Removed from classrooms in Miller, MO in 1980 for “making promiscuous sex look like fun.”

You say that like it’s a bad thing.

Alice recommends “The Golem and the Jinni” by Helene Wecker
A golem without a master and a jinni trapped in human form find themselves trying to make their way among the immigrant communities of 1890s New York. A wonderful tale of the trials and exhilarations of friendship between two vastly different creatures as well as a portrait of the immigrant experience through the eyes of being who are fundamentally not human.

Gregory Peck (Atticus Finch) and Mary Badham (Scout) on the set of To Kill A Mockingbird, 1962. The pair, who played father and daughter in the film, actually remained close and kept in contact for the rest of Gregory Peck’s life. He always called her Scout.

Amy spoke briefly with a gentleman at the book festival about Mary Badham and how well she played Scout. He flipped through a copy of To Kill a Mockingbird while Amy looked up Mary Badham on IMDB. She hasn’t starred in anything quite as famous as TKAM, but she was interviewed for the Hey, Boo documentary (clips of which are being included in the TKAM enhanced ebook). “Yup, she was a natural actor, that one. Scout through and through.”

Sometimes she narrates her actions inside her head in third-person. Does that make her a writer or a woman?

Green Girl, Kate Zambreno (via unforgettabledetritus)

Kate talked about the autobiographical nature of her fiction, on her writing, and I am just chewing on all of it.
