Made Into Movies: Featured Books for August

You saw the movie and loved it—read the book it was adapted from; get all the details of the story that didn’t make it into the movie; and love it all over again!

During the month of August, look for the display of made-into-movies books in the Featured Books section on the 1stfloor of the John M. Pfau Library.

And if you haven’t seen the movie yet, read the book first to enrich your movie experience when you do see it.
