The Eighth Lively Art: Conversations With Painters, Poets, Musicians, and the Wicked Witch of the West
by Wesley Wehr (University of Washington Press) As a young artist and musician Wesley Wehr became a friend and often a confidant of many of the painters, poets, and musicians who lived or worked in the Northwest in the 1950s and 1960s. Drawing on his journals, Wehr provides an engagingly written, intriguing, and informative series of vignettes of painters Mark Tobey, Pehr Hallsten, Helmi Juvonen, Guy Anderson, and Morris Graves; photographer Imogen Cunningham; gallery owner Zoe Dusanne; poets Theodore Roethke, Richard Selig, Elizabeth Bishop, and Leonie Adams; philosopher Susanne Langer; musicians Ernest Bloch and Berthe Poncy Jacobson; and actor Margaret Hamilton.

Multi/Intercultural Conversations: A Reader edited by Shirley R. Steinberg and Joe L. Kincheloe (Counterpoints Vol. 94: Peter Lang) brings together voices from all over the world in the examination of critical pedagogy and the politics of identity in regard to viewing education as a global endeavor. The authors are teachers, parents, professors, and writers engaged in projects of social justice and education with the desire to open a conversation between both students and teachers about education and civil justice in the new millennium.
