The film at the Rose Theatre, 235 Taylor St., at noon Sunday will be followed by a discussion.
The Port Townsend Library Community Read 2014 encourages everyone in town to share a common literary experience in the form of Turn Here Sweet Corn by Atina Diffley.
Diffley's book is a memoir about how a small organic farm fought a corporation that sought to place a crude-oil pipeline through it.
The month's activities — all offered to the public free of charge — lead up to a discussion of the book led by Diffley at 7 p.m. March 27 in the Port Townsend High School auditorium, 1500 Van Ness St.

■ 3 p.m. March 25 — Food Co-op dining area, 414 Kearney St.
