Book lovers and cinephiles alike love to argue the merits of film adaptations of beloved books. But who's more invested in this process than the book authors themselves? The Boston Book Festival kicks off BBF 2012 on Friday, October 26 at 7:30 pm with a very special conversation among five authors whose book-length works have been turned into films and television shows.
Co-sponsored by the Boston Phoenix and moderated by Wesley Morris, Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Boston Globe, the event will feature Buzz Bissinger (Friday Night Lights), Rachel Cohn (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist), Andre Dubus III (The House of Sand and Fog), Nick Flynn (Another Bullshit Night in Suck City/Being Flynn), and Daniel Handler (A Series of Unfortunate Events).
We'll play clips from the films under discussion and hear first-hand from authors about their books' journeys from page to screen. There will also be plenty of time for audience questions, followed by a book signing at which the conversation can continue.
BBF's Page to Screen kick-off event will be held in the beautiful sanctuary at Old South Church, 645 Boylston St. Tickets are only $15 and are available for purchase online now.
The discussion sets the stage for a weekend all about books and ideas-make plans now to attend this special evening and the full day of presentations to follow at the BBF on October 27!
