Reid joins a cast which includes Oprah Winfrey in the role of Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon in the role of Mrs. Whatsit and Mindy Kaling in the role of Mrs. Who. The actors shared the official news on Twitter.
Duvernay has found her lead for A Wrinkle in Time. Storm Reid joins an already intriguing cast. I think this is not the most anticipated literary adaptation in the hopper.
Dallas City Council expressed concern that they might become havens for pornography, a concern rebutted by the point that the owners of the libraries’ collections tend to be curated by the residents on a daily basis—if someone leaves smut in the box, it’s not going to be there long.
Who kicked the Dallas City Council’s dog? Regulating little free libraries? Really that’s a problem that needs solving?
Matthew Weiner has lined up his next post–Mad Men gig. The Emmy-winning writer’s debut novel, Heather, the Totality, has been acquired by Little, Brown and Company with a planned release date of fall 2017. Described as “a dark fable set in contemporary Manhattan,” the book will track the lives of three individuals whose worlds collide in pursuit of a child.
Mad Men was an extremely literary show, and I am looking forward to seeing what Weiner does with this.
