From Page to Screen: A Book & Movie Discussion Group (Book Night) In-Person

Join us for a new book and movie discussion group! The book night meetup will be Tuesday, March 28 at 7 pm and we'll be discussing News of the World by Paulette Jiles. Copies can be requested through the library catalog. Please register below!

About the group: From Page to Screen: A Book & Movie Discussion Group will be a unique group experience. We'll read a book and discuss it together in one month. Then, we'll gather together in the next month to watch the movie adaptation in our library's auditorium. Overall, there will be three books and their adaptations for a total of six meetups. The book night will be a discussion group style, while the movie night will be open to everyone.

When we meet: From Page to Screen: A Book & Movie Discussion Group will meet on the fourth Tuesday evening of every month (January through June). The book night will meet at 7 pm in person (unless otherwise noted) in January, March, and May. The movie night will meet at 6:30 pm in the library's auditorium in February, April, and June. There will be a discussion following the movie. Movie night attendees are not required to stay for the discussion. 

How to join: Registration is required for the book night discussion. Registration is recommended for the movie night. Free and open to adults. If registration is full, please contact Ben Hanley at bhanley@barringtonlibrary.org. Email is required for the facilitator to send out group notices or communications.
