Tonight: Stone River film presentation at 5:30 p.m. in the Historic Town Hall. An underground but mighty river links the cities of Carrara in Tuscany, Italy, and Barre, Vermont. It carries the tragic epic story of an entire community of immigrants from all over Europe who are engaged in the titanic struggle against stone. Rising from the quarries of the Apuan Alps where Michelangelo obtained blocks of marble, it finds its outlet in Vermont, amidst social battles, tragic deaths, and the splendor of the art of sculpture.
