Book Review: I know why the caged bird sings

Ms. Angelou does much more than spin a yarn about the early years of her life. Great suffering and terrible injustice is elevated to the highest level of art and beauty. Ms. Angelou’s voice, so pure and so clear, feels stylistically as a story told in the oral tradition and not a mere book.

New film: STEWART UDALL and the Politics of Beauty

New film: STEWART UDALL and the Politics of Beauty is finally in the home stretch; to raise finishing funds, we’ve launched a campaign on Kickstarter. It’s a beautiful campaign, and I know you’ll love it. The page itself is beautiful – we’re very proud - and I can’t wait for you to check it out. There’s also a short new video trailer I think you’ll like.   We hope to complete the film in mid-September and it will premiere in Santa Fe in October.
