Stephen King’s ‘Misery’ Limited Editions to be Released

By February 10, 2018Literature, News

Stephen King’s 1987 psychological thriller is set to be reissued as limited editions with help from artist Rick Berry.

Inspired by moments in his own life where fans have been unhappy with his work- King wrote his protagonist, Paul Sheldon, as a writer famous for Victorian-era romance novels. After a nasty car crash the author is rescued by crazed fan Annie Wilkes, who takes him to her house and forces him to write a new book in order to modify the story to her own tastes.

The reissue of the novel will be music to King’s fans’ ears, giving them an opportunity to own something truly special.

Kathy Bates and James Caan star in the movie adaptation

6 Books to Help Teach Children About Consent

By | Children's Literature, Literature | No Comments
Consent is important when it comes to our bodily autonomy, and our personal space. When we understand consent we have the power to say ‘no’ when we want to, we have control over what happens to us, and it is less likely people will take advantage.

It is important for our children to learn about their bodily autonomy from an early age so that they understand that, despite being the less-powerful person, they are allowed to say ‘no’ to an adult who is asking for physical contact. If we feel uncomfortable as adults with people touching and hugging us without our expressed consent, then imagine what it is like for children who don’t feel empowered enough to refuse a hug.

When children are given the tools to understand ownership of their own bodies, and their personal space, then they’re far less likely to be sexually abused in the future. This means starting with family- sure Grandma may want a kiss goodbye but what are you teaching your child when you pressure them into physical contact they don’t want, even if it is with someone they love?

Check out these amazing titles, written to empower children and give them the tools to say NO to unwanted physical contact.
