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 August…

READ IT: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fanny Flagg
WATCH IT: Fried Green Tomatoes (1991; Rated PG-13)

DESCRIPTION: A folksy, funny, and endearing story of life in small-town in Alabama during the Depression and in the 1980s. However, the novel’s laughter and tears are interrupted by a strange murder and a still stranger trial.

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].
