Berkeley Public Library invites you to participate in an examination of An Education, a stylish coming-of-age story about a teenage girl in 1960s suburban London. It explores how her life changes with the arrival of a playboy nearly twice her age. This award-winning film was adapted by Nick Hornby from a chapter of Lynn Barber’s memoir of the same name. Discussion group participants will read the book at home and then gather at 1:30 on Sunday, November 20, 2011 in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room at Berkeley’s Central Library, 2090 Kittredge Street to view the film together. After viewing the film, participants will discuss the book, the movie and the art of adaptation.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, this free Book and Film program at the Central Library offers adult and teen patrons the opportunity to discuss books, films and the art of adaptation. Participation is limited and registration is required. Please call (510) 981-6148 to register for this program.
