Many of the greatest movies were adapted from books, tomes ranging from classic to obscure, from hardboiled detective pulp fiction to science fiction to children’s fables, by writers like Ian Fleming, Stephen King, Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, Raymond Chandler and so many more. This blogathon is your opportunity to focus on great cinema that started as words on a page.
The event takes place April 8, 9 and 10, 2016.
There are so many books to movies that no duplicates are allowed, BUT different movies from the same book are fine. You can complain about the adaptations, you can hail the director’s choices or you can cover a whole book series.
Video/booktube and podcast entries are welcome along with the traditional blog posts. Books and films from all countries are fair game so please feel free to travel the world in search of great literary adaptations!
Just check the roster below to see which topics are already taken and then sign up using the handy form. When blogathon time comes just tweet us the link or leave it in the comments and we’ll all have fun reading your writing about film that came from reading writing.
