Book and a Movie/“It’s a Wonderful Life”
Name: Book and a Movie/“It’s a Wonderful Life”
Date: December 17, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM CST
How familiar are you with the story, “The Greatest Gift,” by Philip Van Doren Stern? Probably more than you think seeing as this “Gift” served as the inspiration for “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the holiday classic that dares to explore what could transpire if an “I wish I was never born” wish was granted. However, one huge question remains—which version does a better job of putting this darker-than-you-think tale before the public: the short story or the movie? You’ll have the opportunity to discuss this oft-debated point if you attend Manitowoc Public Library’s “Book and a Movie” at Lakeshore Cinema—1118 Washington Street—on Monday, December 17th, at 7 PM. Watch the movie and then participate in the discussion of the book versus the movie that follows. Books can be checked out prior to the screening at Manitowoc Public Library. Admission is FREE!!!
