Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy by Amy Ratcliffe

It is impossible to overstate the impact Star Wars and the women in the galaxy far, far away had on my life. When Princess Leia raised her face in defiance of Darth Vader, my little girl heart swelled. A woman could be a princess and a badass; there was no need to choose. Since then the Star Wars universe has expanded to include many more powerful women. I can’t wait to dig into this beautiful homage to women’s strength. - Ivy

In Pieces by Sally Field

Unlike some celebrity memoirs that focus on art and fame, actress Sally Field’s memoir is much more personal, and includes her life before she was famous. She reveals that as a child, she was sexually abused by her stepfather and talks about how that shaped her decisions regarding her partnerships, which roles she took, and even how she mothered. As an artist, she was drawn to the roles that “spoke of outrage,” but in writing her memoir, you can feel the connection that Field has found with herself. - S.M.C.

Live Cinema and Its Technique by Francis Ford Coppola

One of the living masters, Francis Ford Coppola intends to turn us toward the future in Live Cinema—a fusion of film and television already being shown (such as Grease Live!) and movie theater broadcasts of opera, ballet, and theater. Although Coppola wrote this as a critical manual of a burgeoning form, he also shares insights about film overall and draws on anecdotes and stories from his own life. A must for the film nerd. - Jocelyn
