WALLA Presents MILLIONS on Monday, December 9 at 6:45 p.m.
When a deeply religious seven-year-old finds a bag of British pounds only a few days before the United Kingdom switches over to the Euro, what is he to do? Determine how many good deeds he can accomplish with it, of course! Unfortunately for Damian, the bank robbers who lost the money have very different ideas regarding the fate of these pounds sterling and they are not going to let their windfall escape without a fight.
Directed by Danny Boyle and adapted from Frank Cottrell Boyce’s Carnegie Medal-winning novel, Millions (2004, 98 minutes, PG-13) will be presented by WALLA on Monday, December 9 at 6:45 p.m.

SNOW by Orhan Pamuk
Religious vs. Secular. Urban vs. Rural. Orhan Pamuk delves into the differences that set the current Turkish cultural scene and that resonate with many of us in the States as well. The story is told through a short but momentously eventful trip to a small snow-bound town on Turkey’s northeast border with Armenia, a town where Pamuk’s protagonist, Ka, re-kindles a long lost romance, finds his loyalties torn between national government minders and local terrorist would-be-friends and where Ka begins to come to terms with his own urban sophistication and inner longing for traditional village life. Snow is a part of the West Lafayette Public Library’s ongoing “Muslim Journeys” program and well worth a read.
