“Back to the Future” Doesn’t Make Any Sense At All
It’s Oct. 21, 2020, fully five years after our promised future of flying cars and self-lacing Nikes. Instead, we’re living in—gestures broadly at everything—this on-fire garbage truck with no brakes. To mourn the glorious future that never was, let’s talk about all the plot holes, blown predictions, and time paradoxes that make the “Back to the Future” movies the greatest films that, upon reflection, make no sense at all. Presented by the Belle Glade Branch.

Halloween Baking: Tears of a Lost Soul Cookies
These cookies are delectable—warm, soft, and sugary, they’ll fill you with a slight melancholy and remind you of those you once loved. It’s not a coincidence. Legend has it that these cookies are made with the tears of a lost soul: a ghost who once loved and was loved but is now condemned to wander the astral plane alone. We’ll substitute vanilla for actual ghost tears, but, y’know, same idea. Easy, step-by-step instructions—beginner bakers welcome! Recipe provided via email after registration. Presented by the Loula V. York Branch.
