The Napa County Library will offer a free screening of the film “Julie and Julia” on March 28 at the Napa Main Library, 580 Coombs St., in Napa.

“Julie and Julia” is an American comedy-drama that contrasts the life of Julia Child in the early years of her culinary career with the life of a young New Yorker, Julie Powell, who seeks to cook all 524 recipes in Child’s cookbook during a single year.

Writer Nora Ephron wrote the screenplay for this movie, which is based on two books: Child’s autobiography, “My Life in France,” and her cookbook, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” It stars Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams as Julie Powell. Supporting actors include Stanley Tucci and Chris Messina.

The free showing, which includes light refreshments, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information, contact Rick Sager at 707-253-4389, or visit the library’s website at

The film is part of the Library’s year-long focus on the theme, “Eat, Move, Read.”
