“Polar Express” screened in Ludlow, part of benefit

Holiday programs continue at FOLA

Friday, December 20 at 6 p.m.—LUDLOW— This holiday season, Friends of Ludlow Association will take advantage of the opportunity to showcase a great local writer and musicians while supporting a good cause, the Dana-Farber Cancer Marathon Challenge.

Things kick off on Friday Dec. 20 with a screening of “The Polar Express” at 6 p.m. The movie is free, but donations for the effort are appreciated and help Lisa Marks and her efforts for the Dana-Farber Cancer Research Marathon Challenge.  The movie is rated G and it runs 1 hour and 40 minutes.

There are rumors that Santa Claus might be making an appearance after the show.

On Dec. 21 at 7 p.m., FOLA and The Book Nook will co-host an evening with Jon Clinch, Camille Parker and Graham Parker of Gypsy Reel.  Clinch will read excerpts from his recent novel, “Marley,” which recounts the life of one Jacob Marley, former partner of one Ebenezer Scrooge.  Ron Charles of the Washington Post called it a “a clever riff on ‘A Christmas Carol.’”  Clinch and the Parkers will perform festive holiday music as well. Copies of “Marley” will be on sale and can be signed by Clinch after the performance.

FOLA hopes to see you in the Heald Auditorium, 37 S. Depot St. in Ludlow, to help celebrate the Christmas season in Ludlow.
