I Like the Book Better
Have you ever thought, WOW! That movie was way better than the book! On the other hand have you ever been disappointed by a movie version of a novel?
Starting July 2nd every Wednesday night we will be watching and discussing if we do in fact “like the book better”. Come to the Story Room at 6:00 pm to munch on popcorn and view the best and the worst of movies based on popular novels. Selections include The Golden Compass, A Walk to Remember and Eragon.
For ages 13–19. Call Sherrie or Heather at 532-3580 ext 226 for more information.
