Libraries show sci-fi thriller for Gulf Coast Reads event
In conjunction with the community-wide reading initiative, “Gulf Coast Reads: On the Same Page,” Fort Bend County Libraries will show a science-fiction movie thriller at three locations in October and November. The theme of the movie mirrors that of this year’s Gulf Coast Reads book selection, The Dog Stars, written by Peter Heller.
The movie will be shown at the following locations:
· October 5, 2:00 pm — Missouri City Branch Library, 1530 Texas Parkway
· October 26, 2:00 pm – First Colony Branch Library, 2121 Austin Parkway in Sugar Land
· November 23, 1:30 pm – Sugar Land Branch Library, 550 Eldridge
The movie to be featured is a science-fiction thriller starring Will Smith as Robert Neville, a scientist who was unable to stop the spread of a terrible man-made, incurable virus that decimated everyone in New York City and – perhaps — the world. This film is rated PG-13.
Fort Bend County Libraries joins a number of libraries, schools, colleges, museums, bookstores, and other organizations in the Gulf Coast region for the “Gulf Coast Reads: On the Same Page” reading initiative to restore reading to the center of American culture. Communities around the area are encouraged to come together to read and discuss a particular book.
The movie is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Sugar Land Branch Library at 281-238-2140, or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
