WHEELING - The Ohio County Library has announced upcoming programs.

They include:

noon Tuesday, "Wheeling Film Society Conversation: Hitchcock's 'Shadow of a Doubt.'

The Wheeling Film Society, a partnership among the Ohio County Public Library, Oglebay Institute's Towngate Cinema and Wheeling Jesuit University's Fine and Performing Arts Department will launched its second annual season of screening-discussions of classic Hollywood films with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt" Friday.

The Wheeling Film Society's Conversation about the film will take place at Lunch With Books at the Ohio County Public Library at noon Dec. 10.

John Whitehead, Wheeling Jesuit University film studies professor and "Appraising The Graduate: The Mike Nichols Classic and Its Impact in Hollywood" author, will serve as host for both the screening and conversation.

Hitchcock, "The Master of Suspense," often said "Shadow of a Doubt" was his favorite film. Hitchcock released this genre-bending noir comedy about peaceful, small-town America invaded by the spirit of evil in the guise of Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotton).

The script is by Thornton Wilder, in his first foray into Hollywood screenwriting after having established himself in 1938 with "Our Town."

All programs - screenings and conversations - are free of admission charge.

Lunch With Books programs are free and open to the public. Patrons are invited to bring a bag lunch and free beverages are served. Visit ohiocountylibrary.org, call (304) 232-0244, or visit facebook.com/lunchwithbooks for information.

7 p.m. Dec. 10, "Dinner With Books: The Price of Justice." Pittsburgh lawyers Dave Fawcett and Bruce Stanley will discuss the non-fiction legal thriller about their work on the court battle between mine owner Hugh Caperton and former Massey Energy Chief Executive Officer Don Blankenship.

The book also covers the trial against Massey on behalf of Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel to protect its Follansbee coke plant. The book, by best-selling author Laurence Leamer, will be available for purchase and signing.
