90-Second Newbery Film Festival - Westing Style

The first trimester Middle School Library Club had their last club meeting on Friday.  There was a film screening for their 90-Second Newbery Film entry, watched by friends and the Debate club.

The club spent the entire trimester working on their film entry, turning the very complicated plot of The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin, into a minute and a half long movie.  It was no easy task and the result is a rollicking and hilarious (if very confusing) rendition of the novel.

The film has been submitted into the festival and now the students will wait to see if it is featured during the New York City screening.

If anyone is interested in the library club for next year, we will be working on another entry, book to be determined!
