Many of the popular novels and stories of today would not be possible if it were not for authors such as Ursula K. Le Guin, whose original name is Ursula Kroeber, which during her time period, created a high standard for authors to come. She was one of the most well known authors that wrote several novels that instantly became popular. Many of her stories that were intended for children drew in many adults as a result of her writing style. She was an amazing writer which did not come from nowhere. Her father was a distinguished anthropologist named A.L Kroeber and her mother, Theodora Kroeber, also a writer, influenced many of the novels and stories that she wrote.
Everyone Loves Lucille Ball Some famous Americans have won the noble peace prize, while others might be known for creating world peace or world catastrophes.

Charlotte and Emily Bronte are known to be the most successful authors of their time; writing stories that contain truth’s that have standed the test of time. However, their success did not come easy. Bronte used a pen name to conceal her identity and shield from ridicule for the first few months after Jane Eyre was released to the public. Bronte found her success in her writing skills, not in her beauty. Even though Charlotte was not the most beautiful woman, she found abundant success in her talents.
The novel “Risk” by Fleur Ferris is about two teenage girls – Taylor and Sierra. Sierra meets a “boy” named Jacob Jones online and agrees to meet up with him but after three days, she still hasn’t come back home and her phone always goes straight to voicemail, Taylor ends up trying to figure out what happened to her. I felt that this novel is what I would call an actual good book, unlike other books, which seem to have a lot of girly romance that isn’t realistic, “Risk” takes it to a whole new level as the whole storyline and situation is terrifying but at the same time realistic and sets awareness because it could happen in anyone’s

By Thanksgiving in 1922, The Goldwyn Company paid for the film rights and promptly released a silent film adaptation.
Grey’s Anatomy has been one of the most popular shows on network television since 2005. While most critics and fans agree that the first three seasons were the shows best, the storylines in the later seasons have still been able to add new and progressive ideas into the forefront of the show. The biggest change in storyline is when they introduced their first LGBTQ-identifying main character, Callie Torres.

Callie’s character has made a major transition in the show from being the straight rich girl who cannot survive without having a romantic relationship to hold onto, to the complex, strong, and hysterical bisexual character that is able to stand up for herself with no essential need for a significant other.
Rough Draft Being known as a horror writer may be Mary Shelley’s claim to fame. In fact, at the mention of the author’s name, most people will automatically envision the bolt-necked monster with which we are all familiar. While Mary Shelley did not gain much recognition for her work during her lifetime, she used her experience and her writing to promote equality for women.

Films representing the early 1900s never interested me, so you could imagine a novel. All that changed after reading Zola Neale Hurston’s Their Eye were watching God.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was actually featured on over 60 of the critics’ best of the year lists. I think for this being her first book and winning all of those awards is really fascinating and that she accomplished something really big. In this book she names a lot of people and it is hard to keep up with all of them, but a couple of people stand out to me. The first person who stood out to me would be her daughter, Deborah.
Book Review The Bullet by Mary Louise Kelly [Video] Written by former NPR correspondent, Mary Louise Kelly, the story is interesting and kept my attention, however, I would not say it was heart-pounding.

Adopted at the age of three by a well-to-do family in Washington DC, Caroline remembers nothing about her birth parents or for that matter, the tragedy in Georgia that erased them from her life.
Her first nomination was for the very first Emmy designated for women on television. Betty White is also the very first and only woman who has won an Emmy in all performing comedic categories.

Betty White remains humble even after she has been accepting awards for 60 years.
