Lights, Camera, Action! Books into Film

In celebration of the BAFTAs and the Oscars 2016, we have a display of books that have been made into film for you to browse and borrow.

Among the titles in this category are The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishigaro, I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith and the classic American Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, published in 1960.  

The film of the book starred Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch, a white liberal lawyer who stands up to bigotry and insists that a black man should be treated as an equal citizen under the law, fighting the racism that was prevalent in the Deep South of America at that time. Harper Lee, who didn't write another novel after To Kill A Mockingbird, died at the weekend, aged 89.
