Piper Kerman‘s story has become a familiar one over the past few years thanks to first her memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Woman’s Prison, and its subsequent, semi-fictionalized Netflix adaptation. But what does that tale sound like from the other side of the marital bed? We’ll find out on Dec. 16, when Kerman’s husband, Larry Smith, will release the audiobook My Life with Piper: From Big House to Small Screen, in which he describes what was like to have his partner be sent to prison—and what it is like to be portrayed by Jason Biggs on the TV show.

“Those days are gone forever … I should just let ‘em go.”
No, Don Henley. To hell with that. Sometimes you’ve got to reach back to those glory days with all your might and pull them right back into the here and now — which is exactly what the American Cinematheque and your friendly, neighborhood EW writer are hoping to do with this weekend’s double-feature film fest Youth Is Brutal: Coming-of-Age Films.
Sinister tales of growing up (or not) make up this three-night event at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, beginning on Friday with back-to-back showings of Peter Jackson’s haunting Heavenly Creatures (1994) and Stand By Me (1986), Rob Reiner’s classic adaptation of the Stephen King friendship saga.

I never really cared about Father’s Day. Even when I became a father, I didn’t want to make a big deal — that is, until my own dad died.
Thankfully, I was lucky enough to tell my father how grateful I was for all he’d done throughout my life. But there’s nothing like the death of a parent to make you really examine their impact.
Do you know how Amelia Earhart got to ride on her first airplane? It was because of her father.

When Entertainment Weekly first spoke to actor Greg Sestero back in 2008 the cult which surrounded his film The Room was still a small, mostly Los Angeles-based affair. Six years on, director-writer-star Tommy Wiseau’s fantastically awful film has become famous around the world and Sestero’s recent memoir The Disaster Artist – which concerns both the film’s production and his friendship with Wiseau — has been optioned by James Franco.

People of Nerdfighteria: You’re gonna want to read this.
EW can reveal exclusively that YA rock star John Green has been tapped to headline a panel at BookCon — which is sort of like Comic-Con, but for, you know, actual books — all about The Fault in Our Stars‘s journey from page to screen. The panel, scheduled for May 31, will also feature TFIOS‘s film team, including Fox 2000 Pictures president Elizabeth Gabler, director Josh Boone, producer Wyck Godfrey, and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. EW’s own YA expert Sara Vilkomerson will moderate the event — which will also feature a sneak peek at footage from the upcoming film adaptation of TFIOS, which opens June 6.
The One, the final installment of Kiera Cass’ Selection trilogy, doesn’t hit shelves until May 6. So unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until then to find out if America Singer chooses Aspen or Maxon. I’m emotionally preparing myself for either outcome, though I’m quite partial to Maxon. So fingers crossed things work out in his favor. In the meantime, check out this exclusive trailer teasing the conclusion to Cass’ best-selling YA series. READ FULL STORY
