A Year of Anniversaries Part 4: 1977

2017 is an interesting year for pop culture anniversaries-popular movies, books, and events are celebrating 10, 50, or even 100 year anniversaries. Join Eckhart Public Library’s Charlie Chat as we explore some of these items. Click on any title or picture to find them within Eckhart Public Library or through Evergreen Indiana!


Another Tolkien Classic

Many have either read or watched J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, but few are aware that The Silmarillion was Tolkien’s original follow up to The Hobbit. It focused on the lore of the world, telling stories about the broader universe that contains Middle-earth and the events leading up to the rest of his stories. The five stories within the book were published posthumously by Tolkien’s son.

The Bridge to Terabithia

A book any child should read, The Bridge to Terabithia celebrates it’s 40th anniversary this year. Focusing on two lonely children who create a home away from home together, this book focuses on friendship, loss, and facing challenges. The film adaptation was released in 2007 and is just as touching.

Horror Classics

Two horror classics also happened to release in 1977 – Stephen King’s The Shining and Jay Anson’s The Amityville Horror. Both led to enticing films that still terrify and intrigue their viewers!

We know what you’re thinking…we forgot an entire franchise taking place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Don’t fret! Our next anniversary post will be focused solely on Star Wars!
