BLUE HILL, Maine — Blue Hill Public Library will present a series of intriguing films — What’s On Your Plate?: How Food Choices Relate to Our Health and the Health of Our Planet — hosted by Blue Hill homeopathic practitioner and nutrition educator Edee Howland.

The film series, scheduled for 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month through May, is designed to help people learn about easy ways to be truly, deeply nourished and have a healthy winter.
