Angelina Jolie is raising some avid readers.
The actress and four of her children hit up a local London bookstore on Monday, where an onlooker tells PEOPLE they indulged in a literary shopping spree. “She bought about 30 books,” says the onlooker. “Mostly coloring books, a Harry Potter book, plus some book markers and Easter-themed project books.”
Jolie was joined by her three girls — Shiloh, Vivienne, and Zahara — along with one of her boys, who the onlooker did not identify. “She was talking to the girl at the counter about how she loves to get her kids to enjoy books and loves London, as there are so many good book stores,” says the onlooker.
“She also thanked me for being considerate and sweet for letting her kid have the last copy of the Deathly Hallows. It was in my hand at the time, but I let him have it,” adds the source. “She was lovely. Her kids are so polite. Her lad came over and thanked me for letting him have the book he wanted for a school project. Called me ‘Sir.’ Nice people.”
Meanwhile, the filmmaker-actress, 41, returned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London on Monday, where she commemorated the fifth anniversary of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI) she helped launch in 2012. Jolie partnered up with then-British foreign secretary William Hague to prevent the use of rape and sexual violence as a means of terror during wars and conflict.

Five years later, Jolie is promoting the Time to Act initiative to hold sexual offenders accountable for their war crimes. “When this kind of violence and abuse happens in peacetime, we are absolutely clear it is a crime that deserves to be punished by law,” Jolie exclusively tells PEOPLE. “But when it happens in the middle of a conflict, on a mass scale, with such brutal violence, it is treated as something impossible to prevent or somehow justified by the climate of war.” Jolie will be heading to Geneva on Wednesday to continue her humanitarian work. She will deliver the Annual Sergio Vieira de Mello Memorial Lecture at the United Nations Assembly Hall, focusing on key emerging humanitarian themes and topical issues that continue to reflect the late U.N. Brazilian diplomat’s principles, philosophy, and work.

    The Château Miraval, owned in the south of France by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, is not for sale despite their divorce and it made its first harvest of olive oil, it was learned Tuesday from The family of wine growers Perrin, associated with the management of the estate.

    Le Château Miraval, possédé dans le sud de la France par Brad Pitt et Angelina Jolie, n'est pas à vendre malgré leur divorce et il a fait sa première récolte d'huile d'olive, a-t-on appris mardi auprès de la famille de vignerons Perrin, associée à la gestion du domaine.
    Cette propriété proche de Correns dans le Var, où les deux stars d'Hollywood avaient célébré leur mariage en petit comité en 2014, commercialise un rosé d'appellation Côtes de Provence, très prisé aux Etats-Unis. Il compte aussi énormément d'oliviers cultivés en terrasses.

    "Il y en a sur 12 hectares et maintenant qu'ils ont 12 ans d'âge, on a sorti une huile extra-vierge 100% bio", a indiqué à l'AFP le vigneron Charles Perrin. La production reste confidentielle, avec seulement 10.000 bouteilles de 50 cl, en vente depuis ce mois-ci.

    Pour cette huile gastronomique, dont la présentation commerciale dit qu'elle est "suave, aux notes d'amande, de noisette et d’artichaut barigoule" et conditionnée dans un flacon en grès pour une meilleure conservation, et de couleur noir pour le chic, il faut débourser 29 euros le demi-litre.

    Le couple qui faisait rêver le monde entier, est en instance de divorce depuis septembre 2016 mais "les rumeurs de vente du domaine sont fausses", assure M. Perrin. "C'est un investissement pour leur famille et leurs enfants. Ils nous l'ont redit et participent à tout ce qui touche au domaine. On a des projets à long terme et on vient de sortir le dernier millésime de rosé avec nos noms dessus, mis en bouteille par Pitt, Jolie et Perrin ", a-t-il certifié.

  7. Angelina Jolie hosts first lecture at LSE
    ---------------------------------------
    Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has been praised by students following her first appearance as a lecturer.

    The actor and director spoke to students taking the postgraduate course Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics.

    The university said she talked about her experience and what motivated her work as UN special envoy.

    Student Tazeen Dhanani tweeted Ms Jolie did "wonderfully" while Alana Foster described it as an incredible lecture.

    Ms Dhanani added: "She'll make an amazing visiting professor. So honoured to hear her inaugural lecture at LSE on sexual violence, rape, working with refugees."

    The star also answered questions from the students.

    Prof Christine Chinkin, director of the Centre for Women, Peace and Security, said: "I am delighted that LSE postgraduate students have had the unique opportunity to learn directly from the valuable insights, perspectives and experiences that Angelina Jolie, UN special envoy and visiting professor in practice, brought to the class."

    She added that "critical and constructive" engagement on women's human rights was "at the core of the education programme" at the centre.

    Before the lesson, Jolie told the Evening Standard she was "feeling butterflies" as "this is very important to me".

    The course is run by the Centre for Women, Peace and Security, which was launched last year by Jolie and former Foreign Secretary William Hague.

    In 2012, the pair co-founded a global initiative to tackle sexual violence in conflict zones.

    On Monday, Jolie said although she was proud of what had been achieved, "we are very focused on the next steps: taking the tools that have been developed into the field to help document crimes and support prosecutions, working with militaries to change doctrine and training, and pushing for the implementation of laws to protect the very vulnerable victims".

    The actor, an envoy for the UN refugee agency UNHCR, has long campaigned for women's rights.

    She wrote and directed the 2011 film In the Land of Blood and Honey about the Bosnian war, in which an estimated 20,000 women are believed to have been raped.
