The Art of Adaptation: Books to Movies -- "Accidental Tourist" In-Person

The Art of Adaptation is a unique monthly book/film discussion series exploring movie adaptations of books (details below).

JUNE ZOOM SESSION (June 9): (postponed from May) The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler (book 1985, film 1988).

William Hurt plays a man mourning the death of his son, but gradually coming out of his shell thanks to the efforts of a zany young woman (Geena Davis, in an Oscar-winning performance).  Tyler’s sensitive, nuanced book won the National Book Critics Circle Award and was a Pulitzer-Prize finalist, and the adaptation (by Frank Galati and director Lawrence Kasdan) is faithful to her text.
