THE HELP is now in paperback!

Posted by Stephen

More than 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list…More than 2.5 million hardcovers in print…Available in more than 40 countries…and soon to be a major motion picture this summer…

And now The Help by Kathryn Stockett is available in paperback!
150x240.jpgSet in the segregated South of the early 1960s, The Help tells the story of Skeeter, an ambitious young white woman, and the two African-American maids --- Aibileen and Minny --- whose lives she chronicles. The Help takes readers back to a time and place where not all people were treated equal and civil freedoms were not guaranteed. It is a deeply moving story of race, class and the meaning of family that unfolds during one of the most tumultuous time periods in American history. The Help is a book that sparks many emotions and debates about our country’s past while we continue to build a better future.
