Queen Sugar, by Natalie Baszile, started filming last Thursday in LA. They are moving to New Orleans in the next few days. Filming will take place there through late June/early July. Natalie doesn't know yet when it will air on the OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network). In case you didn't know, Natalie was our RBC author in December of 2014. All of us who had a chance to meet her are thrilled.
We've now got some more details for Litquake at the JCC in Palo Alto. Their keynote speaker/author is none other than Joyce Carol Oates. But besides her, there will be a bunch of other big-name authors. Get there if you can. It's heaven for us bibliophiles. (Sorry that there is overlap from my blog home page. But you can still read it.)
