Join us as we discuss the merits of the book over the movie. Read the book and watch the movie that inspired it! We will be discussing the Secret Life of Walter Mitty by James Thurber and the two movie adaptations: 2013, starring Ben Stiller; and 1947 starring Danny Kaye. Both films are available as DVD. The 1947 version is also available as eVideo through Kanopy.

We will be using Jitsi Meet, an online meeting platform for our book club/book discussion. Registration is limited and specific instructions on how to access Jitsi Meet will be sent to the registrants one day before the book club meeting.
