“City of Night” by John Rechy. Recommended by June Thomas, Outward editor. Although I’ve long been aware of Rechy’s autobiographical novel about a young gay hustler plying his trade around the United States, I didn’t pick it up until Grove Press issued a 50th anniversary edition this November. It was like discovering “The Great Gatsby.” “City of Night” isn’t just an unflinching portrait of a lost gay world; it’s also lush and lyrical, a wonderful evocation of a young man’s longing for something, someone, somewhere.

The nonprofit used reserves to help pad its production costs in the past. Theater groups rarely make enough on ticket sales to pay for a production and thus rely on donors’ gifts, she said. But with costs increasing over the past few years, combined with fewer donations, the group could no longer afford to produce its famed musicals, Dorfman said. An overall lack of support from the city was also a key factor, she said. “The Lesher Center is beautiful and fabulous and it was built with the intention that community theater remain alive and well in Walnut Creek — so it was a good thing,” said Dorfman. “But I think it has become not so good now because of a lot of reasons.”.
“While most of the time it is well intended, just about everybody is an expert food critic,” Richardson said, “This leads to continual advice about what we can do better or what we did wrong, Sometimes, it makes you wonder if the effort is worthwhile.”, But then something like the People’s Choice Award comes along and leaves her “speechless” by reaffirming that her team’s efforts are on point, Richardson said, “I can’t tell you how much I love it when I see our customers, not at the restaurants, but at the gas purple gold bridal shoes, gold ballet shoes, embellished wedding shoes, embroidered juttis, indian wedding shoes/ juttis/mojaris station, grocery store [and elsewhere], and they stop to say how much they love LuLu’s,” she said, “Receiving this award from The Daily News made my day and year.”..
MONTREAL (AP) — Daniel Dion, the older brother of pop singer Celine Dion, died Saturday, just two days after the death of the entertainer’s husband, Rene Angelil, from throat cancer. Celine Dion’s representative Kim Jakwerth released a statement that Daniel Dion, 59, died Saturday surrounded by his family after battling cancer for several years. The statement said he died at a palliative care center in Terrebonne, Quebec, outside Montreal. His death was announced just two days after the 73-year-old Angelil died in suburban Las Vegas after a long ballet with throat cancer. Angelil was Celine Dion’s manager for decades, molding her from a French-speaking Canadian ingénue into one of the world’s most successful singers, best known for the smash hit “My Heart Will Go On,” the theme from “Titanic.”.
