'Agatha' at Ocean City Library

What Is It: The Ocean City Fine Arts League's series of art-inspired movies features "Agatha" this month. The 1979 film stars Vanessa Redgrave as Agatha Christie, the classic British mystery writer, plus Dustin Hoffman as a writer assigned to interview her.

What To Expect: This isn't a story by Agatha Christie, it's one about the beloved author. In 1926, Christie disappeared for weeks - as an American newspaper columnist tried to track her down. This film offers a solution to that mystery, and the program includes a post-movie discussion.

Event Info: The event is free. Showtime is 6:30 p.m. in Lecture Room N-110 at the Ocean City Free Public Library , 1735 Simpson Ave. For more details, see
