Descriptive Movie “The Book Thief” - April 30th RSVP - The Chicago Lighthouse (north) for People Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired

On Wednesday, April 30th make sure to mark your calendars to come out to the Chicago Lighthouse North and watch our Descriptive Movie “The Book Thief”.

Description narration conveys the key visual aspects of a film or television program by describing scenery, facial expressions, costumes during natural pauses in dialogue.

Based on the beloved best-selling book comes this profoundly moving story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany.  Although Liesel is illiterate when is adopted by a German couple (played by Academy,Tony and Emmy Award Winner Geoffrey Rush, and Emily Watson)... her adoptive father encourages her to learn to read.  Ultimately, the power of words helps Liesel and Max, a Jew hiding in the family's home, escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival.

Join us at 222 Waukegan Rd. in Glenview for another Descriptive Movie!

RSVP: Megan Frankenbach, Hospitality Associate; T: 847.510.6200 ormegan.frankenbach@chicagolighthouse.org
