Do you like films? And reading? Then Read It, Watch It, Talk About It could be just for you. This brand new group meets monthly to watch films that have been adapted from books. Think Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Twilight and you're on the right lines. Though as well as watching the adaptations we all know so well this group will also delve into films and books that might not be...
Each screening is followed by an informal discussion about what the group think of the film and how it compares to the book it has been inspired by.

Where possible the discussions and screenings also include input from the writer or screenwriter.
