Berkeley Public Library invites you to participate in an examination of 127 Hours. In this film, rock climber Aron Ralston is trapped in an isolated canyon in Utah after a boulder crashes onto his arm. Over the next five days, Ralston examines his life and options for survival before taking extreme measures to rescue himself. 127 Hours is based on the harrowing true memoir Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Aron Ralston
Discussion group participants will read the book at home and then gather at 1:30 on Sunday, March 11 in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room at Berkeley’s Central Library, 2090 Kittredge Street to view the film together. After viewing the film, participants will discuss the book, the movie and the adaptation process.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, this free Book and Film program at the Central Library takes place every other month and offers adult and teen patrons the opportunity to discuss books, films and the art of adaptation. Participation is limited and registration is required. Please call (510) 981-6148 to register for one or more of these programs.
