Are you watching the Academy Awards this year?
We definitely are. Check out our recommendations, learn about the stories behind the scenes and listen to the best soundtracks before and after the winners are announced.
Movie: Hidden Figures
Our Pick: The film about three women who made unrecognized contributions to NASA work is based on a great book, also available as an audiobook free download.
Movie: I Am Not Your Negro
Our Pick: Although this documentary film is based on an unfinished manuscript by James Baldwin, his other published works are just as powerful. We suggest Notes of a Native Son as a starting point
Movie: Life, Animated
Our Pick: The book that the screenplay is adapted from, written by Ron Suskind about his son Owen, won the Pullitzer Prize. A moving story about the relationship between a father and son, this is definitely worth a read.
