I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had been warned before I started it that it was poetry. It was wonderful! It tells about the author’s life and her start as an author. Beautifully written. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
This book has a lot of information. The previous books I have read about Ruby Bridges were very basic. I am working on finding out more information and this book helped a lot, even though it was directed at children. I would recommend this one over the other books about the desegregation of schools and how Ruby Bridges handled herself in the process.
The above linked article talks about new release romance books that were all recommended by romance novelists. I’ve read some. I own some. I have heard of some. It’s a beautiful list.
The above linked article talks about the lack of diversity in romance novels and the uproar that canceling the 2019 awards caused.
I am interested to know how this turns out. I hope that the diversity consultant they hire can help. Until today, I didn’t know there was such a thing as a diversity consultant, although it makes sense to me. You learn something new every day.
I saw Little Women with my cousin last week. I had seen the 1949 and the 1994 versions many times. The 2019 version was a little different. It made me want to read the book, to see how the story really goes, since it didn’t quite tell the same story as the other two movies.
The above linked articles talk about the 2019 version, and how it was made. One shows the inspiration and the other is an interview with the screenwriter and director. They are both rather interesting.
There was a 2018 version that came out, but I didn’t see it. It was modernized, so it kind of turned me away from wanting to see it.
