Masterpiece Adapts Book & Film Club Discussion Guides
For its 40th anniversary, Masterpiece has collected more than 25 book-to-film discussion guides from its Book & Film Club archives for such works as Jane Eyre, The Diary of Anne Frank and Dr. Zhivago. The guides are sorted by title or author and provide discussion questions, author biographies, background essays, interviews, activities--and even recipes. They can be found at pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/bookclub/guides.html.
Agatha Christie is the next author to be added to the Masterpiece Book & Film Club. Book-to-film discussion material for Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple will available in June at pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/bookclub/index.html.
