Anna Todd Teams Up With Free2Luv to Create a New Original Story, FREEAnna Todd Teams Up With Free2Luv to Create a New Original Story, FREE
by BWW News Desk - Mar 18, 2015

Anna Todd, best-selling author of the fabulously successful After series with over 1 billion reads to date, has begun serializing 'Free,' a spin off story featuring Riley and Lillian's love story to bring awareness to youth empowerment organization, Free2Luv. Riley and Lillian are opposites, just like every main character set in a romance novel, but they are different. Their LGBT love story addresses the struggles and rewards of being free to love. Anna Todd, a Celebrity Ambassador for Free2Luv, has created this story to support the LGBTQ community and advocacy that Free2Luv represents. 'Everyone should be free to love whomever they choose. That's the message of 'Free,' my latest Wattpad story,' said Anna Todd. 'I'm inspired by the mission of Free2Luv; they are giving a voice to people who need it and they are so passionate about what they stand for. I see the way teens think and I spend a lot of my time engaging with them and Free2Luv's voice is needed so much right now. I'm incredibly honoured to be one of their Ambassadors. It's an amazing feeling to be part of an organization that helps so many young people.' 'We are very excited about this partnership with Anna Todd. Her voice is relevant to teens today and her reach is enormous. We are thrilled to be able to share this love story with youth who may be questioning their own sexuality or searching for a place to fit in. Our goal is to create a safe and inclusive environment that offers teens a creative outlet for their myriad of emotions. They can share their stories, connect with other youth having similar experiences and know that they are not alone,' says Co-Founder and President of Free2Luv, Tonya Sandis. The LGBT community is no stranger to bullying with 9 out of 10 LGBT students experiencing harassment at school and online and 20% of high school students saying they have seriously considered suicide. Free2Luv believes this epidemic needs to stop. Anna Todd and Free2Luv have created 'Free' to help bring awareness to this epidemic. Their collective goal is to raise self-esteem and re-instill hope in our youth so that no young person is left feeling alone, unwanted, or less than perfect just the way they are. 'Free' is currently being serialized on Wattpad, the world's largest community of readers and writers. The first two chapters of 'Free' have been released at http://www.wattpad.com/user/imaginator1D and the story already has over 112,000 reads and has been translated by fans in Arabic, French, German, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Italian and Dutch. You can join the movement and stand up to bullying with Free2Luv. Visit http://free2luv.org and learn how you can be an agent for change. If you'd like more information or to schedule an interview with Free2Luv, please contact Lilly at 206.397.4724, email info@free2luv.org or visit us at www.free2luv.org.

by Don Grigware - Feb 9, 2015

It all started simply enough when Dick Cavett invited author/critic Mary McCarthy on his PBS talk show on January 25, 1980. What resulted from a completely unplanned remark was one of the biggest literary feuds in history. McCarthy, when asked by Cavett to mention questionable authors at the time, is quoted as responding about the dishonesty of Lillian Hellman 'Every word she writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the'. Hellman just happened to be watching the TV program and proceeded to sue McCarthy, Cavett and the network for over a million dollars. (more...)

by Courtney Henley - Feb 16, 2015

All right, guys, it's confession time: there was a time, when I was but a young lass, that I wanted desperately to be Keira Knightley. She was in Pirates of the Caribbean (which I may or may not be able to quote from beginning to end), she was ridiculously talented, she wasn't that much older than me, and she was British (which, for some strange reason, I always wanted to be when I was young). Then, in 2006, she was nominated for an Academy Award for her role of Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice, and that made her even more awesome. As I got older, I began to recognize how good she actually was in all of those movies - a thought which ran through my mind once again when I saw her performance in The Imitation Game, for which she received her second Oscar nomination.
