August is shaping up to be a big month for movie releases based on books. The eagerly awaited adaptation of The Help by Kathryn Stockett hits theaters on August 10th --- and I am seeing it with a few other staffers on Thursday; I’m sure many of you feel the same way. By the way, our intern declined to join as she had not yet read the book, which I think means "read the book first" skills have properly been impressed upon her! The Help was voted the top discussion book of the past 10 years in last year’s 10th Anniversary Contest and has been a fixture on the bestseller lists since its release in February 2009. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on the film version, and please let me know if your group is doing anything special to celebrate its release.
