Book and a Movie/“First Man”
“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” We don’t mean reading a book and seeing the movie based on said book. We’re talking explicitly about “First Man”—the biographical drama starring Ryan Gosling based on the novel “First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, by James R. Hansen—that explores the life of astronaut, Neil Armstrong,, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969. One huge question remains—which version does a better job of putting this tale before the public: the book or the movie? You’ll have the opportunity to discuss this oft-debated point if you attend Manitowoc Public Library’s “Book and a Movie” at Lakeshore Cinema—1118 Washington Street—on Monday, September 16 at 7 PM. Watch the movie and then participate in the discussion of the book versus the movie that follows. Books can be checked out prior to the screening at Manitowoc Public Library. Admission is FREE!!!
