Literary News You Can Use

It looks like our prayers for more good movies based on good books are coming true.  Monday morning author Tayari Jones (@tayari) tweeted about being followed by @LeavingATLmovie.  She knew the option for her book, Leaving Atlanta, had been sold, but was unsure of where they were in the process.  I'm excited to announce that they're now casting for the movie version of this wonderful book.  First Sins of the Mother (Orange Mint Honey) and now this!

I'm always on the hunt for good books.  Here are a few coming our way soon.
