Event Details

The Des Moines Public Library is partnering with The Varsity Cinema for The Varsity Cinema Book Club.

Read the book. Watch the movie. Discuss them both!

This month, we will be reading the play The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare, and watching the film 10Things I Hate About You by Gil Junger. Limited copies of the book will be available for checkout at the Central Library Pick-up Window starting the first of the month.

The book and movie discussion will be held at The Varsity Cinema (1207 25th St, Des Moines, IA 50311) on May 29th at 8:30. This discussion is free and open to the public with no purchase necessary.  Note: there will be an admission charge if you would like to see the movie, but use promo code: DMPL to get a discounted ticket!  Please check https://varsitydesmoines.com/ for showtimes and details.
