Ron Howard’s got quite a talented family. See — actually hear — for yourself by downloading an audio edition of his wife Cheryl Howard Crew’s 2005 novel, “In the Face of Jinn,” out Monday.

Do as Jennifer Lopez does: Load up on sunblock when you’re exposed. As the face of L’Oreal Paris Sublime Sun, the actress-singer is helping bring awareness to the brand’s new philanthropic alliance with the Melanoma Research Alliance. Through Dec. 31, for every SS product sold in the U.S., $1 will be donated to the cause. Find out your so-called Skin IQ at lorealparisusa.com/sun.


Husband and wife team Jesse and Carly Burnett care about life’s little comforts.
