NEA Big Read Film Series: This Boy’s Life

October 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We will conclude our NEA Big Read Film series with the film adaption to our NEA Big Read book This Boy’s Life. 

Adapted from the book of the same title, This Boy’s Life (1993) stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Tobias Wolff, Robert De Niro as stepfather Dwight Hansen, and Ellen Barkin as Toby’s mother, Caroline.

This year’s NEA Big Read focuses on Tobias Wolff’s memoir This Boy’s Life. The NEA Big Read Film Series is intended to give community members additional perspectives to the themes and topics covered in This Boy’s Life. The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. For more information about the NEA Big Read, please contact eric@steinbeck.org
