Authors Found: Marjane Satrapi and Sue Monk Kidd

1. Discovered while blog hopping:

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, a graphic novel, a memoir of growing up in Iran, also made into an animated film with Catherine Deneuve's voice, among others. Also, Satrapi's EmbroideriesEmbroideries, individual stories by family members, in a book which readers think is too short.





2. Discovered at the library:


The Secret Life of BeesTraveling with Pomegranates: A Mother and Daughter Journey to the Sacred Places of Greece, Turkey, and FranceTraveling with Pomegranates: A Mother and Daughter Journey to the Sacred Places of Greece, Turkey, and France, by Sue Monk Kidd and Anne Kidd Taylor, the audio version, read by the authors.

That mother-daughter travel memoir made me want to read  The Secret Life of Bees, on audio, of course! I prefer to read thrillers and mysteries but to listen to introspective books. Then I'll also have to see this film.


That's all for now!
