Pequot Library is excited to bring back a beloved community event, Pequot Presents: The Oscars. Gather in the Library’s historic auditorium to view all of the Academy Award Best Picture nominees prior to the Academy Awards on March 10th. 

Director: Cord Jefferson

Starring: Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, John Oritz, Erika Alexander, and Issa Rae

Description: Thelonious “Monk” Ellison has grown frustrated by the politics of the publishing world. While his book is successful within the insular world of academia, it fails to achieve the popular success he desires. In an attempt at satire, Ellison publishes an outlandish, stereotypically “black” book, and to his surprise, it garners significant acclaim.

Please see the full schedule below. While this film series is free and open to the public, it is helpful to RSVP.
