Join webcast with 'Thief' author and director
The Wood County District Public Library will live-stream a webcast conversation between the author and director of "The Book Thief" on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Programming Room of the Children's Place.
To celebrate the release of "The Book Thief" motion picture, Markus Zusak and Brian Percival will come together to discuss the process of bringing this novel to the big screen.
Percival is an award-winning British film director, most recently for the BBC series "Downton Abbey."
Their moderated discussion will include a showing of the trailer and clips from the movie. The event will be held in New York City at the School of Visual Arts and is organized by Twentieth Century Fox, Fox 2000 Pictures and Random House; the live streaming is available to schools and libraries.
The novel by Australian author Zusak tells the story of one German family who clandestinely defies Hitler and Nazism through a series of large and small acts, including hiding a Jew, which tests their conscience and their courage.
Published in 2005, the "The Book Thief" spent more than 230 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
The book was required summer reading for this year's freshman Bowling Green High School Honors English class.
The movie opens in theaters on Nov. 15. It stars Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and newcomer, Sophie N√©lisse.
