Longtime Heights resident praises Eagle reporter

To the editors:
It was very fitting that the Brooklyn Heights Association honored your Mary Frost at its annual meeting. Her coverage of the LICH (Long Island College Hospital's) struggle for survival has been just extraordinary. Her writing is cogent and succinct; her reporting is remarkably thorough and complete; her diligence is as evident as it is commendable. One can only hope her work can receive further honors from her journalist peers -- and that the Brooklyn community can continue to be the beneficiaries of her dedication.

Theatre for a New Audience presents ‘Open Books’

Called “a daring and rigorous historical reinterpretation that defies critical consensus on Artaud” and “profoundly original” by critics, Kimberly Jannarone’s unflinching book “Artaud and His Doubles” (University of Michigan Press, 2012) explores the surprisingly deep and troubling connections between Antonin Artaud’s works and fascism.
