Hollywood has been relying heavily on popular novels and nonfiction as subject matter for its new releases this year. According to the August 25th edition of Publishers Weekly, a number of upcoming movies will be based on such notable books as The Road, a Pulitzer Prize winner by Cormac McCarthy, and The Soloist, a memoir by Steve Lopez. Why wait until everyone else is looking for these titles once the movies are released? Visit Bernardsville Library’s display, “Coming Soon to a Theatre Near You, “ to find these books before they become hot again.

Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees will be released on October 17th.

Marley & Me, a heartwarming nonfiction story by John Grogan, will open on Christmas Day.

Robert B. Parker’s western novel, Appaloosa, will be appearing in film on October 3rd.

You’ll find an interesting selection of books-to-film on our display shelf located in the video section of the library. Look for the large red movie ticket sign marking the location of the display, “Coming Soon to a Theatre Near You.”
