How Did a Children’s Book Become a Movie?
How did a 45-year-old juvenile, mystery, fiction novel “The House with a Clock in its Walls,” make it to the big screen in 2018? Find out during a special lecture presented by the author’s ex-wife.
The book, written in 1973 by the late John Bellairs, a longtime Haverhill resident, and illustrated by Edward Gorey, was made into a major feature film by Universal Studios. It was released this fall. It features actors Jack Black and Kate Blanchett.
Come hear Bellairs’s ex-wife Priscilla Bellairs, NECC Professor Emeritus of English, discuss the evolution of the book from book concept to movie creation on Thursday, November 8, in Lecture Hall A of the Spurk Building on the Haverhill campus from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
Light refreshments will be served.
