Some Saturday links to tickle your bookish fancy….
- Marvel at how amazing this fan-film about a young Voldemort looks. It is shockingly professional.
This is a non-commercial fan film, made by fans for fans, and is not endorsed by or associated with Warner Bros. or J.K. Rowling.
- Nod your head vigorously at this father’s response to his son needing written permission to read Fahrenheit 451.
I love this letter! What a wonderful way to introduce students to the theme of Fahrenheit 451 that books are so dangerous that the institutions of society — schools and parents — might be willing to team up against children to prevent them from reading one.
- Wonder why Today Will Be Different is getting adapted before Where’d You Go, Bernadette?
Movie star Julia Roberts is descending once more into the world of television, with Annapurna Television announcing that the Pretty Woman actress is set to star in and produce an adaptation of Maria Semple’s novel Today Will Be Different. Roberts will star in the series as Eleanor Flood, a woman whose plans to gently correct the course of her life get repeatedly hamstrung by outside events.
