A 92-year-old subscription service reinvented itself. Now it’s a hit with millennial women.

Review by Ron Charles. Views expressed are opinions of the author.

The 1920s roared with jazzy ideas, though perhaps none as novel as the Book of the Month Club, which debuted in 1926. It was the brainchild of Harry Scherman, an ad man who had found success earlier by selling Shakespeare plays with Whitman’s chocolates.

A growing middle class with limited access to bookstores and even less idea of what to read rushed to sign up for Scherman’s new club. Among the selections that first year was a debut novel by a young man named Ernest Hemingway. Coincidentally, “The Sun Also Rises” is also a fitting epithet for the Book of the Month Club, which rose to become a major force in

Netflix’s ‘The Keepers’ Features Women Speaking Up About Sexual Assault & They’re ‘Silence Breakers,’ Too

Though it’s a trend that’s been on the rise for the last couple of years, 2017 proved that true crime is here to stay. And while millions tuned into Serial and marathoned Making a Murderer, one true crime show flew a little more under the radar because it approached the topic differently. Netflix’s The Keepers used the murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik as an entrance point to uncovering the alleged sexual abuse at Keough High School that many suspect played a role in why she was killed. In the vast majority of true crime shows, the victims are a mere footnote — but The Keepers‘ strong focus on the victims sets it apart and makes the series the most important crime documentary of 2017. And, though it came a few months before the wave of sexual assault allegations against powerful men, the

Missouri Man Accused of Murdering 2 Young Women Who Vanished Nearly 10 Years Apart

A Missouri man believed to be responsible for the disappearances of two women nearly a decade apart has been charged with their murders, PEOPLE confirms.

Kylr Yust, 29, faces two counts each of first-degree murder and abandonment of a corpse in the deaths of Jessica Runions and Kara Kopetsky, according to Cass County, Missouri, jail officials. He was reportedly charged on Thursday.

Runions, 21, was last seen leaving a friend’s house party in September 2016. She allegedly left the party with Yust, a friend of her boyfriend.

Days after she vanished, Yust was arrested for allegedly burning Runions’ vehicle, which was found after she went missing, according to police in Kansas City, Missouri. That case has since been dropped in light of the murder counts, according to local TV station WDAF.

It was not immediately clear what led to the

Why Women Should Be Writing True Crime By Piu Eatwell

I have been writing true crime for four years now, and I’ve just finished my most challenging book yet.  Black Dahlia, Red Rose is an investigation of the infamous ‘Black Dahlia’ murder: the as yet unsolved killing of 22 year old Hollywood hopeful Elizabeth Short, whose body was found sprawled on a pavement in suburban Los Angeles in January 1947.

Piu Eatwell by Carsten Wilde

From my teen years, I have loved reading true crime.  Fictional thrillers are great but they are never the same for me, really….because they aren’t actually true.  So when I grew up, it seemed natural for me to write books in the field that I most enjoyed reading.  Embarking on a career in true crime as a woman, however, was daunting.  The genre was dominated by veteran male journalists, who had spent years on the beat and hung out in

TV shows created by women have more speaking parts for women, study finds

Turns out that when a TV show has at least one female creator, women make up at least 51 percent of the major characters, a number that’s proportionate to their representation in the US population. This is, as they say, a “news flash.” Who would have guessed that putting women in charge of a narrative would result in a piece of entertainment that treats women as human beings and powerful players in their own stories? Surprise! By contrast, shows with only male creators gave 38 percent of their major speaking roles to women.

These numbers come from “Boxed In,” San Diego State University’s annual report on gender disparities in television, which has just been released for the 2016–2017 TV season. The report is compiled by the university’s Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, which has also released annual reports on the position

‘Women Who Kill’ is a fresh twist on indie comedy, romance and serial killers

Filled with a dry wit driven by its writer-director-star Ingrid Jungermann, “Women Who Kill” is a darkly comic indie that is a distinct product of its place and time. Its location is Park Slope in Brooklyn, and much of the drama takes place in a co-op grocery store, a quintessential neighborhood spot. Its timing in the present places it firmly in the world where podcast hosts are local celebrities and the borough’s residents use Zipcar for their errands.

Morgan (Jungermann) hosts “Women Who Kill,” a true crime podcast with her ex-girlfriend Jean (Ann Carr), where they interview female serial killers, including Lila (Annette O’Toole). Morgan’s passion for stories of murder extends to her relationship with Simone (Sheila Vand), a mysterious young woman she meets at the co-op. Is Simone more devious than what she seems, or is Morgan simply inventing trouble in her romance?

“Women Who Kill” is delightfully specific in its
