Join us for this month's film when we screen The Catcher was a Spy. This film, directed by Ben Lewin, is an American spy thriller based on the real-life post-baseball career of Moe Berg. Berg was raised in Newark, New Jersey, and graduated from Princeton - quite an accomplishment for a young Jewish man in the anti-Semitic Ivy League university system - and went on to chalk up a 15-year career in major league baseball. During World War II, he worked for the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA, in the effort to beat Germany in the race to build the first atomic bomb. We are pleased to have Barry Gross -- attorney, lifelong baseball fanatic, and childhood friend of Mike Solomon -- present this movie.

Join us for dinner at 6:00 p.m. We’ll be ordering pizza from Little Red Hen, so please contact Carol McCardell by noon on the 16th to R.S.V.P. for dinner ($5 per person). Or, simply come for the movie at 7:00.

Feel free to bring friends, family, salads (especially welcome), beverages, and/or a nosh, but no popcorn please!

Please contact Carol McCardell with questions.
