Literary Oscar nominees

If you like movies as much as we do around here, you’re probably aware that the 88th Academy Awards are taking place this Sunday. Did you know that seven of this year’s eight Best Picture nominees are based on books? Many of the best movies have been adapted from great (or even better) books, and you might be surprised at how many of these books we have in our collection. Danielle has put together a display of some of these titles, as well as a Listal of Academy Award-nominated films and the books they were based on.

 

Check these out and see what inspired the filmmakers to bring these stories to the silver screen!
