Join us as we begin a new, unique book discussion experience that will compare recent popular films with the original novels on which they’re based. Discussions will take place approximately a week after a public screening of the film at the Library. Which was better, the book or the movie? Here’s your chance to decide and discuss. DVD’s of the films can be reserved for when a copy becomes available for those not able to attend the showings, or perhaps you caught the movie in its theatrical release. Come into the Library for your copy of the book. Here’s the schedule so far:
“The Light Between Oceans” (author: M.L. Stedman)
