If you've heard it once, you've heard it a million times—the book was better! There's nothing like debating the differences between a favorite book and its translation to the screen. But if you don't know your beloved series is coming out as a movie, or that the fun looking preview you saw was adapted from a book, how can you join the debate? The library is here to the rescue! Here we will be exploring the movie adaptations soon to hit your local theatres and give you the chance to read before you view.

Coming This June

On August 12th 2000, a Russian submarine with 118 men on board sank in the Barents Sea. Multiple ships nearby at the time reported hearing two separate explosions, yet a search for the submarine and its inhabitants did not begin for over six hours. Over the course of the next 4 days, the Russian Navy made multiple attempts to reach the ship to no avail. On the fifth day, Norwegian divers finally managed to open a hatch and begin the much delayed search for survivors. Robert Moore’s A Time to Die is the true account of this tragic accident.

A new take on Shakespeare’s classic tale as told by Ophelia, Hamlet’s tragic love.

After being exposed to the deadly radiation of a solar flare while on a mission in space, Jean Grey is imbued with the Phoenix Force, a primordial force of creation and destruction. Back on Earth, Jean struggles to resume her former life as both the Phoenix Force and a mysterious new friend attempt to manipulate her powers.
