Pennington Public Library welcomes Director Jared Flesher, who presents his award winning film ‘Field Biologist’. A documentary about a curious but ‘somewhat rudderless’ 22 year old from NJ who heads to the Costa Rican rainforest to study wildlife, “The film presents the major challenges facing biodiversity on Earth… while also raising some fundamental questions: What makes someone a scientist? How important is a formal education?” A Q&A with the director follows the film. FREE, 7pm.

The Princeton School Garden Cooperative – a group working to foster garden & food-based education in our schools & community – presents a screening of the documentary ‘Eating Alabama’ at Princeton Public Library. The movie follows a young couple who attempts to find a simpler life in the south, attempting to eat as their ancestors did. As they recognize how the food system has changed, the movie becomes ‘a thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability.’  Mayor Liz Lempert will introduce the film. Samples from Cherry Grove Farm before the film and the bent spoon after the film give the audience a taste of our local flavor & community! FREE, 7-9pm. http://princetonlibrary.org/events/2014/10/peff-special-film-eating-alabama
