The Help

Paula Walters - Thursday, September 08, 2011

The Help by Kathryn Stockett has been a popular book club selection since it was first published.  Many book groups are still patiently waiting their turn to receive the book.  Book club copies are still scheduled out to groups until November 2012!!  

The Help takes place in Mississippi in1962.  It is the story of three women who form a friendship.  Skeeter is from a well to do Mississippi family.  She is in her early 20’s and has just returned home after college graduation.  All of her friends are married, they have children, and all are from well to do families.  These young women grew up with black maids, and each now has a black maid taking care of her home and family.  Skeeter gets together with her friends, meeting at their homes, watching how they treat their maids, and she does not like what she sees.  She becomes friends with one of the maids named Aibileen, and talks her into telling her story, so that Skeeter can write a book about “the help”.  Eventually another black maid named Minnie comes forward to tell her story.  Eventually many more come forward.  Remember this is 1962 a scary time for these black women to come forward and tell their stories. Of course there is a lot more to the book, but I do not want to ruin it for anyone who has not read the book.

It is a wonderful book to read but also it was a wonderful book to make into a movie.  The movie was released this summer.  I was very excited to see it.  I was so excited that I called a friend wondering if she had read the book.  She had not.  I happen to own a copy, and lent it to her so she could read it before we saw the movie.  As all readers know the movie is never as good as the book, but I have to say I am not alone in thinking this movie is excellent and it followed the book. Comments I am hearing are : we loved it, the screen play was very accurate, casting was great, and one of the book clubs that went together to see it thought the movie was better then the book!!  If you have not read The Help, I recommend that you do and also go see the movie with your best friends.

Liverpool to make swap swoop for Tottenham winger in January?

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are interested in Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon, and will offer £7m plus out of favor winger Jermaine Pennant for Lennon in January.Lennon has gotten off to a very good start this season, and he was recently the subject of reported interest from Real Madrid.Liverpool already have no shortage of players to occupy the flanks right now, so one might question why Lennon would even consider going from somewhere hes in the starting XI almost every time out to being a part of a rotation. Well, besides the ability to win the Premier League and Champions League, Pennant is likely on his way out of Anfield before long, and Ryan Babel could soon follow.Rafa Benitezs rotation has room for many, but it hasnt had much room for Pennant, whos made only four appearances this season. At the present, hes not worth the £6.7m that Liverpool paid for him in 2006, but considering that Harry Redknapp has previously had an interest in him, Redknapp could consider a deal that includes Pennant. However, if I was Redknapp, Id be thinking more Ryan Babel than Pennant if this deal was going to be a reality for both sides. Sure, the amount of cash hed likely receive in the deal would be less, but if Babel unleashes his potential, he could be an immediate fixture in Tottenhams starting lineup. Whether or not Benitez would consider offloading Babel in January is another story, but that might be the only way he can get Lennon.

question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting
my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
