Shrek, Legally Blonde, and Shawshank Redemption – what could these movies possibly have in common? Each of these international blockbusters were originally based on books. In this panel discussion, writers and filmmakers discuss the surprising movies that were based on books, and the work that goes into creating a movie adaptation that retains the essense of the original work.

This programme is co-presented with Sing Lit Station.
