But the Book Was Better ….

Calling all readers and film buffs!  

“But the Book Was Better …” is a book/film discussion series sponsored by the Cinema 100 Film Society and Friends of the Morton Mandan Public Library.

This year we’re talking about True Grit by Charles Portis and the films of the same title.  The 1969 version starred John Wayne, Kim Darby, and Glen Campbell, and the 2010 Coen brothers version starred Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin.

Read the book and watch the films on your own, then head to the Morton Mandan Public Library (609 West Main) for lively discussions!

  • Book discussion – Sunday, February 5 – 1:15 to 3 p.m.
  • Film discussion – Sunday, March 18 – 1:15 to 3 p.m.

The book and films can be borrowed from libraries, including the BSC Library, or rented/purchased from booksellers and video stores.
