Celebrities Who Are Fans of Mister Rogers

It’s hard not to love Mister Rogers. He taught us how to imagine, how to be a good neighbor, and, without us even noticing it, how to be a kind people. The lessons we learned from this wonderful man have stuck with us through adulthood. And yes, we did cry all the way through Won’t You Be My Neighbor? last year. We even published a book about him, pairing Fred Rogers own songwriting with beautiful illustrations by Luke Flowers: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. But we’re not the only Mister Rogers fans out there. Many many celebrities have expressed their love for the man. And who could blame them?

Books That Would Help Game of Thrones Characters Get Through the Final Season Alive

The final season of Game of Thrones is nearly here, and fans are waiting to find out which of the remaining faces in Westeros will actually make it through the entire series alive, which is no easy feat in a world as violent as Westeros! So far, the ones still standing seem to have a solid handle on how to play the game, but everyone could use a little help sometimes! From strategy to personal development, these are the books that we’d recommend the Westerosi read… whether an individual recommendation, or something that pretty much anyone aiming for the throne could benefit from.

Literary Families who Deserve the This is Us Treatment

Last week marked the season finale of This is Us. And while, honestly, it’s a relief to know we won’t be crying over a fictional family every week, there’s still going to be a Pearson-shaped hole in our hearts until the fall.

But while we wait for Randall, Kate, and Kevin to grace our televisions once more, here are five literary families who would be the perfect inspiration for a This is Us-style show.

The Literary Roles of Kiera Knightly

We really really love Keira Knightley. (Is that totally uncool? We don’t care.) And it seems like she loves us too – or at least the things we stand for. Throughout her long and illustrious career, she’s shown a fervent dedication to all things literary, playing some of our favorite fictional characters – and one wronged author! And today we’re looking back on that career. (And forward to the roles ahead.) Happy birthday, Kiera Knightly. We hope your day is filled with hours and hours of reading. Because you deserve it.

Our Favorite Jane the Virgin Literary References

The fifth and final season of Jane the Virgin premieres this week and we are on the edge of our seats. (Y’all! You can’t leave us with a cliffhanger like that and then not come back until mid-season. That’s just not fair.) As fans of the show know, Jane is an avid reader (and writer!) who always has something incredible to read. You can tell it’s a writers room full of book worms. (We see you, fellow nerds.) So, without further ado, here are some of our favorite literary moments of the series.
