Author of 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape' to Donate to Immune Deficiency Foundation
by BWW News Desk - Sep 27, 2016

Miranda N. Prather, author of 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape,' will donate 20% of all sales from 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape' in October 2016 to the Immune Deficiency Foundation. Prather currently serves as the Assistant Center Manager at the Frederick, Maryland, Biomat USA, a Grifols company that collects plasma donations. After donation, Grifols converts the plasma to life-saving medicines for a variety of patients, including those with primary immunodeficiency diseases. 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape,' published by Shoofly View, tells The Life story of a blue-collar racehorse who overcame a devastating illness to survive and inspire thousands around the globe who were facing their own struggles and illnesses. The book features playful writing and delightful pictures, by Kentucky artist Hayley Mullins, that bring the tale of Blue Blue Sea to life. Blue Blue Sea was no American Pharoah, but he became a hero just the same. To learn more and follow Blue Blue Sea's world visit: https://www.facebook.com/BlueBlueSeaOTTB. Miranda N. Prather was born in Texas and grew up in Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky. The first horse she recalls following was Seattle Slew, who was born the same year she was, but it was Alydar that was her first horse racing love (and Blue Blue Sea's great-grandsire). During her time in Kentucky, she took horseback riding lessons and owned an off-track Thoroughbred named Beble. The Immune Deficiency Foundation is the national patient organization dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of persons with primary immunodeficiency diseases through advocacy, education and research. The foundation says, 'THINK ZEBRA!' This refers to an old medical saying: 'When you hear hoof beats, think horses, not zebras' and are taught to focus on the likeliest possibilities when making a diagnosis, not the unusual ones. Indeed, those with primary immunodeficiency diseases are the zebras of the medical world. Shoofly View seeks to give authors honest feedback, and if an author presents a well-written, interesting book, the chance at publication. In late 2015, they published 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape,' their first book. They are currently looking at other book projects and plan an online journal to highlight the best in writing, art and photography. (more...)

BWW Review: HOLLYWOOD REVISITED at Oxnard Civic Auditorium
by Cary Ginell - Sep 26, 2016

You've seen them. Gaudy costumes worn by Hollywood and Broadway stars, preserved and on display in museums and galleries. It's a great way to witness first-hand the trappings of the pretend, magical worlds brought to us on celluloid, television, and the live stage. But when you see those famous outfits, hanging stiffly on mannequins, you get the sense something is missing. It's as if they were embalmed mummies from ancient Egypt, beautiful but lifeless. That's what makes a show like Hollywood Revisited, which played Sunday afternoon at the Oxnard Civic Auditorium, so valuable and different as a unique piece of show business entertainment. (more...)
