On Display: Not-so-obvious Adaptations

The library’s latest display features “Not-so-obvious Adaptations”. The collection features films that are based on books, but the catch is that the movie titles are different than the original book’s title! For instance, did you know that Forbidden Planet is based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest or that the inspiration for Mean Girls is a book called Queen Bees & Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World?

Summer is a great time to discover a new book and watch a movie, so stop by the library to check out the display and if you don’t see what you’re looking for, please come ask at the Reference Desk.
