Academy Award Nominees

Meghann Henry, Teen Outreach Librarian


The Oscars are happening this Sunday, so throw on your party clothes, whip up some snacks and host a watch party.  There are several movies nominated this year based on books including The Great Gatsby, Twelve Years a Slave, and my personal favorite The Book Thief (nominated for Best Original Score). The movie is based on Markus Zusak's critically acclaimed YA historical fiction novel that focuses on the journey of Liesel and her foster parents during World War II.  There is nothing like beautiful music to bring to life and heighten a beautiful story.
