Emma on PBS

Just a reminder because I know many people are looking forward to it. Emma premires tonight on PBS and will run the next three Sundays.

I just found out that Johnny Lee Miller is Mr. Knightly in this one-I had the biggest crush on him after I watched Hackers in middle school!

There's also an Emma Twitter party happening during the show, so be sure to join in!

I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too!
