Some of the most enduring films have been inspired by great literature. And some books seemed to be nothing special until brought into sharper focus by a great filmmaker. The Eldredge Public Library would like to invite you to join our a book-to-film discussion group. On the second Saturday of each month we meet at the Library at 2:00 pm, having read the pre-selected book for the month. We watch the movie version together, and then comes the fun as we discuss the merits of each. Facilitated by a Library staff member, the group chooses the titles. We are have an interesting exchange of ideas, thoughts, and impressions. Most of all, we enjoy an evening of fun in a relaxed setting with congenial people!
