Interesting note: Sue Monk Kidd is from Georgia and currently lives somewhere in Charleston. For a while, though, she resided in the humble little town of Anderson, SC.

The Secret Life of Bees.
I meant to write about what I had planned today (see entry below), but I ran across this trailer. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd is an amazing book and I can't wait to see the movie. For those of you that don't know, Brett is studying honeybees for his master's work, and will be continuing that work at the PhD level at Georgia. Anyways, Brett told me that recently he met the beekeeper that worked on the set of the movie. The movie looks like it will be good- the casting seems right-on, anyways, but I still recommend that you read the book first. 9 times out of 10 the book is better (in my humble opinion, of course.) The Southern Gothic style has always been one of my favorites.
