I Read That at the Library: Where the Crawdads Sing

Our popular “page-to-screen” book club, I Read That Movie @ the Library, begins 2024 with one of the most popular books of recent years.
For January, we are reading the 2018 coming-of-age debut novel Where the Crawdads Sing by zoologist Delia Owens. The book was the top selling book on The New York Times Best Sellers lists of 2019 and 2020, and has become one of the best-selling books of all time.
On January 27, we’ll be screening the 2022 film adaptation directed by Olivia Newman, produced by Reese Witherspoon (who had made the book a selection of her popular book club), and based on a screenplay by Lucy Alibar, who co-wrote the screenplay for the film Beasts of the Southern Wild.
We’ll have free refreshments and a discussion about the film and the book after the screening. As always, everyone is welcome to attend, even if you haven’t read the book!
