The beginning of the year means closing the curtain on the previous one and a time to honor the best of everything – including television and movies! Awards season looms ahead, with the Golden Globes kicking us off tomorrow (January 10th) and culminating with the Academy Awards on March 12th, 2023. Get your library and your readers red carpet ready to celebrate the winners with Page to Screen resources in NoveList and all its products.  

And the Winner is … How to Find Page to Screen Books  

NoveList makes it easy for you to keep track of all the movies and TV show adaptations coming out in the current year with our feature list, Page to Screen. You can access this handy list from the Quick Links in the header at the top of the page. The list tells you what platform and release date to expect.  

You can find all the titles that are earning buzz by being nominated at this year's awards! For example:  

  • All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Remarque: This bleak, sobering war story is nominated as Best Non-English language film. 
  • Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates: Ana de Armas is up for Best Actress in this surreal biographical fiction centered on a complex and flawed character.  
  • Women Talking by Miriam Toews: Sarah Polley's adaptation of this unconventional literary fiction novel, inspired by real events, is garnering praise across the board for acting, Adapted Screenplay, Best Score, and Best Director.  
  • She Said by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey: Carey Mulligan is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in this adaptation of Kantor and Twohey's behind-the-scenes account of their journalistic investigation to find women willing to go on the record against high-profile men like Harvey Weinstein. 
  • In with the Devil by James Keene: Released on Apple TV under the title Black Bird, this accessible and compelling true crime adaptation has garnered nominations for both Best Actor (Taron Edgerton) and Best Supporting Actor (Paul Walter Hauser) for a Limited Series, as well as overall Best Limited or Anthology Series for Television.  
  • Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer: Mormon Fundamentalism is on trial in this disturbing true crime adaptation nominated for both Best Actor (Andrew Garfield), Best Supporting Actress (Daisy Edgar-Jones), and Best Limited Series.  

As Time Goes By: Page to Screen Beyond This Year 

Page to Screen is also a searchable genre. Search GX Page to Screen to find thousands of books that once graced the screen, in one form or another, in any age category. Use the Refine Results column or a search you create to further limit book titles by intended audience, genre, time period, or location.   

Now that you have your list of Page to Screen books, what can you do with them?  

All That Jazz: Page to Screen Displays  

Create an eye-catching display of page to screen books. Supplement with nonfiction on film history (Try GX Arts and Entertainment AND SD Film history as a search combo). Pull the books from your shelves, arrange them on your display table, shelf, or endcap, and make a sign that makes it clear what patrons will find. PRO TIP: LibraryAware customers can find many sign templates by refining their search to Flyer-Signs.  

We’ve got some ideas for sign headlines:  

  • Watch it Now: Current Page to Screen adaptations  
  • And the winner is: Movies or TV shows nominated for awards  
  • Read it, then watch it!  
  • Binge-worthy reads  
  • Read it, stream it (You can even cross-promote with your streaming access service!)
