Some are old favorites; some are news- worthy; some are by exciting new authors. The saying is, "Never judge a book by its movie." Perhaps you can judge a movie by its book. There are some dra- matic real-life stories. Consider reading "13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi," by Mitchell Zuckoff. The movie directed by Michael Bay, stars John Krasinski with a release date in January. Hopefully you can catch it on pay-per view. If you're into more thrills, try "The Finest Hours: The True Story of the US Coast Guard's Most Daring Sea Rescue," by Michael ]. Tougias. It tells one of the most heroic rescue stories ever lived. A movie by the same name also came out in January and stars Chris Pine and Casey Affieck. Finally, read "Betrayal: The Crisis in the Catholic Church," by The Investigative Staff of the Boston Globe. This narrative points out the benefits of "serious long- form investigative reporting" and inspired the Academy Award win- ning "Spotlight," starring Rachel McAdams and Mark Ruffalo. Also on our library shelves is "Room," by Emma Donoghue. This complex story is told in the voice of 5-year-old Jack, whose entire existence has been in an 11 x ll-foot room. The movie stars Brie Larson, winner of the Academy Award for her role as Ma/Joy. For fans of Nicholas Sparks there is "The Choice." It is described as "a tender and moving love story and a quick read." The movie by the same name was broadcast on USA Network. "The Martian," by Andy Weir is a sci-fi adventure about astronaut Mark Watney, one of the first people to walk on Mars. "Now he's sure he'll be the first person to die there." Matt Damon stars in the award-winning movie. For the kids there are lots of books turning into movies in the next few months. Young adults' have "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," by Ransom Riggs. A personal favorite of Sue's, this one features levitating girls and invisible boys. The movie won't be out until December. So, there's lots of time to read the book. The whole family can enjoy "The BFG," by Roald Dahl. BFG stands for Big Friendly Giant who is "no ordinary bone-crunching giant." It would make a great read- aloud. Set to release on July 1, 2016; the movie stars Bill Hader. And one last one to anticipate is "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," by Newt Scamander (AKA J.K. Rowling.) This is a fictional text- book from Hogwarts, and is sure to be a solid hit as a movie. It won't be out until November and the proceeds will go to charity. This time around, the only thing you can be sure of finding at the library are the books listed and the "Room" DVD. So, check your TV listings, theater or pay- per-view for the screen versions of the rest. Until next month, we'll see you at the library. .JOHNDeSRe I MIES OUTLAND
