WESTPORT — A love of classic Hollywood movies.
And the love between an iconic Hollywood couple who planted roots in Westport.
Those themes blend for a Valentine’s Day program about actors Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward and the films from the era that made them famous, which will be hosted Wednesday, Feb. 14, by the Y’s Men of Westport/Weston at the Westport Library.
The free event will take place at 7 p.m. in the library, 20 Jesup Road. To register online, click here.
Speakers at the program will be singer/artist Melissa Newman, one of Newman and Woodward’s daughters, and Foster Hirsh, a professor of film at Brooklyn College.
Melissa Newman last year published a book, “Head Over Heels,” chronicling the relationship between her famous parents and their lives in Westport and California.
A year earlier, she discussed Paul Newman’s posthumously published memoir, “The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man,” at a Westport Country Playhouse program.
Foster Hirsch, whose latest book is titled, “Hollywood and the Movies of the Fifties,” is the author of 15 other books about film and theater. For questions, call the Westport Library at 203-291-4800.
