July 27, 2019 - 2:00pm-5:00pm (ended)

3rd floor Community Meeting Room

Book Into Film is a library series meeting approximately every other month, where you are invited to read the book on your own, watch the film with others at the library, and stay after the screening for a discussion of both book and film.

This month's book/film combination is Truman Capote's 1958 novella Breakfast at Tiffany's. We will be watching the 1961 film of the same name, directed by Blake Edwards, starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. Check out one of the library's copies of the book to read before the film viewing. We'll discuss the success of the adaptation, the iconic fashions, the award winning music, the problematic portrayal (by Mickey Rooney) of the movie's one Japanese character, and more.
