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 and after the discussion 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 7 February when we will be watching Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go.  Please read Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel of the same name before the session.  Future books and films will range from the classics to the contemporary including Hidden Figures and Don’t Look Now. We are open to your suggestions too.

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

Course fee: £10.00

The book club is a great idea.  Not only does it allows us a month to read the novel on which a film is based, but also it encourages discussion on the novel led by a committed lecturer on literature and film whose passion about the subjects is inspiring.
