Sunday, November 22, 2020 | 5:00 pm Book and Movie Discussion
Please join us on Sunday, November 22, at 5 PM to discuss The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler. The Big Sleep is a hardboiled crime novel written in 1939, introducing the detective Philip Marlowe. It has been adapted for film twice, in 1946 and again in 1978. The story is noted for its complexity, with characters double-crossing one another and secrets being exposed throughout the narrative.
From the comfort of home we will also watch the 1946 film noir directed by Howard Hawks, with a screenplay by William Faulkner, starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. During our meeting we will discuss the differences between the book and the movie.
Both book and movie are available from our system catalog and can be ordered by logging onto the Mid-Hudson Library website.
We will socially distance meet at the library. Please bring a mask. We will offer Zoom for those that cannot attend in person; please let us know in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
