norma rae -- 8/7/20
on August 7, 2020 at 7:20 am
Today's selection -- from History by Hollywood by Robert Toplin. Norma Rae was an award-winning 1979 film that cemented Sally Field's stardom.

by Grace Ebert on August 7, 2020 at 8:51 pm
As widespread lockdowns swept the globe earlier this year in response to the threat of COVID-19, intimacy became fraught. For artist Käthe Butcher, the loss of an embrace or casual peck on the cheek was incredibly difficult. “The pandemic affected everyone differently.
