Hello LBVJ's - it's Friday, and it's looking fabulous! This means it's time for a little FUN...a trivia contest PLUS a roundup of what to read, watch and eat!
Read - A decade ago, The Help by Kathryn Stockett was all the rage! Set in 1982 in Jackson, Mississippi, two black women working in white households and a young white reporter team up to expose the truth about what "the help" endure.
Together the three shake up the town, exposing ugly hatreds, crimes, and inequalities.
This debut novel was an instant bestseller and was made into a blockbuster movie.
Watch - No surprise here! It's a doubleheader of a page to screen - The Help - the book- followed by The Help - the movie - starring Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, and Emma Stone.
Eat - It's summertime and the grilling's easy but since I've been on a Ciao Italia kick ever since reading (and watching Under the Tuscan Sun - and yes, the book was better), so I'm suggesting Marinated Zucchini with Bow Ties
