Movie Readalikes

Read This, Watch That: #Oscars2014 Edition

Now that I’ve fully recovered from my Sunday Oscar party, I’d like to point your attention to some Best Picture readalikes, provided by our fantastic auxiliary librarian, Shannon:

Many of this year’s best picture nominations were based off of non-fiction titles, including American Hustle (The Sting Man), Captain Phillips (A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea) and 12 Years a Slave. Yet another reminder that for every great movie, you don’t have to look far for a great book!

In this edition of Read This, Watch That, we’ve put together some materials inspired by a few of this year’s best picture nominations. Enjoy!
