Books & Beats: March 12, 2016
In Innocents and Others (Scribner) by Dana Spiotta, a young woman pushes her documentary filmmaking as far as she can. Betsy Burton says, “In one sense ‘Portrait of the Artist as a Young Woman,’ Innocents and Others is a discerning evocation of the reality of being young and female—one all women should read.”
Then, Austen Diamond’s lined up a few choice concerts—all at The State Room, all with talented string musicians.
Music heard on this Books & Beats:
1: “The God of Loss” by Darlingside
2: Roosevelt Collier performing in 2009
3: “Hey Ya!,” written by André 3000, performed by The Portland Cello Project
