Movie night at West Town library

By Jason Nosek

Next Thursday July 25 at 6pm, the West Town Branch library will continue our POV Films series with a screening of the documentary "Ping Pong." This film follows eight players competing in the Over 80 World Table Tennis Championships in China’s Inner Mongolia.

British players Terry, 81, who has been given a week to live, and Les, 91, a weightlifter and poet, are going for the gold. Inge, 89, from Germany, has used table tennis to paddle her way out of dementia. And Texan Lisa, 85, is playing for the first time. Ping Pong is a wonderfully unusual story of hope, regret, friendship, ambition, love— and sheer human tenacity in the face of aging and mortality.

Thank you for supporting your local branch library; we hope to see you soon.
