End of the Road Theater’s first Movie Book Club will meet on October 7 at 7:00 p.m.!
The Movie Book Club meets every other month to watch a film based on a book, that you should read before coming to view the film. After the film we will discuss a variety of topics such as the differences between the movie and book, and what we liked or didn’t like about the movie compared to the book.
At the end of our first meeting on October 7 we will vote on which book to choose next, so come with ideas! But, to kick the club off, I chose The Dry by Jane Harper.
A small town hides big secrets in The Dry, an atmospheric, page-turning debut mystery by award-winning author Jane Harper.
After getting a note demanding his presence, Federal Agent Aaron Falk arrives in his hometown for the first time in decades to attend the funeral of his best friend, Luke. Twenty years ago, when Falk was accused of murder, Luke was his alibi. Falk and his father fled under a cloud of suspicion, saved from prosecution only because of Luke’s steadfast claim that the boys had been together at the time of the crime. But now more than one person knows they didn’t tell the truth back then, and Luke is dead.
Amid the worst drought in a century, Falk and the local detective question what really happened to Luke. As Falk reluctantly investigates to see if there’s more to Luke’s death than there seems to be, long-buried mysteries resurface, as do the lies that have haunted them. And Falk will find that small town have always hidden big secrets.
