The Art of Adaptation: Books to Movies -- "A Night to Remember" - Now meeting at the library!
The Art of Adaptation, a unique monthly book/film discussion series exploring movie adaptations of books (details below), is now meeting on site at the library.
AUGUST SESSION (August 11): A Night to Remember by Walter Lord (book 1955, film 1958).
Walter Lord’s classic account of the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic has never been out of print since its initial publication over 65 years ago, and is still considered a definitive resource about the doomed ship. The 1958 film version -- far less bombastic than James Cameron’s 1997 mega-blockbuster Titanic – remains highly regarded by historians for its accuracy.
