Let's read the book and then watch the movie! Lots of great movies are based on books: Fried Green Tomatoes, The Shining, Wag the Dog, Trainspotting, Blade Runner, Munich... It's fun to experience both forms of storytelling.

Please read the book first, then we will meet either in the lobby before the movie or in the lobby after the movie, after which we will walk to get coffee/lunch/dinner. We will post comments on the meetup app as to where we are in the lobby and where our seats are in the theater.
