Jervis hosts Read the Book, Watch the Movie event Saturday


Jervis Public Library, 613 N. Washington St., will host “Read the Book, Watch the Movie” at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in the fourth floor accessible auditorium.

A discussion of the memoir “The Glass Castle,” by Jeannette Walls will be followed by a showing and discussion of the 2017 film based on the book. Light refreshments will be served.

Published in 2005, the book recounts the unconventional, poverty-stricken upbringing Walls and her siblings had at the hands of their deeply dysfunctional parents.

The film version stars Brie Larson as Walls with Naomi Watts, Woody Harrelson, Max Greenfield, and Sarah Snook in supporting roles. It was directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and written by Cretton, Andrew Lanham, and Marti Noxon.

Copies of the book, including large type and audio copies, are available at the library. The ebook is available to download through the Overdrive/Libby app using your library card.

For more information, call 315-336-4570 or stop at the Information Desk on your next trip to the library.
