Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, the actor, activist, and now author, has written her first children’s book, The Bench, illustrated by Caldecott Honor and Coretta Scott King Award Honor artist Christian Robinson, to be published on June 8. Inspired by her own family, the picture book depicts the special bond between father and son—as seen through a mother’s eyes.

The Bench gives readers a window into shared and enduring moments of peace, trust, and comfort between a diverse group of fathers and sons. The Duchess of Sussex said in a statement: “The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born. That poem became this story. Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy, and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens. My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”

James Ellroy will be releasing a true crime podcast series. And as you all hoped after reading the headline, yes, he WILL be narrating it.

The podcast is entitled James Ellroy’s Hollywood Death Trip. Evidently, it will dig into several of the most indelible and gory murders mid-century Los Angeles ever witnessed. The five-part series, produced by the group Audio Up, will be released in August, 2021. Audio Up said that listeners will be invited to “explore some of the darkest crimes in Los Angeles history with James Ellroy as their guide.” Ellroy, true to style, had this to say about his new project: “Summer ’21 is the soil-your-soul season of the Demon Dog…I’m a rapacious reader of my own work, and I’m here to rip and revitalize radio—and run it raw. And that’s no shivering shit, Daddy-O.”

Octavia E. Butler is the renowned author of numerous ground-breaking novels, including Kindred, Wild Seed, and Parable of the Sower​.


From Wikipedia: Born in Pasadena, California, Octavia Butler was raised by her widowed mother. Extremely shy as a child, Butler found an outlet at the library reading fantasy, and in writing. She began writing science fiction as a teenager. She attended community college during the Black Power movement, and while participating in a local writer’s workshop was encouraged to attend the Clarion Workshop, which focused on science fiction.

She soon sold her first stories and by the late 1970s had become sufficiently successful as an author that she was able to pursue writing full-time. Her books and short stories drew the favorable attention of the public and awards judges. She also taught writer’s workshops, and eventually relocated to Washington state. Butler died of a stroke at the age of 58. Her papers are held in the research collection of the Huntington Library. Read full Wiki page here

Contributing to the modernist avant-garde movement, James Joyce was an Irish novelist, short story writer, poet, teacher, and literary critic.

From Wikipedia: James Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer’s Odyssey are paralleled in a variety of literary styles, most famously stream of consciousness. Other well-known works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). His other writings include three books of poetry, a play, his published letters and occasional journalism.

Joyce was born in Dublin into a middle-class family. A brilliant student, he briefly attended the Christian Brothers-run O’Connell School before excelling at the Jesuit schools Clongowes and Belvedere, despite the chaotic family life imposed by his father’s unpredictable finances. He went on to attend University College Dublin… Read full page entry here
