Stories inspire plenty of fall movies

J.K. Rowling’s seven-title “Harry Potter” franchise (1997-2007) was loudly hailed as the vehicle that got young people to read. Among other books that accomplished the same thing, but on a smaller scale, were Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games” trilogy, Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” trilogy, Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series and James Dashner’s “Maze Runner” series. All have been translated to the big screen.
