“Based on a book” film series

Except where noted the series will be held 6pm-8pm the second Thursday of each month in the meeting room at the Savannah branch of RHCL from August 2010 thru May 2011. A short discussion will follow each film. Reading the novel beforehand is not required. I just listed the author so you'd know it. The discussion will focus mainly on the film.

The library should own all the films/novels by the time the series starts. The films/novels that we don't currently have we're in the process of buying and they should be on the shelf by August 12th.
The host will be me (Jenny Ellis)--for the time being. If I leave during the series one of the other workers will take over. The schedule should remain the same. It's not a "club" so feel free to come to any or all films.

August 12th: Possession by A. S. Byatt

September 9th: 84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

October 14th: Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

November 11th: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

December 9th: Little Women (1994) by Louisa May Alcott

January 13: Chocolat by Joanne Harris

*March 10: Julie and Julia by Julie Powell

*April 14: Phantom of the Opera (2004) by Gaston LeRoux

*May 12: Pride and Prejudice (2005) by Jane Austen

*5:30pm start time due to length of movie. Otherwise 6:00pm start time.

I shall miss your literary input next semester, but perhaps you will watch the same films at Truman State and Skype chat with us back at Savannah Library?!
