Book to Film Club

This is a book club with a difference in which we will explore wonderful films and the great literature that inspired them. On the first Thursday of every month you are invited to join us in watching and discussing the film of the novel you have just read. The course hopes to prove that the cliché that the book is always better than the film is just not true.

Each session will include presentations about the novel and the film, you will have some viewing questions to think about while watching the film and after the film the conversation can move into the gallery space where you can share your opinions over a cup of tea or some lunch.

The next session is from 10:30 to 13:30 on Thursday 4 October when we will be watching  Blake Edwards’ Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Please read Truman Capote’s novel of the same name before the session.  Future books and films will range from the classics to the contemporary including Carol, Double indemnity and Never Let Me Go. We are open to your suggestions too.

The course is led by Depot’s Education Manager, Lisa, who lectures in Film Studies at Sussex Downs College and studied a degree in English Literature.

Course fee: £10.00
