The books that took the Oscars / The Christian Science Monitor – CSMonitor.com:

They may not have been clutching golden statuettes last night – or anywhere near Hollywood, for that matter – but there is a another set of Oscar winners this morning and they have as much reason to celebrate as do the stars you saw on the stage.

Marjorie Kehe tells the story behind the adaptation of each book into film.
