Art of Racing in the Rain book and movie covers The book was better… Or was it?

Read classic and popular books at home, then join us on the second Saturday of the month to see the book come to life in film. After the viewing, we’ll discuss the book, the movie, and everything in between. Remember—don’t judge a book by its movie. Or vice versa!

In September…

READ IT: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
WATCH IT: The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019; Rated PG)

DESCRIPTION: Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television and by listening closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. On the night before his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through, hoping, in his next life, to return as a human.

Psst… Light snacks and drinks will be provided. Feel free to bring in your own lunch if you like!

Ages 18 and up. Registration is required for a select number of reserved seats.
Additional seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Questions? E-mail Jenn at [email protected].
