From Page to Screen

Some of our most popular books at Halifax Public Libraries are titles that have been adapted for film or TV. As soon as a new film adaptation is announced, we often see demand for the book increase right away. With that in mind, we are highlighting some great books that have been (or will be) turned into movies.

Some people insist that you must read the book first. Others prefer to watch a movie or tv show first and become inspired to read the book. Regardless of order, we believe the book is always better than the movie (we may be a little biased). 

Have fun picking out your next great book. We’ve included release dates for each title (if available), so you have all the information you need to plan out your 2019 reading schedule.
