In partnership with Hampton Public Libraries, Hampton Arts is excited to announce Adaptation:  A Book to Film Society, where participants (ages 15+) explore how stories are adapted from page to screen.

 

Participants will read chosen books on their own (hard-copies and digital access available through reservation at Hampton Public Libraries; or you may read your own copy). After reading the book, participants will join a virtual watch party via Zoom followed by a group discussion.

 

Discussion topics include:

  • the art of how some great books are adapted into even greater films
  • why some best-sellers fail in their film adaptation
  • discovering how stories come to life in new ways through:
    • the words of authors and screenwriters
    • a director’s vision
    • an actor’s interpretation
    • our own imaginations and perception
