Join us at for the American Center’s Book Club for a discussion of some of Stephen King’s most well-known stories. Stephen King Goes to the Movies is a collection of five of his favorite short stories, which went on to become major motion pictures. The Shawshank Redemption (based on the novella “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption”) was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and best actor for Morgan Freeman. 1408 starred John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson and was a huge box office success in 2007. The short story “Children of the Corn” was adapted into the popular Children of the Corn film. The Mangler was inspired by King’s loathing for laundry machines from his own experience working in a laundromat. Hearts in Atlantis (based on “Low Men in Yellow Coats,” the first part of the novel Hearts in Atlantis) starred Anthony Hopkins.
