I just started the book the week before BlogHer.
I was invited to an advanced screening during the conference and I always try to read the book before I see the movie it inspired.
Unfortunately, due to a meeting I had with a brand I was late for the screening and didn’t go. I’m super bummed about it but trying to focus on the fact that I wanted to finish the book first anyway.
That aside. The Help opens in theaters TODAY!
If you are wondering what in the world I’m talking about, well, The Help is a look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship. The movie is set in the 1960’s and follows Skeeter, a southern society girl who dreams of becoming a writer. She get the idea of writing a book and decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families.
Here’s my favorite clip about the film.
