From book to screen: The Descendants

Event Description: 


Presented by Starke County Public Library

SCPL offers “From Book to Screen”, a new book club that takes a look at movies and the books that often inspire them. Join us on Saturday, September 28 to watch and discuss the adaptation of Kaui Hart Hemming’s funny and poignant novel, “The Descendants”.
Set in current day Hawaii, the novel explores the journey of Matt King, one of the largest land owners in the state, as he grapples with the unexpected challenges of life after a boating accident leaves  his wife Joanie in a vegetative state. Along for the ride are Matt’s two adolescent daughters, smart-mouth Scottie and rebellious Alex, who reveals Joanie’s secret affair with a local real estate agent. Come watch the adaptation of Hemming’s book and discuss the underlying themes of this often funny and offbeat novel.

Pick up a copy of the book at circulation starting September 1.
Rated R for language including sexual references.
