When you think of Stephen King, you probably think prolific, imaginative, creepy, hard-to-forget. But he’s been bending and blending genres for decades with his storytelling -- did you know he wrote Stand By Me and The Shawshank Redemption? You might well have known he wrote The Shining -- but just think, the same person wrote all three! It’s rare and exciting when an author shape-shifts so successfully, so this fall our favorite movie facilitator Lee Shoquist will lead discussions of the movies based on all three. Movie Club at Prairie Path Books has garnered consistent “WOW, we LOVED that!” feedback, so if you haven’t been, you simply must - no matter which aspect of cinema you love: characters and casting, production, cinematography and art direction, storyline and screen adaptation, or behind-the-scenes deets and Oscar buzz -- Lee will deliver dazzling insights and answer any questions you have. See you soon!
For Movie Club you watch the movie on your own and come over to discuss it,
like a Book Club.
$15/person; $25/couple, all events begin at 2:00 p.m. and run approximately
90 minutes (Lee gets excited and sometimes goes longer but we love it).
