Kathryn Stockett spent five years writing The Help, her debut novel. After facing more than 45 rejections from literary agents, The Help was bought by Amy Einhorn Books and was published in February 2009. The buzz around The Help grew from the instant it was in stores. It was a #1 New York Times Bestseller and is approaching the two year mark on the New York Times bestseller list. The Help has sold all over the world, translated into 40 languages, and is a nationwide phenomenon in the US that has sold three million copies. It is soon to be a major motion picture.
