Noted British poet and biographer Andrew Motion is penning a sequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic TREASURE ISLAND, which came out in nearly 130 years ago. No release date set.

Pat Conroy (PRINCE OF TIDES, THE GREAT SANTINI) recently announced he is writing a memoir about his career and the writers and titles that inspired him throughout.

A variety of classic titles have made their way on to cool, clever shirts, with a lot of vendors donating proceeds to literacy causes around the world.

If authors run out monster mash-up titles, here are some suggestions with covers to boot!

Sherman Alexie won the PEN/Faulkner Award for his novel WAR DANCES. He also won a National Book of the Year award for THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN a few years back.

Emma Stone (Zombieland, Superbad) is the early favorite to play Skeeter in the forthcoming film version of THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett.

A new Shel Silverstein collection of poetry and illustrations could be released as early as 2011! Rejoice!

Ian McEwan's ATONEMENT scored on the screen, how about the stage?

The trailer for EAT, PRAY, LOVE starring Julia Roberts has been released.
