In case you are not on facebook:

So glad we got to meet Jamie Tworkowski at The Twig Book Shop at The Historic Pearl this evening. We had another event to go to, but my daughter asked me to take her because his work means so much to her. I vaguely knew about the To Write Love On Her Arms. movement from the little she told me, but actually didn’t know he was the man behind it, neither did I know about his book, If You Feel Too Much: Thoughts on Things Found and Lost and Hoped For #Ifyoufeeltoomuch. I told her we were only going to stay until 6:30/6:45 because we had to get to a college reception that she was invited to attend. However, once he started talking and reading excerpts from his book, I was captivated. I can’t wait to read the book from cover to cover.

If you already read the original, there is now an expanded edition. To me, based on what he told us tonight, I think it completes his story. Be sure to follow Jamie Tworkowski to find out where he will be appearing next, then mark your calendar, cancel all your plans and GO!!!

Thank you Jamie for being there for my daughter and for all of us who are battling internal demons. Thank you for spreading God’s message of faith, love, and HOPE. – BMT

P.S. Jamie, I wasn’t even kidding, you should seriously look into doing stand-up comedy. Your comedic delivery is great! – BMT

Movie Review – “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”

3995091949_fef91b210b_bMy high school was invited to a special “invitation only” screening of Sony Screen Gems “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” directed by Burr Steers, on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at the Santikos Embassy Theater.  I read the Jane Austen book revised by Seth Graham Smith in Middle School, back when I enjoyed reading about zombies.  It is basically the “Pride and Prejudice” story with Zombies edited into it.  I didn’t really like the book, so I wasn’t expecting much from the movie. However, I was excited by the fact that it was by “invitation only” and my friends would be there, so I decided to go.  I also hoped for a chance that it would be better than the book. It wasn’t!   It was so absurd that my friends and I laughed through most of the movie. That was fun. So if you can handle zombie movies and want to have  good laugh, take a few friends and go see it.  – RCT

“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” will open some time in February 2016.  If you want find out more about the movie or to “zombify” yourself, go to ppz-movie.com.
