The Bluestocking Club Presents at Waterstones Tottenham Court Road
10 April, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Waterstones Tottenham Court Road will launch its film screenings in collaboration with The Bluestocking Club on Sunday 10 April, the start of London Book and Screen Week.
Inspired by the original Bluestockings of the eighteenth century, The Bluestocking Club merges book and film club with a programme of thought-provoking literary adaptations from period drama to film noir to sci-fi.
Season One will kick off with Valley of the Dolls, the eponymous adaptation of Jacqueline Susann’s 1967 box office hit. Turning 50 this year, the 1966 book went from multiple rejections to one of the bestsellers of the sixties.
Each screening will be introduced by an expert or super-fan and beautiful editions of the books and companion titles will be on sale. Along with brunch-style snacks and a literary-themed cocktail from the excellent bar staff at Waterstones TCR, there will be plenty of stimulation to ensure free-flowing discussion post-screening. A percentage from each ticket will be donated to the Refugee Support Network.
