Re:Book Talk…and some Movie Talk

It’s Shira now. I am also a huge fan of Prep, though I haven’t bothered to read her other book. This one, however, sounds fantastic! Definitely an other-side-of-the-spectrum read once I finish Jessica Valenti’s new book He’s a Stud, She’s a Slut and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know. So far, SO good! It’s written with the same hard core chatty empowerment as Full Frontal Feminism. Hey, I even got my dad to pick it up…and he’s enjoying it!

Now onto the movie part of this post: I just saw Juno. I know I’m really late in the trend, but in my defense it came out during my Regents cram time. Anyways, it was FANTASTIC! It totally deserves the Screenplay award, which seems relevant as Morgan was one of the leaders of GWN’s recent Screenwriting workshop. Everything in popular culture seems to relate to writing.

  2. Yay Juno! I’m glad you liked it – I need to add it to my Netflix so I can see it again. And I should also pick up Jessica’s new book – I think it’s awesome that your dad it reading it!
