“The book is always better!”   Is it? Join us for I Read That Movie, a book-to-film club where each month we’ll read a different children’s novel, watch the film adaptation of that novel, and have a short discussion on differences, similarities, likes, dislikes, and whether or not the movie can ever be better than the book!
