Lost & Found: Snowy Day

Links, media, and random ideas that we recommend from the past week.

  • WATCH THIS: The film, “Sins of the Mother,” based on Carleen Brice’s novel, Orange Mint and Honey, will air this Sunday, February 21, at 8 p.m. ET on the Lifetime Network. We are so proud of Carleen and can’t wait to see the movie, starring Jill Scott. Carleen also posted this moving personal account on the experience of seeing her characters come to life on screen.
  • READ THIS: Zetta Elliott’s book, A Wish After Midnight, is now available! Congratulations to Zetta on her beautiful book’s relaunch. After seeing this impressive review, I am more excited than ever to read about young Gemma Colon (via the Kindle edition on my iPhone, which is awesome).
  • FOLLOW THIS: We’ve got a Facebook Page now. It’s a nice way to stay updated if you are on Facebook or if you don’t regularly use other blog subscription features.

And finally, last Friday we were treated to a remarkable snowfall in The Bottom. My family and I had snowball fights and the little one (pictured above) built her first snowman as we re-enacted scenes from Ezra Jack Keats’ The Snowy Day. Here’s hoping that the rest of you who experienced the snow also took the time to find a stick just right for smacking a snow-covered tree.

We ♥ Carleen Brice
