What I’m reading . . .

I’m only a few chapters in to The Sisters from Hardscrabble Bay, but it’s sweet, smart, literary, and about sisters — which I’m lucky to know as one of the best bonds on earth. (Happy Birthday to my sister Kapri!) Learn more: The New York Times reviews the book here.

What I’m watching:

Bill Cunningham New York, a documentary of the New York Times’ legendary street style and society photographer, who lives the life of an ascetic in a tiny apartment above Carnegie Hall, now in his 80th year. The best movie I’ve seen all year, and even Tyson loved it. I will now be stalking Bill Cuningham on 57th and 5th when I’m in New York this month. Order it on Netflix or Cox On Demand.

Hey, Boo is the story of Harper Lee and To Kill A Mockingbird, one of my best-loved books, and our columnist Ed Montini told me that I’d love this film to distraction. He was right. Also on Netflix. Now, Tyson and I plan to re-read To Kill A Mockingbird together, and I will think of Mr. Kemmer, my 9th grade English teacher at Gilbert High, and try to remember all those great things he showed me in its pages. God bless English teachers.
