Based on the Book

This week's Based on the book, Forrest Gump by Winston Groom, is a reader request who commented "I just finished reading the book, and while the movie captured the spirit of the story, that Alabama boy went through a lot more than what was put on the screen."

Now, I'm sure most of us are familiar with this character, who was portrayed so well by Tom Hanks in the 1994 Academy Award winning Spielberg film, and I would strongly encourage those who enjoy the movie to stop in and check out the book. And if you haven't seen the movie, well, you are really missing out. We have both the movie and the novel available for checkout.

Here's an interview with Tom Hanks on portraying Forrest Gump:
