PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE LENGTH OF THE MOVIE WE ARE STARTING BOOK CLUB AT 6:30.

Social hour 6:30-7, short discussion 7-7:30, movie 7:30-10:30.

The original graphic novel (a New York Times bestseller) was adapted into the film Blue Is the Warmest Color, winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival; released in the US this fall by IFC Films/Sundance Selects

In this tender, bittersweet, full-color graphic novel, a young woman named Clementine discovers herself and the elusive magic of love when she meets a confident blue-haired girl named Emma: a lesbian love story for the ages that bristles with the energy of youth and rebellion and the eternal light of desire.

First published in France by Glénat, the book has won several awards, including the Audience Prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe's largest.

The live-action, French-language film version of the book, entitled Blue Is the Warmest Color, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2013. Directed by director Abdellatif Kechiche and starring Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, the film generated both wide praise and controversy. It will be released in the US through Sundance Selects/IFC Films.

Julie Maroh is an author and illustrator originally from northern France.

    Ladies....you all are fabulous..but...a 3 hour subtitled movie, even with multiple sex scenes, is a stretch for me. Hope you have a fun time. ciao

    So will be a book discussion + film? The film is 3 hours long....It didn't feel like 3 hrs to me when I saw this but just want to make sure you are aware of that. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
