Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the of The Shawshank Redemption a few months early with our new book club that compares a book to the movie that it is based on. The film is based on Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption featured in Different Seasons by Stephen King. Copies of both the book and movie are available to borrow at the front desk.
“Page to Screen” is a book club were members compare and contrast the movie to the book it was based on. We will examine aspects such as the storyline, settings, characters, as well as highlight the best merits of each format. We will also have a lively discussion on which one you liked better and why.
Members will read and watch the movie prior to each discussion. Don’t have the movie or book at home? Not a problem, copies of both will be free to borrow with your library card.
Thank you for all who attended our meeting on Thursday, August 17 when we discussed Into the Wild as well as those who sent in suggestions for this discussion.
