Isaac and I got to see Frances Ha last night, and a Q&A with Director Noah Baumbach and his co-writer and star, Greta Gerwig. Isaac and I both really liked it, and I was so happy to see it on the big screen. Greta Gerwig was awesome and her co-star Mickey Sumner (yes, Sting’s daughter) was so so good.
my picture’s up on the Urban blog for the Hattie Stewart event a couple months ago. Read more about her and her work here.
but Isaac DID ask me recently if I thought everything was:) I only sweat the small stuff….which means more stuff:)
love this song.
and so of course there’s all these cute pictures of Greta Gerwig wearing Band of Outsiders on the internet.
was the COOLEST.
She grew up in Milwaukee and graduated from the University of Wisconsin (this is a cool-girl pedigree if I’ve ever
seen lived it), and she wrote some of the best children’s books ever, like my favorite, The Westing Game
The Mysterious Disappearance of Leon (I mean Noel)
The Tattooed Potato and Other Clues, and Figgs & Phantoms.
She also did all the graphic design and illustration for these books, and, as I just learned today, she designed other book covers as well, including one of the most iconic: this awesome Wrinkle In Time cover.
The University of Wisconsin has the Westing Game Manuscript...something to check out the next time I’m there.
The UW site also has more info about Raskin than anywhere else I’ve seen online. She died in the early 80s, and her daughter runs a foundation to help cats.
