The Olympics have been over for a week now, but patriotism is back in the news — or rather, what some perceive as a lack of patriotism and respect for the national anthem.

There’s nothing like losing yourself in a good book, so emotionally connected to the characters that you feel like you’ve left your close friends when you finally turn the last page.
It’s even more satisfying when that book is set in a place that’s familiar to you, such as your own state. You can identify landmarks and details that might only exist in the imagination of others who haven’t visited the locations.

Alabama: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
It’s a tale as old as time…
Belle is a girl who is dissatisfied with life in a small provincial French town, constantly trying to fend off the misplaced “affections” of conceited Gaston. The Beast is a prince who was placed under a spell because he could not love.
A wrong turn taken by Maurice, Belle’s father, causes the two to meet.
But do you know what Jackie Chan has to do with the film or what the prince’s name actually is?
You will if you keep reading all about Beauty and the Beast.
