FROM PAGE TO SCREEN: The Lightning Thief

October 3rd and 17th | November 7th and 21st | 2-4pm


In partnership with Spells Writing Lab, the Bride presents a unique book and film discussion series for kids and teens featuring The Lightning Thief, the first book in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. Participants are asked to read the novel during the course of the two-month series and will watch the film during one of the sessions. Guided by Spells workshop leaders, the group will discuss the artistic process involved with bringing the pages of a novel to life on the silver screen and use The Lightning Thief as a jumping off point for their own writing projects. Did the filmmakers do a good job of translating the written word to the screen? That’s for you to decide—join the conversation, share your opinion!
