Dive into adventure with Book-It’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. From the visionary novel by Jules Verne comes the iconic story of a journey into strange environs, the quest for scientific knowledge, and, of course, a giant squid. Considered one of the greatest adventure books of all time, 20,000 Leagues asks us what will become of humanity as technology allows us to explore—and exploit—the natural world. This world premiere script from Eddie DeHais thrillingly embraces the Book-It Style of active narrative to reveal the urgency, humor, and prescience of Verne’s reckoning with the same topics we face today.
