What do NBC Sports, Fox News, and the New York Post have in common? They all made an announcement that Michael Phelps will be participating in the 29th season of Shark Week. Sure, NBC sports and the New York Post don’t agree on whether or not he will be racing a shark, but it’s clear that the Discovery Channel wants to do something special.

With Shark Week almost a month away, there are plenty of things you can do to get ready:

  1. Discovery Channel has compiled a place where you can view video clips from last year, browse their Sharkopedia to learn new things and look at what it means to be a Shark Finbassador.
  2. Request a copy of the movie Jaws , Open Water, or The Shallows from the library catalog.
  3. Stream shark videos on Kanopy.
  4. Read Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand.
  5. Learn about shark cartilage on MedlinePlus.
  6. Watch one of our favorite clips from Jaws.
  7. Hop on Pinterest and make a shark craft. (If you do this, please share your creations via Twitter @TuftsHHSL )

 

The count down to Discovery Channel’s Shark-Week has begun!

Will you be watching shark week this year?

Is it just us or have a lot of books been making appearances on the big screen lately? Rolling Stone just released their 2017 Summer Movie Preview and we couldn’t help but notice that one of Stephen King’s books made the list. On August 4, 2017,  The Dark Tower, the first installment of an adaptation of King’s  Dark Tower series will hit theaters (Check out the trailer on Youtube). The film is technically a continuation of the novels, but will draw on elements from the The Gunslinger, the first book in the series. Borrow a copy from us and read the book first!

Interested in other movies that were books written by Stephen King? Check out his website for a complete movie list from A to Z.
