Lupe Anguiano Biography, 'Uncompromised', is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2017

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Uncompromised: The Lupe Anguiano Story is now available on Amazon.com. One of America's unsung heroes, Lupe spent her life serving others and following her strong Catholic faith. She spent her childhood picking fruit with her family and, after graduating high school, decided to become a missionary nun. She found herself at odds with the church because she took a literal interpretation of Vatican II, which Pope John XXIII introduced in 1962. 'This Pope was really strong, and in examining the social teachings of the church, made statements that challenged nuns and priests to minister to the people, not asking them to leave religious life, but to get out of their comfort zones and go out and minister to people like Christ did. He told us not to be afraid to be witnesses to what's right and what's wrong. This was a major change for the Roman Catholic Church. Well, that just gave me Wings!' said Lupe. As a habit-wearing nun, Lupe picketed in front of the Cardinal of Los Angeles in 1963 to protest the church's tolerance of the racially discriminatory practice of 'Redlining.' After 15 years, Lupe left the Order to better serve the people. She helped the poor in East LA and developed a teen program for gang members that turned lives around and produced a number of Latino leaders of California. She helped Cesar Chavez with the Great Grape Boycott and so much more. (more...)

BWW Review: Sally Field Stars In Sam Gold's Exquisite Production of THE GLASS MENAGERIE

BWW Review: STATION ELEVEN by Emily St. John Mandel
by Bonnie Lynn Wagner - Mar 10, 2017

There is so much to say about STATION ELEVEN, and so little that can be shared without revealing spoilers. STATION ELEVEN is a book that unfurls slowly, one that introduces you to a multitude of characters and slips all of the puzzle pieces together later. It's interesting that Erin Morgenstern blurbed the novel because in her own debut, THE NIGHT CIRCUS, she also has a way of unfurling the story to move it along. Slowly, softly, but with great impact.
