The SECRET LIFE OF BEES by Sue Monk Kidd has been adapted into a Major Motion Picture

Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees is a powerful coming-of-age story about the ability of love to transform our lives. Kidd’s cherished novel has been adapted into a movie due in theaters on October 17, 2008.  If you are a Sue Monk Kidd fan and loved this book, you can watch a world-premiere clip at Borders.com in their wonderful media area.  

Written and directed by Gina Prince-Blythewood, the movie stars Dakota Fanning as Lily Owens and Academy Award Winner Jennifer Hudson as her caretaker and “stand-in” mother, Rosaleen. The two soon discover a trio of beekeeping sisters played by Queen Latifah (August), Alicia Keys (June) and Sophie Okonedo (May). Completing the cast is Paul Bettany as T. Ray, Tristan Wilds (Zach), Nate Parker (Neil) and Hilarie Burton (Deborah).

If you have not read this book and want to do so before the movie comes out there is no time like the present to pick up a copy.  To learn more about this book and the author Sue Monk Kidd you can go to her website, http://www.suemonkkidd.com/default.aspx.
