The Help Trailer and Prize Pack Giveaway #thehelpmovie


Have you heard all the buzz about the upcoming movie from Dreamworks Pictures The Help? It's coming to theaters on August 10th! I'm excited about this movie since I have heard so many good things about the book. (I hope to read it too once I have some free time)

For those of you who are going to read the book or already have and want something to discuss in your Book Club, here is a free Book Club Kit which includes some great recipes!

You can also follow the movie on their Facebook fan page


Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, “The Help” is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” is a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship.
