Page to Screen Noir: Rear Window
March 28 @ 5:30 pm
Wednesday, March 28 at 1:30pm, the Norton Shores Library hosts Page to Screen Noir, where you can read a classic noir mystery each month and then watch the film it inspired. For March, participants will read “Rear Window” by Cornell Woolrich and then watch the 1944 movie!
Are hard-boiled detectives and mysterious women among your favorite fictional characters in a book or a movie? Combine your passion for both with March’s book, Rear Window, which is actually a short story by Cornell Woolrich. A laid-up magazine photographer witnesses a possible murder from his apartment window and decides to solve the crime himself. The movie was released in 1954, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starred Grace Kelly and James Stewart.
Page to Screen Noir includes an informal discussion of both formats, plus popcorn! You’ll need to bring your own soft drinks! Copies of the book are available at the Library while supplies last. This program, funded by the Friends of the Norton Shores Library, is free and open to the public ages 18 and up. For additional information, contact Alison Purgiel, lead librarian, at 231-780-8844 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
