Book into Movie

ItalicOne of the best books I have ever read is The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. Typically, I am disappointed with books made into movies but The Namesake directed by, Mira Nair is absolutely the exception to the rule.

Last week I attended a program at Columbia College Chicago with my dear reader friend, JoAnne. The final speaker in the program, Conversations in the Arts: Media Arts in the 21st Century, was writer and director, Mira Nair. What a terrific evening! Funny, well educated, read and traveled, the energy that surrounds this woman stayed with me long into the following days.

If you haven't read this book, do. When you are done rent the movie, order in great Indian food and watch a book. I hope you love it as much as I did.

Also, I hope you enjoy some really awesome Indian food, too.
