Best of AOT: Before Hitting Hollywood, Carleen Brice Reads from Orange Mint and Honey
In Denver we get excited when a Tattered Cover employee graduates to “author,” when they go from dreaming of their words on the printed page to walking into one of the best independent book stores in the country to see their book displayed with pride at the store entrance.
We feel an extra bit of pride when one of these books becomes a Hollywood film, a trip Carleen Brice‘s Orange Mint and Honey will complete this Sunday, February 21 (8 PM ET/5 PM PT) as Sins of the Mother, based on Orange Mint and Honey, premiers on Lifetime Movie Network.
Boasting an all-start cast, Sins of the Mother stars Jill Scott (singer and star of the HBO original film The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency) as Nona. Nicole Beharie (American Violet) portrays Shay, and Mimi Rogers plays Nona’s sponsor Lois.
Let’s rewind nearly two years to February 2008, when Carleen Brice returned to her old haunts to find a packed house waiting for her to read from her debut novel. In this Best of Authors On Tour podcast, Carleen reads two passages from Orange Mint and Honey. If you’d like to hear more, you can also listen to Carleen podcast her second novel, Children of the Waters
