Fiction, Film and Fun: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Thursday, November 15, 2012  
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join CCAC's Jeanne Bergad to discuss The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson. Published posthumously in 2005 (following Larsson’s death by a heart attack in 2004), The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the first book in the Millennium Trilogy. The protagonist of the novel, disgraced Swedish journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired by an aging captain of industry to solve a forty year old mystery. He eventually joins forces with the title character, Lisbeth Salander, a genius computer investigator with a troubled past. David Fincher directed the 2011 motion picture starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. The film was nominated for a number of Academy Awards, including a Best Actress nomination for Mara, and it won the Oscar for Film Editing.
