Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption

On Sunday, June 11, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm in the Cardinal Room, I will be leading a discussion of "What's Better: The Book or the Movie." That day we will be discussing a novella by Stephen King. 1982, Stephen King’s Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption was one of 4 novellas published in the book Different Seasons. It was adapted to film and released as “Shawshank Redemption” in 1994. The film was nominated for 7 Oscars. Today it remains No. 1 out of the 250 top-rated films of all time by the movie database: IMDb.

Tim Robbins stars as Andy Dufresne, a man arrested for murdering his wife and her lover. In 1948, Andy’s found guilty and given to 2-consecutive life sentences in the fictitious corrections’ facility: Shawshank Prison. There Andy meets Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding, played by Morgan Freeman. In time, the two convicts develop a life-long friendship.

I know that many have never read the book that the movie is based on. The novella is only 110 pages and a very quick read.
If you register for the program, there'll be a book discussion copy that can be checked out for 6 weeks and a DVD for one week at the Info Desk.

Our "What's Better: The Book or the Movie" discussions are usually a raucous event so please sign up and join us!
