    The Power of Words: Book to Screen

January 6 & 7, 2016

Introduced in 2015 by Barabara keller and Susan Rosser, Book To Screen is a popular Festival sidebar shining a light on the often complex, always invigorating ways in which the written word informs and inspires motion pictures. More movies than not are sourced from literature: novels, short stories, comic books, biographies, journalism and other forms of non-fiction.

Book To Screen is a two-day event. Day One consists of film screenings. Day Two is a symposium featuring conversations with a remarkable array of writers and screenwriters exploring the push-and-pull between the literary and cinematic worlds.
