Classics Book Club Never judge a book by its movie! These groups meet to talk about classic novels that have made it onto the big screen. Watch the movie or read the book, or both. It’s up to you but either way the books/films will generate lively discussions.
Most recently the Orange Evening Classics talked about Harper Lee’s classic American novel To Kill A Mockingbird and the movie starring Gregory Peck. It is one of the first times a group of people have all agreed on a book – “Loved it”, “it is perfection”, “it is beautifully written”, they said. Come along to any of these discussions that may interest you:
