Join the Book to Film Club!

Compare and contrast books with their big-screen counterparts

great gatsbyAre you a film critic?
Is the book always better than the movie?
Do you like to read the book before you see the movie, or see the movie before you read the book?


Join the Takoma Park Library's Book to Film Club for monthly discussions on novels and their movie adaptations. Each month, the Club reads a novel that has been turned into a film. We meet to view the movie together, then have a lively discussion about our reactions to both the film and book.

The meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month and all are welcome to attend. Be sure to grab a copy of this month's book from a staff member, or call the branch at 202-576-7252. 

This April, we're reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and watching the related film directed by Baz Luhrmann.

Join us on April 22 at 6 p.m. to enjoy the film and discuss!
