is the new miniseries on HBO. If you have been watching this series you may or may not know it was adapted from a book that was awarded a Pulitzer Prize.  Author David McCullough penned this great book that has inspired the 7-part miniseries. 

If you have missed this series you can still find all of the parts on HBO at various hours of the day during the week.  Tom Hanks is a behind this adaptation.  He is fast becoming the king of the mini series. 

Don’t forget to go out and pick up a copy of the book or get on the list to reserve it from your local library.  We are told from libraries all across the country that this book is very hot right now.

From the first episode of this wonderful series, I was reminded of the WEDNESDAY LETTERS that Falise and I reviewed last month. Husband and wives not only writing their to each, but leaving a loving legacy in letters. Without email, and text messaging, the Adams’s chronicled their friendship/ marriage with amazingly frank, friendly and affectionate letters. Read MY DEAREST FRIEND: LETTERS OF ABAGAIL AND JOHN ADMAMS, C. James Taylor, (Editor) A Hallmark Card will never be the same.
