A book club and social event for the whole family! The 3rd Friday of each month we’ll watch a movie based on a children’s book and discuss the differences.
Since this book club is in the evening, it will also be an optional casual potluck gathering. Bring enough of any dish or drink for your own group and a couple of others, and there should be plenty for everyone. Spellbound will supply plates, napkins, cups, etc. Movie starts running about 6:15.
Friday, March 21st 6:00-8:00
Holes (Disney, 2003, rated PG, 117 minutes)
Holes by Louis Sachar
This winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award features Stanley Yelnats, a kid who is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnats. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the warden makes the boys “build character” by spending all day, every day, digging holes five feet wide and five feet deep. It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake: the warden is looking for something. Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment–and redemption.
