Miscellaneous Stuff

I saw a trailer for Me Before You.  It looks really good.  I still want everybody to read the book.  But if you prefer movies to books (or if you've already read the book), it will be hitting the theaters in June.

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.)


  1. I don't think I can handle Me Before You in the theater. The book made me sob.

    1. I don't disagree with you. The book was so darn good. But I want to see it anyway. I'm willing to lose my man card for a couple of hours.

  2. This is such exciting news about LitQuake Palo Alto! Hope to see you there!

  3. If you are going, then I will definitely see you there!
