Books into Movies

Are you an avid reader and a movie buff? Do you watch film adaptions of books you've read and make mental notes about plot changes and casting choices? Perhaps you should join the library's Books into Movies discussion group. It meets the third Monday of every month at the Central Library, 7:30 to 8:30. On June 16 the group will discuss Jim Thompson's The Grifters and the film  of the same name starring John Cusack and Anjelic Huston, as well as the Robert Redford/Paul Newman film The Sting, based on David Maurer's The Big Con. You're welcome to come regardless of whether you've recently read the books or seen the movies. Next month the group meets July 22 to discuss The Bridge over the River Kwai (book by Pierre Boulle; movie directed by David Lean).
