Movie That Dare Not Speak Its Name!
Friday, April 26th
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Robbins Library
Community Room

Monthly movie for teens. We can't tell you what it is, but here are some clues and interesting trivia.

1- This movie is based off a Teen book where Charlie, the main character, is writing letters to an anonymous receiver.

2- The film stars Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Ezra Miller.  Paul Rudd is also part of the cast.

3- The characters perform the Rock Horror Picture Show live at screenings of the film.

4- Charlie's sister name is never mentioned in the book, but she is called Candice in the film.  In the film, all the name of the children in Charlie's family starts with a C.

5- In the book, the tunnel song was "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac, but in the movie it was "Heroes" by David Bowie. Writer/Director Stephen Chbosky, reportedly changed the song to something grander after seeing the footage of Emma Watson standing in the back of the truck. 

You can also call or come into the library for more information.

Information and trivia from IMDB.

Many people make the decision to become vegetarian when they are in their teens. What are some of the reasons to choose this way of eating?

Best of all we’ll try making a couple of vegetarian recipes and go home with more recipes and sources of information for those who want to know more.
