Book vs. Movie: Stardust

Location: Bailey Cove Branch Library
Date: Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm

Join us for a brand new book club at Bailey Cove Library, "Book vs. Movie"! On odd months (September, November, January, etc.) we will watch a feature film that was adapted from the plot of a book.  On the even months (October, December, February, etc.) we will take an hour to discuss the book from which the film was derived, and decide which one wins in a contest of "book vs. movie". It is highly recommended that you read the book *before* attending the film for best results. Brown-bag lunches are welcome! Drinks will be provided.
