"Coraline" Book Discussion & Film Screening

"Coraline" Book Discussion & Film Screening

Friday, October 21, 2016 - 2:00pm to 4:30pm

A young girl walks through a secret door and discovers a parallel reality that is eerily similar to the life she already knows, yet deeply unsettling in a number of ways. We'll talk about Neil Gaiman's best-selling book (also available as a graphic novel), decorate some deliciously creepy button-eye cookies, and then check out the animated film. (PG, 2009, 100 minutes) Best for ages 8+.
