February Reel Readers: Lord of the Flies
by William Golding
Read the Book! See the Movie!
Join us for dinner and a movie at 6:00pm on Tuesday, March 24 as our Reel Readers series continues with Lord of the Flies, starring Balthazar Getty and Chris Furrh.

At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate; this far from civilization the boys can do anything they want. Anything. They attempt to forge their own society, failing, however, in the face of terror, sin and evil. And as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far from reality as the hope of being rescued.


How Reel Readers Works

  • Read the book, if you have time. Each month, prior to the movie showing, copies of the selected title will be available in the library’s rotunda.
  • Join us for the movie even if you haven’t read the book. Bring your own carry-out dinner to enjoy while you watch the movie.
  • Talk about the book and film. Following the movie, you are invited to participate in a guided discussion.
  • You might win fabulous prizes when you attend Reel Reader events!

For more information about Reel Readers or any other adult services programs, please visit the reference desk or call 599-1270.
