Film group viewing, discussing 'The Color Purple"

The Warrenton Library’s Friends of Film group will watch and discuss the film The Color Purple, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Whoopi Goldberg and Danny Glover, at 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 14, in the library program room. Light snacks and beverages are being provided by the Friends of the Fauquier Library; attendance is free.

This 1985 film garnered Best Picture of the Year and Best Actress awards. Author Alice Walker’s intimate story of suffering, endurance, and triumph is set in early 20th century rural South. Celie Johnson (Whoopi Goldberg) is a browbeaten, much abused, nearly illiterate black farm girl who, over the course of 40 years, grows into a woman of self-assurance and wit, a woman with her own dreams and identity.
