Literary Hub has delivered us news of two book adaptations, one of them still in the works and the other ready for your perusal.

The former is a TV version of Natasha Trethewey’s Memorial Drive, a memoir about coming to terms with her mother’s death at the hands of her stepfather.

Sony Pictures Television has optioned the bestseller to become a drama series, and the search for a writer is in progress, according to Deadline, which served as Lit Hub's source.

Trethewey was the US poet laureate from 2012-2014 and received the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 2007.

On a much lighter note, Lit Hub has also made us aware of the Awesomely Austen: Illustrated and Retold series.

Each original Austen novel is rewritten for a younger set and includes illustrations; right now, it appears that US buyers can purchase Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma, but not Mansfield Park.
