Any more comments? What did you think?
I’ll try to answer the questions that cropped up in your comments a little later today. Overall I’m relieved that so many readers/viewers were willing to give the film a chance and not have to be a word-by-word retelling of the book.
Last night was the fourth time I’d seen the whole thing. The first time was with a roomful of librarians in Colorado. I couldn’t stop crying at the end. I still cry in the scene when she shows Mr. Freeman her closet. That’s my favorite part. You want to know what made me goofy excited last night? Seeing it listed in the cable guide. I thought “Wow, it is really real!” Dumb, I know, but amusing.
I hope you caught the Public Service Announcement at the end. Does anyone know how I can get a copy and post it on my website?
Thanks to all of you for supporting SPEAK and my other books. I consider myself blessed beyond reason. Now I will eat breakfast and get back to work to the next one!!!
