It’s that time of year again, the 85th Oscar Academy Awards are upon us. We here at Random House of Canada are going to be glued to the screen on Sunday night hoping that Life of Pi will take the prize in one of its many nominated categories. Life of Pi isn’t the only book that’s been adapted into an Oscar nominated film. Below are twenty books that were adapted into Oscar winning films.
Be sure to check out the TIFF. Books on Film Series running between February 11 – June 24. From their website,
“Now in its third season, Books on Film brings together book and film lovers to examine great cinema that began as outstanding literature. Host Eleanor Wachtel of CBC’s Writers and Company welcomes filmmakers, authors and experts to discuss the art of adaptation and the sometimes challenging passage from page to screen. The first 100 subscribers will receive a complimentary copy of each book featured, courtesy of Random House Canada.”
Single tickets are now available for all Books on Film events. Visit their website for additional information.
