4:00 p.m. Arcata Library, Teen Movie and Book Club, Bridge to Terabithia

Thursday, April 19, 2018

The film this month is Bridge to Terabithia, based on the book by Katherine Patterson. Magic comes into Jess's somewhat dismal life when a new girl arrives at school. She becomes a friend, and the two children create their own fantasy kingdom. They use the powers of imagination and friendship to grow strong and capable, offset the effects of school bullies and change their world. And then tragedy strikes. Is the magic gone forever, and how will Jess survive? This film is praised as a faithful adaptation of the award-winning book.

A pre-teen boy and girl walk through an antlered gate into a world of magic.
