Nothing makes me relax and feel more at home than reading a novel that takes place in the South. If you’re looking for your next beach read, or your next I-need-to-sit-inside-on-the-couch-because-it’s-hotter-than-ghost-peppers-outside read (🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️), hop over to the blog for a list of 17 must-read Southern novels! From Mississippi to North Carolina, romance to racism, institutionalized teenagers to wealthy Southern belles, these books cover a lot of territory! I’d also love to hear from you...what is your favorite Southern-based novel? I need to know what to add to my list!
#secretlifeofbees was magical & moving. So glad I was able to witness this testament to the enduring beauty & strength of black women. Great to see @vintagepopsoul and @iambrettgray who I’ve worked with in film grace the stage. And running into @susanbirkenhead who I worked with on the #jellyslastjam album was a special treat. #ilovemusicals ❤️
Meet Rhonda, (named after Ronda Rousey and the song Help Me Rhonda). • • • Sometimes a director wants an actor to have blood spilling out of her mouth, and onto her custom made dress, along with prop spit. Of course one would say “that’s impossible to clean out, especially for a two show day”, but @chrissypolhemus , @amanda_lionetti , and I got Rhonda through almost an entire run from tech to now(she still has three more performances to go, but she can do it). We were able to beat all the stains out of her, and keep her looking basically new, because our wardrobe crew is a crew of bosses, but I cannot wait to say goodbye to Rhonda this weekend. #secretlifeofbees
