Novelist Anne Enright Speaks in San Diego (tags)

Irish novelist Anne Enright came to the San Diego Public Library October 10 to present "The Forgotten Waltz," her first book since her previous novel "The Gathering" won the prestigious Man Booker Prize in 2007. Enright talked about the pressures of sudden fame, how she combines writing with being a stay-at-home mom, and the roller-coaster ride of the Irish economy from boom in 2002 to bust in 2007. Though "The Forgotten Waltz" is not literally a political allegory, Enright says she meant it largely as a metaphoric portrayal of Ireland during its boom and bust years.

On LAUSD's urgent need to pressure CNCA to revise the CRES #14 charter (tags)

When LAUSD V.P. Flores awarded CRES #14 to Camino Nuevo Charter Academy (CNCA) against the wishes and explicit votes of the Echo Parque community, and against the express recommendation of the Superintendent, she promised she would address the grievously problematic issues with CNCA's proposal regarding their exclusive and inflexible language program. Instead, nothing has been done to resolve this major point of contention between the corporate charter school operator and the community they will soon occupy.

A Meanness in This World (tags)

The January 8 shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and murder of federal judge John Roll and five other people in Tucson, Arizona has been blamed on a lone nut, and both wings of the corporate media — center-Right and far-Right — have fallen over each other to absolve the ultra-Rightists of talk radio, Fox News and the Tea Party of blame for the alleged shooter’s actions. Nonsense. Not only did Sarah Palin’s Web page specifically “target” Congressmember Giffords for defeat last April — a piece of hysterical rhetoric Giffords called Palin out on at the time — but the radical Right’s incessant propaganda on talk radio and Fox News, with its ceaseless calls not only to defeat but “eliminate” its “enemies,” created a national climate that ensured that the killer’s madness took the form it did and his delusions led him to attack two individuals that had already been the targets of radical-Right bullying and harassment.

“Nommogeneity” Explores African-American Poetry and Culture (tags)

It took two years to make and it's only 32 minutes long, but Terrence Stubbs’ film “Nommogeneity” is a powerful portrayal of cutting-edge African-American poetry and culture that's well worth seeing. Stubbs, a former stand-up comedian turned film student and TV producer, landed the legendary Amiri Baraka (shown reading his provocative 9/11 poem) as well as many younger African-American poets strongly influenced by him. The film — whose title comes from the twin gods in African mythology who brought humanity the gifts of language and writing — shows young poets working in a politically and socially conscious vein instead of writing “love jones” poems or odes to gangsterism and conspicuous consumption.

Women's Art Exhibit and Writer Series (tags)

"Le Deuxieme Sexe?" Women's Art Exhibit and Writer Series at Carlotta's Passion Fine Art in Eagle Rock Chicano Studies, Women Studies, and Mexican Art History. Reina Prado's link to Calaca Press: http://www.calacapress.com/reinaaprado.html Judith Terzi Shiny Things Make Things Come Back (2002) was Ms. Terzi's first chapbook, a collection inspired, in part, by her mother's five-year long, see-saw adventure with severe vascular dementia. In her second collection, Lightning Bugs Don't Travel Westward (2004), while a few pieces relate to this illness, most are reflections on nature, transitions, institutions, or on the general political and social dementia of our times. Ms. Terzi's work has appeared in various print and online publications, including The Teacher's Voice (2005), the anthology, An Eye for an Eye Makes the Whole World Blind: Poets on 9/11, Moondance (Moondance.org) . Ms. Terzi says, "While most of my poetry is in English, I do enjoy writing in French and Spanish as well. My CD, Wings of the Andes, is a blend of old and new poems. I hold an M.A. in French Literature and am a career teacher, having taught many different subject matters at every level of instruction. The highlights of my career have been teaching English and French at an American School in Algiers, Algeria; writing at California State University, Los Angeles; and French language and literature at Polytechnic School in Pasadena, California." Reviewer Comment "Judy has been quick in sensing the rhythm or beat of a poem. She can tell when a line has lost the rhythm. She has been showing a keen interest in correct usage of English language...When she recites poetry, her posture could be improved, however; she drops her head forward, and a bit to one side. She seems to enjoy creative work. - G. Metzner, Ms. Terzi's third grade teacher Kathleen Tyler Kathleen Tyler's poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in numerous journals including Runes, Solo, Margie, Coe Review, Visions International, Diner, and Poetry Motel. She currently teaches English at a public school in Los Angeles. Some poets who she especially likes are Marsha de la O, Larissa Szporluk, Yusef Komunyakaa, H.D., and Garcia Lorca. Kathleen's first book of poetry, The Secret Box, is forthcoming in September. Reviewer Comments The Secret Box is full of gorgeous and dangerous poems; poems with the flickering intensity of film noir; poems in which violence or tenderness -- or both -- might erupt at any moment, and do. I admire Kathleen Tyler's craft and her courage. These poems are gutsy and lyrical, risky and magical; they speak of, and to, a dark and beautiful world. - Cecilia Woloch Negotiating terrain that is both provocative and revealing, these poems leave the senses singed with formidable hope and startling clarity. - Jawanza Dumisani

A Disturbing Presence (tags)

Joy Lee Rutter A Disturbing Presence Press Release Contact: Joy Rutter Phone: (603) 539-7023 E-mail: joylee52@aol.com PO Box 326 Center Ossipee, NH 03814 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Author will send book for review at request. Please specify if PDF file is acceptable. New Hampshire Woman becomes author CENTER OSSIPEE, NH-Joy Lee Rutter started writing her first book on an impulse. Now, it is her passion. Born in Michigan, she came to New Hampshire by way of Florida. Rutter sacrificed college to marry immediately after graduating from high school. Five sons later, with her marriage beginning to crumble, she began keeping a journal after the birth of her youngest, to raise her spirits, and maintain her sense of humor. Then she began writing “tongue-in-cheek” humorous essays. Rutter’s first novel, A Disturbing Presence, became available September 1, 2003. It was not planned. It came into being following a zany conversation with her stepdaughter. Captivated by the ideas that the conversation prompted, Rutter started writing. Five months later, she had completed a first draft. In September, just one year from the time she began writing, the book is ready for distribution to booksellers, nationwide. Even Rutter is stunned by the acceptance of her first novel’s publication, on her first try. The author proudly describes A Disturbing Presence, as “something that has not been done in print or in the movies. It’s a little bit strange, but it’s filled with quite a bit of humor, too,” she says. “Folks who have read the book tell me they couldn’t put it down. At the very least, I think A Disturbing Presence is a compelling novel with an unusual, thought-provoking theme,” Rutter says. She already is working on her next book. Synopsis: This modern-day mystery takes place in a small town in NH. An elegant manor appears normal enough. You enter, look around at the widow's artwork & then walk into the private study of the late Eric McDuggal. Of course, you do not expect to see McDuggal sitting in an antique rocker. He is dead. What were the motives behind his bizarre death wish? While the house pets wreak havoc against the embalmed corpse, his widow remains in a self-imposed limbo, reluctant to find the answers. The disturbing presence of the hideous display causes her life to collapse into nightmares & apathy. An unlikely friendship between the taxidermist & widow develop; little do they know that his probing into McDuggal's background eventually leads to the discovery of a shocking childhood trauma. A Disturbing Presence has all of the ingredients for a great page-turner! Mystery, light horror, and humor, and eventually, romance. Title: A Disturbing Presence Author: Joy Lee Rutter Publication Date: September 2003 Publisher: America House of Publishing ISBN: 1-4137-0113-2 Item Status: Active Record Binding Format: Soft Cover Pages: 232 Retail Price: $19.95
