Book to movie debate: was the movie as good -- or better -- than the book?  Darla, Kimberly, and Beth talk about six book to movie adaptations; some that honored the book and some that missed the mark.  Also Book Clues, with answers from last week and new clues this week!  Upcoming programs, too!

Lit Chat June 2021

Lit Chat June 2021

June 10, 2021

Find out some great new reads as PJ and Bonnie discuss what they've been reading lately -- and whether you should, too.  Next month is a group read for Lit Chat, so join us in discussing The Mistress of the Ritz by Melanie Benjamin in July.

Atascocita Branch Library's Lit Chat was originally Lunch 'n' Lit, the monthly book club for adults.  There are still months when the group selects a book to read together, but now months where you share what you've been reading lately.  Let us know if you've read one of the titles talked about here or something you think we all should read!
