The Rock Island Library will celebrate the pairing of movies, books and food with three “Dinner and a Movie” nights in the Rock Island Main Library Community Room, 401 19th St.

Attendees are encouraged to bring dinner from home or a local restaurant to the library community room and enjoy a movie based on a food-related book on these nights.

June 19, 5:30 p.m.: Movie is based on “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle-Stop Café” by Fannie Flagg; July 17, 5:30 p.m.: Movie is based on “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert; Aug. 21, 5 p.m.: Movie is based on the book “Chocolat” by Joanne Harris. This special “chocolate fest” event will feature chocolate samples from area vendors.

Local restaurants offering specials in support of the event include Harris Pizza #1, Hungry Hobo, and Pizza and Subs. For details on how to take advantage of the specials, pick up an Eating Passport at the Rock Island Main, 30/31 or Southwest Branches. Offer good while supply lasts.

Events are part of the library’s free “Books are Brain Food” summer activities for adults. For details on other summer events for all ages, visit www.rockislandlibrary.org, follow Facebook/rockislandlibrary or call 309-732-7323.
