Literary Sewing Circle: Inspiration of a different kind

Now a little bit of inspiration for this book from a different angle: some video viewing to give you a sense of how others have interpreted this book.

First off, let's take a look at how Something Wicked This Way Comes inspired a new musical just written and debuted:

Then you might want to listen to Ray Bradbury himself speak about the original 1983 film, and how he wrote the screenplay for his own novel, and his reaction to the initial viewing. Quite fascinating.

And then if you wish, you can watch the 1983 movie right here:

And if you're all full up of delight after all this you can still watch an hour long lecture Ray Bradbury gave on the art of writing. If you're thinking of doing NaNoWriMo this year, this is good prep!

I also hope you are all thinking about your reading. Be ready to share next Friday on our final discussion day for this novel! Our link up post for our projects will go live shortly after that final discussion post. Keep reading!

  1. The interviews are intriguing. Interestingly, I can't watch the whole film. It is a bit of a struggle for me. The book was so fast, the language was fabulous. I like films, but in this case, I think I prefer the book. It is just .... the words - so visual.
