Reel Discussion at Richmond library features film about how Mary Poppins was created

post by Billie Owens in Event, richmond library, walt disney

Event:  Reel Discussions

Place:  Richmond Memorial Library, 19 Ross St., Batavia

Date & Time:  Thursday, May 22nd at 6 p.m.

Come view the movie and join us for a group discussion afterward. This month’s movie is “Saving Mr. Banks.” This film is a fascinating look at the circuitous "collaborative" process Walt Disney, his creative team, and author P.L. Travers engaged in to bring the character Mary Poppins to life on the Big Screen in the early 1960s. This touching, funny film is really two stories nicely tied up in one appealing package.
