In Pictures: Water for Elephants Screening

April 21, 2011 – The circus came to town

Or at least it seemed like it: The Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth was larger than life on the big screen, here in Chapel Hill at the Lumina Theater. The Thursday before the Friday premiere of the Water For Elephants movie (based on Sara Gruen‘s best-selling novel, Water for Elephants), Algonquin staff and members of the North Carolina literary community were treated to a preview screening of the much anticipated film.

Oh! What an event! I had a mini one in Singapore the day the movie opened here and took four very important viewers: my husband Dale, my cousin Ken, my neighbor Doyle and me.
We loved our screening…and the movie, especially Rosie.
