Today marks one year since Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico. The storm wreaked havoc on the island, destroying over 90,000 homes, shutting down the electrical grid, and forcing more than 300,000 people to leave their homes.
When I visited Puerto Rico with Red Nose Day months after the hurricane, I was astounded. Not only by the many issues still troubling the island, but by the strength and resilience demonstrated by those who live there.
Among the many incredible people I met during my trip, I was particularly touched by 13-year old Gabriela. Gabriela and her family survived the storm by hiding in a tiny closet, while their home was battered and destroyed. Despite her ongoing hardships, Gabriela has aspirations to become a doctor, and to help her mom rebuild their home.
Lauren attended the Motion Picture & Television Fund’s Evening Before Emmys on Sunday night!
While there are no red carpet pics from the event, makeup artist Jamie Greenberg and actress Jane Levy have shared pretty pictures of Lauren, along with Jane, BFF Mae Whitman and Jenny Slate before the party 😍
Book description: From the moment she entered the world, Francie needed to be made of stern stuff, for the often harsh life of Williamsburg demanded fortitude, precocity, and strength of spirit. Often scorned by neighbors for her family’s erratic and eccentric behavior—such as her father Johnny’s taste for alcohol and Aunt Sissy’s habit of marrying serially without the formality of divorce—no one, least of all Francie, could say that the Nolans’ life lacked drama. By turns overwhelming, sublime, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the Nolans’ daily experiences are tenderly threaded with family connectedness and raw with honesty. Betty Smith has, in the pages of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, captured the joys of humble Williamsburg life-from “junk day” on Saturdays, when the children of Francie’s neighborhood traded their weekly take for pennies, to the special excitement of holidays, bringing cause for celebration and revelry. Betty Smith has artfully caught this sense of exciting life in a novel of childhood, replete with incredibly rich moments of universal experiences—a truly remarkable achievement for any writer..
