One of the year’s most anticipated new TV series is The Night Manager, which began airing April 19th on AMC. Already a hit in England, where it garnered critical acclaim and social media buzz, The Night Manager follows Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston), a former British soldier recruited by British intelligence to take down a pernicious arms dealer (played by Hugh Laurie).
Anythink York Street recently held a fan fiction writing contest that challenged teens to write an original story based on their favorite book, movie or TV show characters. There were nine entries, and each was outstanding. We are very proud of all our participants! After all was written and read, two stories rose to the top based on their quality of style, character building, world building, continuity and structure. The two winning stories happened to be by sisters! Congratulations to Elisabeth (10th grade) and Hannah C.
Enjoy a feast of dishes inspired by your favorite books. Feel free to dress fancy or come as you are. We will also be announcing the winners of our Fan Fiction contest. Appropriate for teens in grades 6-12. No registration required.
“The day after I was born my parents named me Resolute. Pa said it gave me an aspect of solemnity and perseverance, which are pretty things for a child with a sanguine humor. It was a good name for a girl, Ma always added, and there was nothing wrong with a girl being confident and ruddy. A boy could grow to 'make a name for himself,' but a girl needed a special one from birth.”
It's happening: the days are getting shorter, the air is getting colder and each new weather forecast brings the possibility of snow. Winter is upon us. For many Coloradans, this means it's time to break out the skis and snowboards, but for athletically challenged bookworms (read: nerds) like myself, winter provides a great excuse to curl up out of the cold and do one thing: read, read, read. So when many of my friends are headed to the slopes, I'm heading to the couch with a book, a hot beverage and a couple of dogs in tow.
