Friends of the Beaufort Library’s 2018 Books Sandwiched In program gets underway Jan. 22 with a presentation by Ron and Rebecca Turner, founders of the Beaufort International Film Festival.

The Tuckers will be reviewing Do Movies Have a Future? By David Denby.

This 2013 publication by Denby, a writer with the New Yorker, has been described as an “essential guide for movie-lovers looking for ammunition and hope.”

The popular Books Sandwiched In program features eight book reviews every Monday from noon until 1 p.m. at the USCB Center for the Arts, 805 Carteret Street, Beaufort. The event is free with coffee and cookies provided by the Friends.

The Friends of Beaufort Library is an all-volunteer group which supports the Beaufort, Lobeco and St. Helena libraries. Through memberships, fundraising and volunteers, we fund all the programs, classes, books, equipment and other materials that the state and county budgets don’t cover.  For more information, visit
