Who Told it Best? Book vs. Film: Fried Green Tomatoes
If you know, you know! Read the book Fried Green Tomatoes At the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg in advance, and then come down to VisArt Video to watch the 1991 adaptation, Fried Green Tomatoes, directed by Jon Avnet, starring Kathy Bates, Jessica Tandy, Mary Stuart Masterson, Mary-Louise Parker, Cicely Tyson, and Chris O’Donnell. Then, we’ll duke it out to decide who told it best: the book or the film! Popcorn provided. Boxing gloves not included.
This event is made possible with a partnership with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and VisArt Video
