Behind the Prose guest Natalie Baszile’s debut novel picked up by “Selma” director Ava Duvernay and Oprah Winfrey’s OWN
It is with great Behind the Prose pride,that I share the awesome news about Natalie Baszile’s first novel. Queen Sugar is moving to Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network under the helm of Selma director Ava DuVernay.
I am proud, but I’m not surprised. Days before the news broke, I wrote “If there ever was a novel that surely will be a movie, Queen Sugar is it.”
According to Daniel Kreps’ Rolling Stone article, the Queen Sugar series will mark the first time Oprah Winfrey has acted on an OWN show.
Make sure you listen to the only radio show that explores and illuminates the writing craft and process, Behind the Prose on Sunday, March 1 at 6 p.m. EST to hear Natalie Baszile discuss character development in her novel. Think how much more well-informed you’ll be when the show airs!
