Book and a Movie/“Molly’s Game”
Monday, March 18, 2019
How does someone make the journey from being a world-class mogul skier to running an underground poker empire that caters to everyone from captains of industry to professional athletes and Hollywood stars to the Russian mob? Add becoming the target of an FBI investigation and you’ve got the storyline of Molly’s Game,” Molly Bloom’s autobiographical memoir that was adapted into a Hollywood film written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain. One huge question remains, however—which version does a better job of putting this criminally-good tale before the public: the book or the movie? You’ll have the opportunity to discuss this oft-debated point if you attend Manitowoc Public Library’s “Book and a Movie” at Lakeshore Cinema—1118 Washington Street—on Monday, March 18th, at 7 PM. Watch the movie and then participate in the discussion of the book versus the movie. Books can be checked out prior to the screening at Manitowoc Public Library. Admission is FREE!!!
