Authors Who Need Authors
Authors who need authors are the luckiest authors: We assess the harmonies and tumults at the 2002 Texas Book Festival.
Books Story  November 22, 2002, by Shawn Badgley
"...The threatening clouds of a Dago downpour passed over with nary a drizzle during his "At the Crossroads: Mexican-American Literature" appearance with Sandra Cisneros and Jimmy Santiago Baca on Saturday morning at the Texas Book Festival, but his was hardly the only storm system. It was, however, the biggest on a sunny weekend at the state Capitol that found couples young and old lounging in the grass and authors young and old biting each other in the ass like the men and women who most often inhabit that big chunk of limestone...."

African-American Book Festival Spotlights Women Writers
Pulitzer Prize-winner Annette Gordon-Reed headlines this year's fest at the Carver Museum and Cultural Center
DAILY Books  June 25, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...Presidential scholar Annette Gordon-Reed first came to acclaim with Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings: An American Controversy, which explored not just the long-rumored affair between Jefferson and Hemings but also the history of scholarship about the pair – how authors have historically ignored, denied, and denigrated evidence of a long-term relationship between the president and his slave. (DNA evidence now confirms Hemings and Jefferson had at least one child together.) In her 2008 book, The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family, Gordon-Reed circles back to the couple and broadens her scope to trace a multigenerational exploration of black and white relations in Jefferson's household and the still-new America at large..."

No Room at the Health Care Inn
State policies endangering women's lives in the Valley
DAILY News  November 12, 2013, by Jordan Smith
"...Because of geographic isolation, immigration status, and/or socioeconomic status, women in the RGV in need of health care have long been vulnerable to the whims of state lawmakers, and thanks to the extreme policy decisions made over the last several years, have become even more disenfranchised, the report authors argue. In 2011, lawmakers slashed by two-thirds the roughly $100 million biennial budget to fund access to family planning and preventive reproductive health care and imposed a three-tiered funding system for the remaining roughly $38 million, steering funds away from dedicated family planning clinics..."

Film Review  February 19, 1993, by Marc Savlov
"...This exhaustive documentary on the life of Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner feels more like an errant PBS special than full-fledged cinematic documentary: despite its larger-than-life subject, it's a small screen effort. Produced, oddly enough by the team of David Lynch and Mark Frost, Heath's take on the man who made “bunny” a household word and introduced several generations of young American males to “the girl next door,” is full of tantalizing tidbits, from Hef's early Dexedrine abuse to comedian/activist Dick Gregory's wry observation on the Playboy Mansion's nightly buffet: “I didn't realize that I was black and poor until I saw that buffet.” At its peak in the early to mid-Sixties, Playboy was publishing not only pictures of some of the most beautiful women in the world, but also the written work of Alex Haley, Malcolm X, and ground-breaking fiction by such authors as Ray Bradbury, Charles Beaumont, Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce..."

Cheri
Another dangerous liaison, this one based on the Colette novella, reunites director Stephen Frears and star Michelle Pfeiffer.

Film Review  June 26, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...But it isn't until their forced separation, when Chéri allows his mother to arrange a marriage for him, that the true depths of Chéri and Léa’s feelings for each other emerge – complex feelings colored by real-world concerns of practicality, propriety, and the tragic mismatch of their birthdates (and what a pleasure to watch a romantic drama in which the recognition of love, the simple statement of fact, doesn’t mark the end-reel waltz into ever-after). This is sensual, cerebral, and surprisingly weighty stuff, which should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been following the careers of Frears, critically neglected, perhaps, because he’s so hard to pin down (good luck tracking a CV that’s gone from My Beautiful Laundrette to beautiful Grifters and The Queen in a public relations crisis), and his screenwriter, Christopher Hampton, who can add Colette to the list of authors – Graham Greene, Ian McEwan, Joseph Conrad – he’s done right by..."

Film Review  November 20, 1998, by Steve Davis
"...Purportedly a seriocomic contemplation on a civilization that's lost its way, the movie jabs at America's fascination with its false idols without ever hitting its target. It's little more than a series of tableaux in which supermodels, film stars, best-selling authors, television personalities, and other “who's who” are offered up as golden calves worshipped at the altar of popular culture, as objects to be disdained, ridiculed, and clichéd in the guise of a higher calling..."

Working Girls
What do the eight films in the Austin Film Society's latest free series "Dance, Girl, Dance: Women Directors of the 70s and 80s" have in common? They are all works by inherently feminist filmmakers, and the chronological order of the series tracks the growth of American feminist thought during these two decades.
Screens Story  May 18, 2001, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...So what is it that we're supposed to find when we group women film directors together as a category for investigation? Are we looking for a unifying aesthetic or a commonality of experience expressed on the screen? If we're looking for signs of female nurturing, rebellion, or whatever, it's likely that we can find -- or shape -- evidence to fit our formulas. And even if we do identify certain tendencies, can it be fair to generalize across an entire sex? Is this not only unfair to women and men, whose multiplicity of traits and perspectives are the keys to their artistic visions, but also unfair to the works they create? On the surface, directors like A-Listed Penny Marshall and experimentalist Yvonne Rainer seem to have as little in common as artists Georgia O'Keeffe and Yoko Ono or authors Gertrude Stein and Agatha Christie...."
