One of our favorite books of the year is being adapted for a television series! In a competitive bid, Sony Pictures bought Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey’s instant New York Times bestselling memoir, Memorial Drive: A Daughter's Memoir.

Named one of Washington Post's Top 10 Best Books of 2020, Memorial Drive is a chillingly personal and exquisitely wrought memoir of a daughter reckoning with the brutal murder of her mother at the hands of her former stepfather, and the moving, intimate story of a poet coming into her own in the wake of a tragedy. Memorial Drive is a compelling and searching look at a shared human experience of sudden loss and absence but also a piercing glimpse at the enduring ripple effects of white racism and domestic abuse. Animated by unforgettable prose and inflected by a poet's attention to language, this is a luminous, urgent, and visceral memoir from one of our most important contemporary writers and thinkers

Little is known about the series, but a search for the writer is already on the way. If you haven't read the book yet, now is the time!
