Anyone who knows me, knows that I love talking about books or films. And, my absolute favorite thing to do is discuss movies based on books. Last year I was proud to have pitched a book to film event to the Orcas Island Lit Fest, and with help from the Orcas Island Film Fest, we built an amazing panel with actress Miranda Otto (Lord of The Rings, Homeland, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Thin Red Line) screenwriter Bryan Sipe (The Choice, Demolition Man), Pulitzer-winner Gilbert King (Devil in the Grove) and novelist Willy Vlautin (Motel Life, Don’t Skip Out on Me).
This year I’ll be part of a new panel, WORDS INTO PICTURE: ADAPTING LITERARY WORKS FOR FILM & TV, at The Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP).
If you, too, are traveling to Portland, Oregon for this event, I would love to meet you. Let’s talk books & movies!
