Around Town

Get ‘Lost & Found in Egypt’
    Author Kyla Merwin will discuss her book “Lost & Found in Egypt: A Most Unlikely Journey Through the Shifting Sands of Love and Loss” from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12, at The Community Library in Ketchum. The event is in coordination with Iconoclast Books.
    In “Lost & Found in Egypt,” a middle-aged woman with a desk job takes a solo journey to the Middle East after she suffers a devastating loss. Merwin’s trip through Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula triggers reflections on the many tender, tempestuous and sometimes-tragic love affairs that shaped her life.
    Merwin will read a segment of her story, take questions and sign books for sale.
Save the dates for Film Noir Series
    The first Sun Valley Film Noir Series is coming this fall to the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum in September.
    The film series will run on three Thursdays, Sept. 11, 18 and 25, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and will be available soon.
    The theme for the inaugural Sun Valley Film Noir Series is “Dark Dreams.” Organizer Jeannine Gregoire was inspired by the Seattle Art Museum’s film noir series, the oldest in the world, which has been screening for 37 years, pioneered and curated by the museum’s film director Greg Olson.
    The series will open on Sept. 11 with “Double Indemnity” (1944), directed by Billy Wilder, followed on Sept. 18 by “Laura” (1944), directed by Otto Preminger. The closing film for the series on Sept. 25  will be “Kiss Me Deadly” (1955), directed by Robert Aldrich.
    The Sun Valley Film Noir Series is seeking sponsorship, as it is in the process of becoming a nonprofit organization. For details, email Gregoire at
