2 Bitching [MultiFormat]
by Marion Meade
  In the early 1970s, the national conversation regarding feminism was very different. Public discussions of womanhood--single life, marriage, workplace harassment, rights, gripes--were often channeled through movement spokeswomen and always refracted through the lens of talking to men about men. Little was shared about the chats happening behind closed doors where everyday women talked to women without the threat of men listening in. But, all that changed with the book BITCHING. Originally publi... more info>> (Published: 1973)

3 Buster Keaton: Cut to the Chase [MultiFormat]
by Marion Meade
  An American icon, Joseph Frank "Buster" Keaton is easily acknowledged as one of the greatest filmmakers in early cinema and beyond. His elaborate slapstick made audiences scream with laughter.

"Buster" made his name as a child of vaudeville, thrown around the stage by his father in a cartoon pantom... more info>> (Published: 1995)

4 Free Woman: The Life and Times of Victoria Woodhull [MultiFormat]

5 Madame Blavatsky: The Woman Behind the Myth [MultiFormat]
by Marion Meade
  Recklessly brilliant, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky scandalized her 19th century world with a controversial new religion that tried to synthesize Eastern and Western philosophies. If her contemporaries saw her as a freak, a charlatan, and a snake oil salesman, she viewed herself as a special person born for great things. She firmly believed that it was her destiny to enlighten the world. Rebelliously breaking conventions, she was the antithesis of a pious religious leader. She cursed, smoked, o... more info>> (Published: 2001)

6 Sybille [MultiFormat]
by Marion Meade
  The beginning of the thirteenth century is a peaceful time in the Languedoc region of southern France. Poetry and the scent of lavender fill the air; sun dapples the rolling hills of vineyards; and religious tolerance is the norm. But, a holy war is sweeping across France, razing cities and forever destroying the peaceful lives of its "heretics." Sybille d'Astarac, the youngest child of the Toulouse family, is born to pampered luxury. One of a few trobairitz (a female troubadour), her youthful ... more info>>

7 The Unruly Life of Woody Allen [MultiFormat]
by Marion Meade
  Writer, director, actor, humorist. Woody Allen stands as one of our era's most celebrated artists. Starting in the 1950s, Allen began crafting a larger-than-life neurotic persona that has since entertained and enlightened millions. In his films, widely thought to be autobiographical explorations of his own comic fears and fixations, Allen carefully controlled the public's view of him as a loveable scamp. But, that all came crashing down the day Mia Farrow found a Polaroid on her mantle. What f... more info>> (Published: 2000)
