Writing a book is one thing, adapting it for screen is a whole other level. Something of a rarity, Emma Jane Unsworth has been faced with that very task as her book Animals is about to become a major motion picture and will be screened nationwide from 2 August.
Emma is an experienced journalist and writer whose bylines include Guardian, Grazia and The Big Issue. Her novel Animals (Canongate) won a Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize 2015 and her next novel, Adults, will be published in 2020.
Join us at West Norwood Library and Cinema as Emma discusses her journey from page to picture with a special guest host.
Animals is the anticipated new comedy directed by Sophie Hyde starring Alia Shawkat and Holliday Grainger as 30-something friends nearing the end of their hedonistic party train. Riotously hilarious and very close to the bone for any woman who’s woken up with a hangover and a smile, Animals is a modern-day tale on the alchemy of female friendship.
