Kite Runner Movie

We were SO EXCITED to see a FREE, private prescreening of the movie, The Kite Runner, on Monday, November 5 at the Barn Plaza Cinema in Doylestown. The lucky students who got to go were those which read the book by Khaled Hosseini and attended the after-school book discussions. The group was able to win the prescreening by joining the official movie blog and getting at least 100 members to join the blog. They’re looking forward to a follow-up discussion of the book vs the movie on Wednesday, November 14 after school in the library.
