Books into Film: Coraline
This delightful movie tells the story of Coraline, based on the title character of Neil Gaiman’s 2002 novella for young adult readers. Coraline is a fearless little girl who, despite the warnings of her neighbors, goes through a hidden doorway and enters a nearly identical world, where her Other Mother and Other Father replicas of her real parents with button eyes, inhabit a house just like her own. Henry Selik directed the 2009 film version, which features stop-motion animation. This movie is definitely for older kids ages 7 and up.

When: February 28 at 6:30pm
Where: Brooklyn Central Library, Dweck Center
