Check out a movie, then check out a book

Thursday, October 20, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

The Austin Public Library hosts free movie screenings at various locations around town, often with special talks and events tied to them. This month’s lineup begins with a screening and discussion of the documentary GTFO, about discrimination in the videogame industry. The event, which is part of the library’s ongoing “Controversy & Conversation” series, will take place Thursday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m., at the Terrazas Branch library, 1105 E. Cesar Chavez St. On Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 6:30 p.m., the Yarborough Branch library (2200 Hancock Drive) will host a screening of Dear White People as part of the book club series “Read Watch Talk.” The screening will be followed by a discussion of both the movie and the book on which it is based. Screenings later in the month include two family films, Finding Dory and BFG, and the Austrian Amour Fou, part of the foreign film series.
