The Help, and a giveaway

Are you excited about the movie The Help that is being released in theaters tomorrow? Have you read the book?

While I was in San Diego this past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a screening of The Help, and while it was not exactly like the book, it was a really great film.

Sometimes I have a hard time letting go of the plot lines of a novel when I watch an adapted film. The fidelity here was certainly imperfect.

But when I try to let go of those inhibitions and enjoy the film as a separate creative project, I usually enjoy the film more, and have more fun.

And seeing this movie was definitely fun. I want you to enjoy it, too! So I have a prize pack of The Help goodies for one of you:

Included is:
- THE HELP t-shirt in adult female size (you pick your size)
- THE HELP pocket jotter & pen
- THE HELP fan
- THE HELP nail file/mirror

The contest will be open through Monday, August 15th at 11:59 EDT. I'll announce the winner on Tuesday.
