If you were lucky enough to come to Hoover's 2016 Southern Voices Festival, you were introduced to a new voice in Fiction writing, one Natalie Baszile. Her book, "Queen Sugar" is not only a pleasure to read, but will soon be coming to the small screen as a 14-episode television series on Oprah Winfrey's OWN channel beginning Tuesday, September 6, 2016. The series, starring Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Kofi Siriboe and directed by Ava DuVernay, follows two sisters that inherit their father's 800-acre sugarcane farm in Louisiana. Proudly showcasing wonderful African-American actors and directors, this series sounds like a drama worth adding to my to-watch list. If it's half as good as the book, it will be worth my viewing time!
