I just finished the book, "The Help,"
by Kathryn Stockett.
It is a fabulous book!
"The Help" is set in Jackson, Mississippi.
It is about a white woman and 3 black
maids, or "the help", and how life is
in the early 1960's.
It has about 524 pages.
Of course, I loved it. It's historical fiction!
I saw the movie a few years ago.
I will see the movie again, and maybe
read the book again.
I have to do both several times to remember them
and endear them in my heart!
Now, I'm currently reading "Nameless,"
written by my former student,
Jennifer Eldredge Jenkins.
I want to finish it and the sequel,
"Clanless," before her book launch party this fall.
