CANCELLED -- The Art of Adaptation: Books to Movies -- "The Joy Luck Club"

NOVEMBER 10 SESSION CANCELLED

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

NOVEMBER SESSION (November 10): The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan (book 1989, film 1993).

Tan’s bestselling novel focuses on four Chinese-American families living in San Francisco, exploring the conflicting expectations of the China-born mothers and their assimilated American daughters.  Tan adapted her own novel (with Ronald Bass) for the film version, which was later selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
