One Island One Book starts tomorrow!

One Island One Book officially starts tomorrow -- Wednesday, March 3 -- with a free screening of the film version of "To Have and Have Not" at 5 p.m. in the Library Auditorium, 700 Fleming St.

The movie version has a great pedigree -- it stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall and William Faulkner wrote the script -- but it does differ significantly from the novel on which it's based. For one thing Martinique is substituted for Cuba. For another, all the stuff about the social structure of Key West is gone. But it's still a great movie -- and the only movie that includes two Nobel Prize winners (Faulkner and our man Ernest Hemingway). The movie is free and you do not have to have a library card to attend.
