Next week, a scene from a new production titled Something Borrowed will be filmed in the Crea reading room on the second floor of the Library. The film, directed by Luke Greenfield and starring Kate Hudson, is based on the Emily Griffin debut novel of the same name. The story is about a young, New York lawyer who has a drunken, one night fling with her best friend’s fiance (who is also a lawyer) and ends up falling in love with him. The N.Y. Times Booklist gave it a starred review and called it a compelling read in the crowed genre of “chick lit.” Publishers Weekly was not as generous but still advised that it was an enjoyable “beach read.”
On May 27th, the film crew will be working in the Crea reading room and prepping it for filming on the 28th. The room will be closed on both May 27th and May 28th. Please plan to make yourselves comfortable in other areas of the library. We are not sure if Ms. Hudson will be in the scene or not – so keep your eyes peeled!
