Stephen Frears’ 2016 film ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ will be screened at the Shelter Island Library on Tuesday, January 17 at 7 p.m. Written by Nicholas Martin, the biographical comedy-drama stars Meryl Streep as Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress who, in the 1940s, became an opera singer known for her painful inability to sing.
