MFA alumna Eleanor Henderson's novel being made into a film

Eleanor Henderson's first novel, Ten Thousand Saints, is being made into a film. Henderson is a 2005 graduate of the MFA in Creative Writing Program and began her novel, which captures the straight edge youth counterculture of the 80s, while still a student at UVa. Shari Springer Berman and Bob Pulcini wrote the screenplay and are directing the film, and the film will star Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Emile Hirsch, Julianne Nicholson, and Ethan Hawke.
