Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut
The Story of Adele H. (L'histoire d'Adele H.) (1975, 96 mins.)
In what is arguably Truffaut's purest and, perhaps cruelest, exploration of obsessive and destructive love, The Story of Adele H. adapts the real-life diaries of Adele Hugo, the daughter of French writer Victor Hugo. Adele (Isabelle Adjani) follows her English soldier fiance to Nova Scotia only to face bitter and humiliating rejection. One of Truffaut's most haunting and disturbing films and one in which the director comes closest to exposing the mysterious and incurable addiction to love.
