There have been many popular books that have been brought to the silver screen. They range from Diary of a Wimpy Kid to Newbery Medal-winning book Bridge to Terabithia in the children’s category, to The DaVinci Code to the Oscar-winning The King’s Speech for adults.
The Princeton Public Library is featuring The Silver Linings Playbook in their Princeton Reads series and has a Story Slam scheduled for Tuesday, November 11th at 7 PM in the Community Room. Author Matthew Quick will be at the J.W. Middle School auditorium on Friday, November 15th, 7 – 9 PM to discuss the Playbook, as well as his novel Forgive me, Leonard Peacock for young adults.
The library has a large selection of the books and their DVD counterparts to borrow. If you’re more into streaming video, check out Netflix‘s collection of movies adapted from bestsellers. Refresh your memory of The Hunger Games before Catching Fire is released, watch something more gentile with your pre-schooler, like The Velveteen Rabbit or The Little Engine Who Could, or check out Hugo or the classic Charlotte’s Web with older kids.
