The Life of Books – On the Big Screen

BooksDuring the Festival there will be an exhibition exploring the history of literature in film. Additionally there is a fun quiz for film buffs and book lovers of all ages to test their knowledge: Do you know who directed the 1935 adaptation of Buchan’s The 39 Steps ?

Quiz master and curator Gemma Savage is a book and film devotee, who is looking forward to sharing with you some thoughts about the relationship with printed text and the silver screen. Why not come along at 1pm on Sunday and join in the debate about whether the film version can ever be as good as the book?
