Books2Movies

This group will focus on books that were made into movies. Read/Listen to the book, then join us for the movie and a lively talk on the third Friday of each month. This month's book/movie is "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini. The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father's servant, The Kite Runner is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies. Enjoy coffee/tea, candy and popcorn, and meet with fellow book lovers. Brandon Henry, who you may have seen at The Clyde Theater, will lead the discussion.
