Book lovers and cinephiles alike love to argue the merits of film adaptations of beloved books. But who's more invested in this process than the book authors themselves? The Boston Book Festival kicks off BBF 2012 on Friday, October 26 at 7:30 pm at Old South Church, with a lively conversation among five authors whose book-length works have been turned into films and television shows. Buzz Bissinger (Friday Night Lights), Rachel Cohn (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist), Andre Dubus III (The House of Sand and Fog), Nick Flynn (Another Bullshit Night in Suck City/Being Flynn), and Daniel Handler (A Series of Unfortunate Events) are joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Globe, Wesley Morris.
