UPDATED! Dixon Adult Literacy Program Announces Fall 2019 Training Schedule

Learning to read, write and speak well is literally a gift that can’t be lost, taken or misplaced. Once you teach someone to read, they will know how to read forever.

Have you thought about becoming a literacy tutor as a way to give back to the Dixon community? Will you be retiring soon and have more free time? Attend one of DALP's September orientations and see if becoming an adult literacy tutor would  be the right fit for you!  For more information please visit the Dixon Adult Literacy Program .

Hollywood, 1938: As soon as she learns that M-G-M is adapting her late husband’s masterpiece for the screen, seventy-seven-year-old Maud Gage Baum sets about trying to finagle her way onto the set. Nineteen years after Frank’s passing, Maud is the only person who can help the producers stay true to the spirit of the book—because she’s the only one left who knows its secrets.

On a dim winter afternoon, a young Irish immigrant opens the gas taps in his Brooklyn tenement. He is determined to prove—to the subway bosses who have recently fired him, to his pregnant wife—“that the hours of his life belong to himself alone.” In the aftermath of the fire that follows, Sister St. Savior, an aging nun appears, unbidden, to direct the way forward for his widow and his unborn child.
