The Book Thief Comes to Life!
This New York Times article explains how the best-selling book - which was one of the biggest YA-adult stand-alone cross-over novels of all time - came to be adapted as a stage production. It is currently running as a young adult production at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theater through November 11. I wish I lived there so I could go see it!
And....it is also being adapted as a movie, though no word yet on when that might come out - sounds like they are just getting started.
Did you read The Book Thief? I loved it -you can check out my own review here. Are you lucky enough to live in the Chicago area? If so, will you go see it? I wish I could!
