When author Wendelin Van Draanen set out to have a local screening for the movie version of her novel Flipped, she had no idea that the movie’s teenaged stars, Madeline Carroll (Julie Baker) and Callan McAuliffe (Bryce Loski) along with supporting cast members Israel Broussard and Stefanie Scott would want to make the trip to San Louis Obispo. But they did, where they were greeted by 200 children in the area who attended the screening this past Saturday, August 21st. The only way to get into the premiere was by winning raffled off fundraising tickets through the community’s schools or public libraries.
Flipped, opens in theaters everywhere August 27. Will you be seeing it?
