As D.C. residents, we all occupy black space, regardless of ethnicity or background.

Books on Film

Monday, Jan. 12, 2015, 6 p.m.

  Have you ever wondered what your favorite book would look like on film? Generations of filmmakers have answered that question by using literature as a reservoir for their creative vision.  "Books on Film" is a monthly series that celebrates the written word on film by screening movie versions of popular and classic books. Films are screened on the second Monday of every month at 6 p.m. in Room A-5, located on library's lower level.  Just call 202-727-0321 to see what's playing this month!
