Adriana Trigiani’s bestselling novel Big Stone Gap was turned it into a feature film in 2014, but its run here in Lackawanna County was short.
Now, thanks to Ms. Trigiani’s generosity, local fans will get another chance to see the romantic comedy starring Naomi Judd, Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Wilson, and Jenna Elfman. The author, who also directed the film, offered it to the Lackawanna County Library System for an exclusive one-time showing.
Trigiani books are popular with local readers. In 2013, her novel, The Queen of the Big Time, was chosen for On the Same Page in Lackawanna County, and Ms. Trigiani was part of the Library Lecture Series. The Queen of the Big Time is set in Roseto, Pennsylvania, a Northampton County borough less than an hour from Scranton by car, and the place where Ms. Trigiani’s family once lived.
As a bonus for those attending the movie, Ms. Trigiani will address the audience and answer questions via Skype from her home in New York City.
Tickets are free and are available online or at any Lackawanna County Library.
