A Random Assortment

~ From Hopkins: Books My Mother Gave Me.

~ Am I the last to know that the Fug Girls are working on what looks like it will be a must-read in such a corny way:
Creators of Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s first adult novel THE ROYAL WE, about a young American woman who spends a semester abroad in England and falls in love with the man of her dreams — who happens to be the future King of England, a tale loosely inspired by the real-life courtship and marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William, to Sara Weiss at Grand Central, by Brettne Bloom at Kneerim, Williams & Bloom (NA). Foreign rights: Danny Baror and Heather Baror; Dramatic Rights: Joe Veltre at Gersh.
 (In just the way that this terrible book was our favorite book in high school and Stearns and I made all our friends read it:

t’s 1964 and the young American Katie Hughes anticipates finding knowledge - and perhaps love - at Oxford University. She discovers possibilities in David MacKenzie, a young lecturer who carries on the legacy of his friend and mentor C.S. Lewis.But conflict also arises when she catches the eye of the dashing Lord Stuart Deverux. Kate’s heart is torn between the two men, and her convictions are challenged as her vulnerability draws her to a rendezvous she may regret.

~ Bill Cunningham's look at the Met Ball is the most charming (as always).

~ This article is the most ridiculous that I think I've ever read. Only in Philly.

~ Drew Faust on the Black Mass:
I plan to attend a Eucharistic Holy Hour and Benediction at St. Paul's Church on our campus on Monday evening in order to join others in reaffirming our respect for the Catholic faith at Harvard and to demonstrate that the most powerful response to offensive speech is not censorship, but reasoned discourse and robust dissent.
