Blumhouse TV Lands Rights to Adapt Clémence Michallon’s The Quiet Tenant

Blumhouse TV is adapting Clémence Michallon’s debut novel The Quiet Tenant for the small screen. The novel, which was published this month by Knopf, was recently described by The New York Times as an “expertly paced psychological thriller.” It tells the story of a serial killer, as narrated by those close to him: his 13-year old daughter, his girlfriend, and his victim. “I read Clémence’s novel in one sitting and was riveted. The story has all the elements of a great screen adaptation,” said Jason Blum, Founder and CEO of Blumhouse. Michallon will executive produce on the project.

Georgia Teacher Fired for Reading Children’s Book About Acceptance in Class

Elementary school teacher Katie Rinderle has been fired under Georgia’s Protect Students’ Rights Act after reading a book about acceptance in her classroom. Rinderle read the international, best-selling children’s book My Shadow is Purple to her 5th grade gifted class at Due West Elementary School in Cobb County, Georgia. After the reading, the class discussed the book’s message of acceptance of oneself and others and wrote “shadow” poems to self-reflect. The district fired the elementary school teacher for introducing “divisive concepts” in the classroom, although they’ve refused to answer what “divisive concepts” means. Rinderle is now working with her union, the Georgia Association of Educators and the Goodmark Law Firm, to fight her unjust termination.
