The film is set on a Japanese island where dogs are quarantined after the outbreak of the canine flu. Anderson’s characters are voiced by actors including Liev Schreiber, Koyu Rankin, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Yoko Ono. 2019 Academy Award Nominee, Best Animated Feature Film.

Sunday, July 14, at 2 p.m., members of the Green Mountain Boys Project will be speaking at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, Vermont, about their special project. For the past three years, they have been researching the Green Mountain Boys of Vermont. This will be an illustrated talk with plenty of time for questions.

The group has focused for several years on the town of Shoreham, looking for the gravestones of Green Mountain Boys and clearing a cemetery. Their new project is based in Orwell. Find out how you can get involved. The program is cosponsored by the Shoreham Historical Society. The program is included in regular admission ($5 adults/free under 15).

Call 802-949-2000 for more information. The site is located at 497 Mount Independence Road, Orwell, Vermont, six miles east of the intersections of Vermont Routes 22A and 73 near Orwell village. It is open daily, from 10 a.m. — 5 p.m., through October 13. Mount Independence is a National Historic Landmark and one of the best-preserved Revolutionary War archaeological sites in the country.

The Sparkle Barn is accepting proposals from storytellers who want to add a backdrop of visuals to their tale. Create a digital slideshow that will add another layer of depth to the story you share. We are looking for stories that teach us something — How to mountain bike down a ski slope. How to create a piece of art. How to organize your closet or your life. How to create a perfect floral arrangement. How do you make a cake from scratch. How do you do, what you do?

As in past storytelling events, you will have seven minutes to share your story, and in this special experience an opportunity to let your photography enhance your words. Think of it as reading a picture book for adults, to adults.

We will be selecting 10 stories; so please send your ideas to by July 16. Tellers will be notified by July 22 and the event is on Friday, August 2 from 7:30 — 9:30 p.m.

Audience members can reserve their seats by visiting
