The Author, the Book and the Movie
Is the movie ever as good as the book? How do you compare a 2-hour film, with a more extended TV adaptation of a beloved novel? Do the works of some authors film much better than others?
In this new mini-series of lectures via Zoom I will discuss three new film or TV adaptations of popular novels, books that have all been filmed before. Learn about the author, discover more about the influence of the novel, see images from a great variety of past TV and movie productions, and receive a ‘further reading’ list after the talk.
I’d love you to join me. The talks are all planned for late Sunday afternoons (Sydney time) in October, so you can pour yourself a nice glass of wine, or a cup of tea, sit back, relax before dinner, and learn about 3 fascinating writers, 3 classic novels and 3 recent or coming film adaptations.
The Johnston Collection
I am presenting a series of lectures for the fabulous Johnston Collection in Melbourne. All are via Zoom, so anyone can enjoy them, even international readers (advertised times are AEST, Sydney, Melbourne).
