Warren Beatty has been selected for a tribute by the Screenwriters Colony, a Massachusetts-based non-profit residency and mentorship program that supports emerging writers.
Beatty will be honored at the group’s fifth Annual Summer Soiree on July 22 at Almanack Arts Colony in Nantucket, Mass. Sarah Treem, creator of the Showtime series “The Affair” and an alumna of Screenwriters Colony, will speak about her professional experiences and the impact the Colony has played in her life.

The most-read book since Gone with the Wind looked at the coming of age struggle of an ambitious, upwardly mobile Jewish girl in the 1930s.

There haven’t been this many young hormones on display since Warren Beatty failed to deflower Natalie Wood in 1961’s “Splendor in the Grass.” William Inge’s story of high school lust took place in the Roaring ’20s when such repression was common. Nowadays, writers have to go much younger, to middle school, to find their hungry virgins. Jenny and Emily are 14 years old and into junk food, slasher movies, and getting laid for the first time.
