SOLD, the movie

SOLD movie posterI was proud beyond words to see SOLD, a film directed by Jeffrey Brown and produced by Jane Charles, at the Seattle International Film Festival last week. It is visually stunning and emotionally powerful. Here’s a link to the trailer: SOLD, a film produced by Emma Thompson.


The film has been chosen to open the Indian Film Festival in London on July 10th and the Asian Film Festival in New York in late July.


Details TBA.

    I’m thanking you to got the Chance to visit your LitCologne reading about Mallalas Story. The event was on Thursday, the 19th March 2015.

    The reading was very interesting, because of such a Story, which I have never heard before.

    I would like if you read more from your book next time without translation.

    With hoping for an answer I’m thanking you again for that great experience.

    Dear Ms.McCornick,
    Mz name is Maren, I’m 13 years old and i go to the 8th grade on the Rhein-Sieg-Gymnasium in Sankt Augustin.I went with my class on the LitColonge event and heard your lecture about malala.I found that was a very exciting lecture, because you and Ms.Schwarzkopf and the german reader told us the story of malala very affectful.After the lecture my heart was broken. Why did the taliban do such things to such a wonderful and strong person? It’s not a ok to allowed! But I still have 1 questions, but i was too shy to ask you in front of the other: How are the family of malala reacted to the information that Malala was shot? My big wish is, that you reply a lecture about another book. I feel that the people you write about gain a voice through your books. Can you please write a book about kids with a not- normal-body like Downsyndrome or handicapped kids? It would help me a lot with my handicapping! I know you are very busy but i hope you can answer my comment! I wish you a lot ideas for your coming books and a wonderful day! Your fan Maren

    Dear Patricia Mc Cormick
    My name is Laurenz Dommack , I’m 13 years old and I’m in grade 8 of the “Rhein-Sieg-Gymnasium” near Bonn in Germany.
    On Thursday the 19th March , 2015
    me and my class went to the “Lit Cologne” and listened to your reading about Malala’s story.
    I really liked how you and your german translating partner presented your book and i’m very impressed of Malala’s story and how she deals with the threat of the Taliban who want to kill her.
    In Addition I wanted to ask you how much time you needed to product your story about Malala. Also I would be interested where I can buy the book on Malala’s story.
    I would be very happy, if you would answer me, altough you’re so busy and famous.
    Yours Laurenz

    Dear Patricia McCormick,

    my name is Janina and I´m 14 years old. I visited your LitCologne event about Malala´s story with my class of the Rhein-Sieg-Gymnasium last Thursday.Your presentation of your book and the way you told us the story about Malala was very interesting. Because of your good pronunciation we were able to understand most of it. I enjoyed especially your description of your meeting with Malala and that you took the time to answer our questions.
    I hope to see you once again.

    Yours Janina

    Dear Patricia,
    my name is Nele and I am 14 years old.
    On Thursday, 19th March, I went to the LitCologne event about Malala’s story and in my opinion it was very informing and interesting. I liked that you spoke very clearly so I was able to understand you/everything. Thanks!
    That’s why I’d love to hear more of your English reading during the lecture and less of the German translation. Maybe I’ll get the chance at the next LitCologne. That would be nice:)
    I hope you will write more interesting books like Malala’s story.
    Yours Nele

    Dear Patricia
    My name is Lukas and I’m 13 years old. I’m in 8th grade at the Rhein-Sieg-Gymnasium near Cologne. Yesterday we visited your LitCologne reading of the book: “Malala” In my opinion it was a nice lecture and there were many pieces of information about Malala’s life. I would have liked it , if you had read more in English. Because I liked listening to you. I hope I’ll get the chance to see you again next year at the LitCologne.
    With nice regards

    they can use to purchase items and upgrades in towns. This will be a common theme, because everything is made of Legos in this place.
