Maine resident Jesus Christ sends letter to Oprah Winfrey

A letter from Jesus Christ might be the affirmation Oprah Winfrey needs to run for the presidency.

WGME-TV reports an 83-year-old Maine woman who changed her name to Jesus Christ says she began a letter writing campaign 50 years ago to spread a message of faith and peace. Christ says she sent the letter to Winfrey because she likes her but had no idea it would get so much attention.

Gayle King, one of the hosts of "CBS This Morning," posted about the letter to Winfrey on Instagram on Wednesday, asking if it was the sign her best friend was looking for.

Winfrey said on "60 Minutes" that if God wanted her to run for president "wouldn't God kinda tell me?"

Christ says she didn't know there was speculation about Winfrey, but she'd vote for her.

Indian singer convicted of trafficking jobseekers to America

A popular Indian pop singer was convicted of human trafficking and cheating Friday by a court that found he took money to pretend people were in his performance troupe so they could get jobs in North America.

Daler Mehndi said he is innocent. The court in the northern city of Patiala sentenced him to two years in prison but freed him on bail while he challenges his conviction in an appeals court.

Prosecutors said Mehndi and his brother took "passage money" from Indians they offered to disguise as performers in his troupe. The jobseekers could then stay in the United States and Canada to find work.

The cheating conviction alleges the brothers took money from some Indians and never took them abroad. They filed police complaints in 2003.

Mehndi told reporters on Friday that his brother was the main accused in the case and he died last year.

The Press Trust of India reported that the Mehndi brothers took two dance troupes to the United States in 1998 and 1999 and allegedly dropped off 13 members illegally.

Mehndi shot into fame in the 1990s with Punjabi-language songs and energetic dancing and has lent his voice for Bollywood film songs.

He has a large fan following among Indian migrants in the United States, Canada and Britain.

However, Themmen did not mention that he had been in the classic that starred Gene Wilder. When host Alex Trebek asked Themmen about an interesting fact, the former child star said he was an “avid backpacker” who had hiked on six continents, ET Online reported.

Joan Silber, Frances FitzGerald win Critics Circle awards

"Improvement," Joan Silber's novel about interconnected lives spanning from Turkey to New York's Harlem, won the National Book Critics Circle award for fiction.

On a night when winners in all six competitive categories were women, Frances FitzGerald's "The Evangelicals: The Struggle to Shape America" was honored Thursday for nonfiction and Caroline Fraser's book on Laura Ingalls Wilder, "Prairie Fires," won for biography.

Silber has long been praised as a master of narrative, timing and capturing her characters' inner lives. Her previous works include her acclaimed debut novel, "Household Words," and the story collection "Ideas of Heaven." FitzGerald, a celebrated journalist and author, is best known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning work on the Vietnam War, "Fire in the Lake," and for "Way Out There in the Blue: Reagan, Star Wars and the End of the Cold War," a Pulitzer Prize finalist. Her latest work was a National Book Award finalist last fall.

Others cited Thursday night included Layli Long Soldier in poetry for "Whereas," Xiaolu Guo's "Nine Continents: A Memoir In and Out of China" for autobiography and Carina Chocano's "You Play The Girl" for criticism.

National Book Critics Circle award finalists included two of last year's most-talked about novels, Jesmyn Ward's "Sing, Unburied, Sing" and Mohsin Hamid's best-selling "Exit West."

The NBCC also presented a lifetime achievement award to prize-winning author-journalist John McPhee and cited author-critic Charles Finch for "excellence in reviewing." Silber is among the authors Finch has praised. In a review last year in The Washington Post, he likened her to Alice Munro and Grace Paley and lamented that she was "too little loved, too little mentioned, beyond a small readership that seems to be composed mostly of other writers." Carmen Maria Machado, author of the story collection "Her Body and Other Parties: Stories," was given the John Leonard Prize for best debut book. Leonard, who died in 2008, was a founder of the National Book Critics Circle and had a long history of championing emerging writers.

The NBCC was founded in 1974 and is comprised of more than 700 critics and editors.

Ava DuVernay to direct DC superhero film 'The New Gods'

Ava DuVernay's "A Wrinkle in Time" may have disappointed at the box office, but she's already booked another big-budget project.

Warner Bros. said Thursday that DuVernay will direct "The New Gods," a DC Comics property created by the famed comic book artist Jack Kirby. It's an elaborate science fiction work, part of Kirby's "Fourth World Saga," about two warring alien planets. It debuted in 1971.

DuVernay became the first African-American woman to direct a live-action movie with a budget of $100 million or more with "A Wrinkle in Time." The Disney release debuted last weekend with $33 million in ticket sales.

Warner Bros. recently reshuffled its DC film division after critical duds like "Justice League" and "Suicide Squad." A "Wonder Woman" sequel is in development and an "Aquaman" spinoff is due out in December.
