H ow nice to see an alien movie that likes to have fun. No battles, no social commentary, just some guys on the road being funny. It could be your standard buddy comedy. One of the buddies just happens to not be from around here, but who cares.
'Earnest' lives up to pre-show buzz
web-posted Thursday, March 24, 2011
The audience that gathered last Thursday evening to see “The Importance of Being Earnest” filled the Perseverance Theatre lobby and spilled outside, delaying entrance to those who arrived a little after 7 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. curtain. The buzz sparked by people who had already seen the show in its first week quickly ran through the waiting crowd, and we were soon making more noise than the tavern party celebrating St. Patrick’s Day across the street. I skeptically listened to repeat viewers telling strangers, “It’s a great show! You’ll love it!”

Get to know people from all walks of life — new biographies are on the shelves at the public libraries. Biographies are mostly shelved under the Dewey number 921, but you’ll also find interesting multi-person biographies in 920; for instance, the story of Julia Child and her friend, Avis DeVoto. Browse the libararies’ collections or zero in on the person you’re interested in using the catalogue.

Therapy, art and adventure in 'Marwencol'
web-posted Thursday, March 24, 2011
Meanwhile, in Marwencol, the S.S. finally invaded the town after hearing rumors of it. Mark Hogencamp, protector of the inhabitants and proprietor of the local bar, is kidnapped, tortured and held prisoner in the church. In one version of the story, the women, sick of waiting for the men to come up with a plan, burst into the chapel and take out all of the guards. In another version, Deja Thoris, the Belgian witch of Marwencol, uses her time machine to come to the rescue.

Nationally acclaimed author and frequent New Yorker contributor Susan Orlean will join Alaska journalist Julia O’Malley for an onstage conversation, “To Tell the Truth,” in Anchorage on April 1. How does one capture the extraordinary within the ordinary? Which places make the best stories? In what sense are all stories journeys? O’Malley will moderate the discussion with reference to Orlean’s books “The Orchid Thief,” “The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup,” and “My Kind of Place: Travel Stories from a Woman Who’s Been Everywhere.” A question and answer session and book-signing will follow. The event, presented by the 49 Alaska Writing Center, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Auditorium. There is no charge for 49 Writers and museum members; a $5 donation is suggested for non-members.
