Community Picks: Jim Gillen

The latest “Community Picks” display at the Main Library comes to you from BAPL regular, Jim Gillen. Jim is a poet, recovery educator, and mental health author/researcher. Of his picks, Jim says “Most of the movies I pick have great actors from more financially rewarding ventures showing their abilities to take on roles requiring more humanity. As for my book suggestions, the rationale is based on using the written arts as ways to defeat the daily disappointments and troubles we all face or at least get us through them.”

Jim recommends TV series like The Fall, Jack Irish, and No Offence as well as movies like Loving Vincent and The Blind Side. Check them out (and more!) at BAPL.
