Billie Letts is best known for her book Where the Heart Is, which was made into a major motion picture. She is also the author of The Honk and Holler Opening Soon and Made in the U.S.A. Unbelievably she began her career as a screenwriter.

Her most recent completed project was “Veritas, Prince of Truth” which will screen for FREE at the Gem Theater on May 1st at 2pm. This animated and live-action adventure is Dove approved for family-friendly viewing.

When 14 year-old Kern learns that his favorite comic book series, Veritas, Prince of Truth, faces cancellation, he leaps into action and brings his winged hero (Sean Patrick Flanery, of “Young Indiana Jones”) into reality. But Veritas’ enemy Nemissi (Kate Walsh, of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice”) has clawed her way into our world as well. She aims to destroy Earth as well as Veritas’ home planet.
