Why Is the Movie Always Different Than the Book?

screenflier2016Have you ever read a book and then went to see the movie version, only to find that they were very different? Why are characters and events often changed? Our panel of screenwriters and authors will discuss the challenging process of taking the printed word and bringing it to life on the screen. Vassar College Professor Joseph Muszynski will lead the discussion with panelists Jim DeFelice (American Sniper), K.L. Going (Fat Kid Rules the World), Jack Kelly (Protection), and Valerie Martin (Mary Reilly). Join them on May 21 at 3:15 p.m. – in the Gallery at the Millbrook Library.
