“Change begins with a whisper”, according to one of the many themes brought to life by the novel, The Help, by Kathryn Stockett. The Help was released in 2009 and was a #1 New York Times Bestseller for over 100 weeks.

In 2011, Kathryn Stockett was very involved in the process of making the book into an academy award-winning movie and
