    "UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour" has been named best nonfiction book of 2017 by Devil's Kitchen Literary Festival. 

    UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour, follows the unmasked DONNA KAZ, and the masked APHRA BEHN through their often surprising 25 year journey. In a braided narrative that flips between 1977 and 1997, Donna Kaz describes, with an ironic and humorous voice, what it was like go from being on the arm of William Hurt and an insider on the sets of movies like Altered States and Bodyheat, to an anonymous outsider donning a scary gorilla mask to protest sexism at Broadway's Tony Awards. Donna Kaz hobnobs with actress Kathleen Turner and director Lawrence Kasden, while Aphra Behn organizes sticker campaigns focused at the big New York City theatres which produce season after season of only plays by white male playwrights. When the Roundabout Theatre's toilet stalls (in both women's and men's rooms) are plastered with Guerrilla Girls' stickers stating: In this theatre, the taking of photographs, the use of a recording device and the production of plays by women is strictly prohibited - the Roundabout announces their next season will include two plays by women. Aphra and the Guerrilla Girls take all the credit and go on to create comedic art and theater that blasts the blatant sexism of the theater world while proving feminists are funny at the same time.

    I'm excited to be giving my third TEDx Talk this October at TEDx LATI!

    Based on FIBERS  - a play inspired by the literal sewing that enabled my grandmother to survive the death camps, as well as the act of threading my  family’s unfinished stories into a seamless narrative – a tapestry that reunites relatives across space, time, and understandings.

    For those of us that LOVE Joseph Campbell and the archetypal hero's journey (where is it NOT?)  I wanted to share an exciting update - I gave my second TEDx Talk last February at VCU, and it's taken a few months, but I finally found out that the talk is going to be live next week!  In the meantime, they gave me the first three minutes that I wanted to share.  I'll share the rest when it's up on the TEDx site. In the meantime, I'd love to hear your thoughts...the rest of the talk might go in a bit of an unexpected direction - so stay tuned - enjoy...and "Welcome to the Greatest Adventure of Your Life!"

    Rover Dramawerks in Plano, Texas, again hosts a "365 Women a Year" festival of short plays, including "The Anesthetic Was Psalms," my short drama inspired by Jane Todd Crawford (1763-1842), who had the first ovariotomy -- and lived another 32 years. According to Rover Dramawerks, the focus of the festival is to "write and present plays about extraordinary women, bring women back into the social consciousness, and plant seeds of her story around the country." Artistic Director of Rover, Carol Rice, is a passionate advocate of the "365" project. Tickets are $16-22. Visit the website for details.
