CUTTING FOR STONE Moves Closer to Screen

It’s been a year since the news that Abraham Verghese’s long running best seller Cutting for Stone had been optioned for a movie.

Yesterday, news arrived that Danish director Susanne Bier (In A Better World, winner of an Oscar last year for Best Foreign Language Film )  has been signed for the adaptation. There’s no start date yet and Bier has another movie in the queue, but Playlist notes that, after releasing six films in the last ten years, Bier “shows no signs of slowing down.”

Librarians embraced the book, beginning with Verghese’s appearance at ALA Midwinter 2009 in Denver, where he spoke at the Breakfast and BookTalk sponsored by the AAP Trade Libraries Committee.
