The Circle  Friday, August 11th starting at 7 pm. With delicious food from Tello’s Grill and Cafe! Rated PG-13

 Based on the novel by Dave Eggers. “When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.”

Ray Harryhausen, Special Effects Titan

This is the definitive documentary about Ray Harryhausen. Aside from interviews with the great man himself, shot over five years, there are also interviews and tributes from Vanessa Harryhausen, Tony Dalton, Randy Cook, Peter Jackson, Nick Park, Phil Tippet, Peter Lord, Terry Gilliam, Dennis Muren, Rick Baker, John Landis, Ken Ralston, Guillermo Del Toro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Robert Zemeckis, James Cameron, Steven Spielberg and many more. For the first time Ray and the Foundation have provided unprecedented access to film all aspects of the collection including models, artwork and miniatures as well as Ray’s private study, where he designed most of his creations, and his workshop where he built them. In addition the documentary will use unseen footage of tests and experiments found during the clearance of the LA garage. Never before has so much visual material been used in any previous documentary about Ray. This definitive production will not only display a huge part of the unique … Written by The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation

When it comes to careers, I think you can call me “ambidextrous.” I’ve gone from journalism to criminal prosecution…and now I’m very happy doing both!

If you’d told me fifteen years ago that I’d be spending three months in a body cast after a riding accident, then ditch freelance writing in favor of going to law school, argue before the state supreme court five times, start wearing spike heels and then start my own website…I’d have called the cops and suggested a nice stay in a padded room for you.

But it all happened, and after that dramatic career change from journalism to law, a few years later I found I needed desperately to get back to the keyboard. I love my job as a prosecutor, but to be honest, legal briefs do torture and violence to the English language. And there are times that if streams of more creative words don’t escape from my fingertips, the top of my head may just leave my body.

So I started writing essays on my own website, “Running with Stilettos,” three years ago. Some won awards, some got reprinted elsewhere, and eventually some made it into my first book of the same name that I published in 2008. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, some will probably get you to say “hey, I’ve been there, done that!!” Dating, power tools, shoe shopping, chocolate addiction, friendship, tragedies, celebrations and the melancholy that comes with kids growing up and growing away, they’re all in there. And don’t forget the view from the back of a Harley, or going on “spring break” for the first time at the age of…ahem…nevermind!

Since that first book, I’ve published two more–“Heck on Heels” (2009) and “Fabulous in Flats” (2011). “Heck” brought home an Indie Excellence Award for Inspiration, and “Fabulous” was named 2011’s Published Book of the Year by the Florida Writers Association. Both of these were named “Book of the Year” finalists by ForeWord reviews.
