Open a book this minute and start reading. Don’t move until you’ve reached page fifty. Until you’ve buried your thoughts in print. Cover yourself with words. Wash yourself away. Dissolve. Carol Shields Republic of Love

Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge

If you’ve spent any time roaming the pages of this site, you’ll have figured out pretty quickly that I have admired and adored the works of Margaret Laurence since I was in high school.

This challenge is the perfect opportunity to revisit her wonderfully-accomplished novel, The Stone Angel, in conjunction with a viewing of the film.

So, I’ve signed up for Matinee: One Book, One Movie 

The Stone Angel: Book
“The Stone Angel”: Movie

And, for bonus points:

Jest of God: Book
“Rachel, Rachel”: Movie

Completed November 2010
