The Art of Adaptation: Books to Movies -- "A Walk in the Woods" In-Person

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

JULY ZOOM SESSION (July 14): A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson (book 1997, film 2015).

Celebrate summer and the great outdoors with our July selection.  Travel writer Bill Bryson’s autobiographical story, described by CNN as the funniest travel book ever written, portrays his quixotic attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail with a close friend.  Robert Redford plays Bryson in the film, with Nick Nolte his fellow hiker.  Nick Offerman, Mary Steenburgen, and Emma Thompson round out a fine cast.

[ Check out ebook or e-audiobook on OverDrive | Stream Movie on Hoopla ]
