How the "Outsiders" Movie came to be.

"Circulate This" - Stories from the School Library

Can one person make a difference? In 1980, Jo Ellen Misiakian (former librarian at Lone Star Secondary) and her students sent a copy of the Outsiders to Francis Ford Coppola along with the suggestion that the book would be an excellent movie, because she noticed that her boy readers loved it. As it turned out, the producer quite enjoyed the story and the project went ahead. Listen to her talk about the experience on the "circulate this" site.
