Some of the most enduring films have been inspired by great literature. And some books seemed to be nothing special until brought into sharper focus by a great filmmaker. If you love to read books and watch movies, why not combine your passion for both and meet like-minded people at our new Book to Screen discussion?
Our first Book to Screen discussion will be of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins! Here’s how it works:
Stop by the Reference Desk to register and get a copy of the book. Copies of the book are generally available one month before the program and are yours to keep. You can also sign up online and then stop by the library to pick up your book. Can’t make it to the library to sign up? No problem! Sign up online and download the eBook for free through our Digital Branch.
Read the book! If you find you are short on time, audiobooks are a great way to get your reading in. After you’ve read the book, meet at the library for a brief discussion.
After the book discussion, you will receive a complimentary movie ticket to a screening at The Plaza Cinema and Media Arts Center. The ticket is valid for the showing scheduled in conjunction with the book discussion only. After the screening, comes the fun as we discuss the merits of each. Facilitated by Patchogue-Medford library and Plaza staff members, we will have an interesting exchange of ideas, thoughts, and impressions. Most of all, we enjoy a fun program in a relaxed setting with congenial people!

7:00 – 7:30PM – Book discussion at Pat-Med Library
