The University of Utah Department of English, Tanner Humanities Center, and The City Library invite you to a screening of Wonder Boys, based on Michael Chabon's novel of the same name. The film is rated R.

"Grady (Michael Douglas) is a 50-ish English professor who hasn't had a thing published in years—not since he wrote his award winning "Great American Novel" 7 years ago. This weekend proves even worse than he could imagine as he finds himself reeling from one misadventure to another in the company of a new wonder boy author."

Assistant Professor Jeremy Rosen will provide an introduction and a Q&A following the film.

This screening is a precursor to author Michael Chabon's (Wonder Boys", Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay) and Zadie Smith's (White Teeth, Swing Time) visit on Thursday, October 19, 7pm at the Libby Gardner Concert Hall.
