NEW YORK (AP) – The GLAAD frontman and his rock star wife are teaming up on a children’s book about the many types of moms around the world.
“All Moms,” co-authored by GLAAD CEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis and Kristen Ellis-Henderson of Antigone Rising, will be published by Little Bee Books on March 1.
“This book celebrates what it really means to be a mother – to offer your child unconditional love,” the two authors said in a statement on Wednesday. “We hope this book will help children understand the different ways a family can be like, while teaching them the important values of compassion, empathy, and acceptance.”
Little Bee calls the book, illustrated by Max Rambaldi, “a love letter to mothers – moms who make us laugh, moms who read us stories, moms who snuggle up when we’re sad and help us grow. Some moms are silly, some are athletic or clever, but all moms are amazing. Moms can do it all!
Little Bee and GLAAD, the LGBTQ + media advocacy group, formed a publishing partnership in 2018 for children’s books that celebrate sexual and gender diversity. Previous releases include “Prince & Knight”, “Maiden & Princess” and “Jack (Not Jackie)”.
Ellis and Ellis-Henderson, who have two children, also co-wrote “Times Two: Two Women in Love and the Happy Family They Made”.
NBC to bring back original ‘Law & Order’ for 21st season
LOS ANGELES (AP) – More than a decade after it was last broadcast, “Law & Order” returns on NBC.
The network announced on Tuesday that it is bringing back the cop and court crime drama for a 21st season. When the show left the airwaves in May 2010, it was tied with “Gunsmoke” for longest-running prime-time television drama.
NBC says the series will keep the split format of focusing on police investigating crimes and prosecutors bringing cases to court. No casting or premiere date has been announced.
“There are few things in life that are dreams come true,” said series creator Dick Wolf. “It’s mine.”
The “Law & Order” franchise survived even after the cancellation of the original series, thanks to several spinoffs, including the popular “Law & Order: SVU”.
Wolf’s shows remain a popular draw for NBC, with its three prime-time “Chicago” series making up the network’s Wednesday night program. The popularity of these shows is helping NBC beat other networks at the start of the new fall TV season, especially with the crucial 18-49 audience.
