Read the Book / See the Movie Club

The GPS Read the Book/See the Movie club was the first club formed by our organization. The club's goal was to expand our reading and film horizons by comparing and contrasting films to their source material. We have read books by H. G. Wells, Robert Heinlein, Mark Twain, Jane Austen and other well known authors. We have also strayed from classic novels and short stories to read such works as plays by William Shakespeare and the original screenplay for the Batman feature film. The club has become an education in literary and film history as well as an education in how the film industry adapts written material. We've also had a lot of fun!

The club meets on the second Friday of every month. Social time at 7:00 pm - movie beings promptly at 7:30 pm. Location rotates among club members' homes. The club also sponsors a couple of "a-thons" per year (such as the Bond-a-thon or the Toon-a-thon).

If you have any questions about the club, like what is the book/movie and where to meet, please email Mary and George at [masked].

    The location should be in an easily accessible landmark location, such as the downtown mpls library. That would be really easy for me to get to and from, especially if the light rail is completed soon.

    Depending on how many people to expect, I could probably host a book/movie night at my house in Hopkins. Nothing fancy but I wouldn't mind giving it a try.
