Harriet The Spy: Release Date, Cast And More

"Harriet the Spy" made waves as the first theatrical movie produced by Nickelodeon. But the film adaptation took a lot of liberties with the original 1964 novel by Louise Fitzhugh. However, it looks like a new animated series adaptation from Apple TV+ is being a little more loyal to the source material, giving off the vibe of an animated production from the 1990s, with a mix of Wes Anderson and the graphic novels on which "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" was based. Find out everything we know about...

Serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer targeted and killed young people to satiate their violent impulses. Claims regard...

18 Black-led Horror Movies as Terrifying as 'Candyman'

Nostalgia for the ‘90s is big right now, so it’s probably not a huge surprise Candyman is coming back. The love-lorn killer with the haunting bass voice and hook hand never had quite the box office cred of a Freddy, Jason, or Michael Myers, but Tony Todd’s performance—and his signature vocal rasp—made him an instant…Read more...

My 9 favourite career and business books for people-pleasers, perfectionists and overthinkers

As a recovering people-pleaser, perfectionist and overthinker, atypical careers and business books often leave me feeling cold and drained. They push heavily on productivity, morning routines, hustling and basically performing at society’s idea of what ‘success’ means. These themes drive the very things that lead to the anxiety-driven behaviour and thinking of the habits I’m recovering from. They encourage you to over-give and to continue being over-responsible and obedient. There’s a lot of fol...

what i'm reading: sometimes you have to lie: the life and times of louise fitzhugh, renegade author of harriet the spy

Until very recently, I didn't know anything about Louise Fitzhugh and had not thought about her at all.  Of course, as a child I read and loved Harriet the Spy, Fitzhugh's iconic and groundbreaking children's book. For a good portion of my life, I dreamed of writing a similar book. Many years ago, when I started writing serial fiction for a children's magazine, I bought a handful of tween books to re-read, and Harriet was among them. But I knew nothing about its author. On my birthday la...

beverly cleary, rest in peace, and thank you

Beverly Cleary, who died last week at the astounding age of 104, was a pivotal figure in the world of children's literature. Her books are treasures; her influence can scarcely be measured.Cleary was one of the first authors to feature young characters who were realistically imperfect. If she was not the first, then certainly she was the first popular, widely read writer who, as The Atlantic put it, "saw children as they are". Before Henry Huggins and Ramona, before Otis and Ellen and Ralph S. ...

How this Redlands professor unlocked the mysteries of ‘Harriet the Spy’ and its author

When the children’s novel “Harriet the Spy” arrived in 1964, Leslie Brody was an 11-year-old on Long Island. That was just a short trip to the Upper East Side neighborhood of the fictional 11-year-old spy and writer Harriet M. Welsch. Yet despite their geographic proximity and shared love of tomato sandwiches on white bread, Brody didn’t discover Harriet and the beloved classic by author and illustrator Louise Fitzhugh until 1988 when the writer’s literary estate hired her to adapt the book for ...

Former NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha talks challenges of acting ahead of new film ‘Sylvie’s Love’

Nnamdi Asomugha was an All-Pro NFL defensive back in 2009 when he walked in to shoot a Nike commercial for director Peter Berg. But when he walked out that day, his entire future had changed.  “Being an actor or in the movie business was never a dream of mine,” says Asomugha, who thought his post-retirement career would be a comfortable gig as an NFL analyst. But Berg saw something in him and told him he should take it seriously, even casting him in an episode of “ Friday Night Lights .”...

The Not-So-Hidden Literary Heritage Of Harriet The Spy

An ode to Dorothy Sayers’ Harriet Vane? You bet. But also, “Harriet is a writer devoted to routine. She loves her tomato sandwiches, her egg creams, and her spy route and notebook both because they give her a lot of pleasure and because they ground her. Like a working artist, she doesn’t want to think about the mundane details. That’s what a parent—and later, a partner—is for: somebody who can deal with practical things so an artist doesn’t have to. When Harriet’s routines are disrupted, all he...
