Some critics allege that that great books make bad movies. What artistic challenges do filmmakers face adapting literary works from page to screen? How do directors, screenwriters and actors transform ideas on the page into images on the screen? How does literature inspire film? How does film inspire literature?

The State Theatre and Friends of the Library/Youth Outreach invite you to explore these and other questions through interactive pre-film discussions moderated by experts.
