Helen Ellis's new collection of essays Southern Lady Code has been called "a cross between David Sedaris & Reese Witherspoon."

It covers everything from marriage to thank-you notes. On Second Thought reads between the lines with her ahead of her book tour stops in Atlanta and Athens.   

On Second Thought for Monday, Sept. 3, 2019

Bettina Love’s new book, We Want to Do More Than Survive, explores the implications of predominantly white teachers working with children of color. Love joins On Second Thought to give advice on how educators can cross boundaries to love, understand and educate all kids.

Kyanna Simone Simpson shows no signs of stopping. The Decatur native and University of Georgia student's first Netflix series, Chambers, was released earlier this year. And Oprah Winfrey told Vanity Fair she'd pick Simpson to portray her in a biopic. 

Simpson's previous credits include The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, in which she acted alongside Winfrey as the younger version of Winfrey's character, Deborah Lacks.

She's also appeared as Keisha in the CW's Black Lightning.
