Book to Movie Discussion Update

On Monday a group of us selected the novel we will read for the Book to Movie Discussion taking place later this summer.

We will be discussing ...

(Drum roll please)

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.

When it was first published in 1967, "The Outsiders" defied convention with its immediate, deeply sympathetic portrayal of Ponyboy and his struggle to find a place for himself in a difficult world. Thirty years later, it speaks to teenagers as powerfully as ever.

Sounds good, huh?

If you need a copy of the book, check our catalog or ask a librarian.

We'll watch the movie on http://www.arlingtonva.us/calendar/default.aspx#EventDetails_2763, and discuss it and the book (and eat pizza!) on http://www.arlingtonva.us/calendar/default.aspx#EventDetails_2764.
