We all know about the book. But what about the new movie? Is it children’s fable or popcorn flick? Now that the second of the planned trilogy of films for J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit has been released, are the movies true to the beloved books, or are they something else entirely? How does this adaptation compare to that of the beloved Lord of the Rings trilogy?
If you’ve never come to one of Sacramento Public Library’s online hangouts, check out the Game of Thrones hangout from last spring.
The Hobbit is one of dozens of titles that we offer through our Book Club in a Box program. Check out 15 copies, packaged together with discussion materials.
The Ella K. McClatchy Library also hosts a Tolkien Book Club on the second Saturday of each month from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. They club is currently reading The Hobbit. The next two meetings are January 11 and February 8.
