Book to Screen: J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy

Slated for the miniseries screen last year, J.K. Rowling’s first book post-Harry Potter, The Casual Vacancy, is about to make its debut on BBC1. Though an American airing has not been announced, HBO co-produced the series which features life in a small English town after the death of a significant resident. So, it’s fair to assume the story should be making its way stateside at some point. Many readers find film adaptations of beloved books to pale in comparison to the printed work, which makes us curious to hear from you. Watch the preview below and tell us what you think!
