Well, that has to be a record (at least for me) – appearing in local newspapers two days in one week!
This article — A Professor, Female Screenwriters and a Monkee Walk Into a Lecture … — is about my upcoming Noontime Faculty talk on the history of Female Screenwriters for the Pollak Library at Cal State Fullerton. They take the time to mention the talk I gave last year about my book on The Monkees, which is a bit sad since what makes the book topical this week is the loss of Peter Tork.
But the beauty of both my books (I hope) is the fact that they bring much needed attention to writers and performers who weren’t necessarily lauded in their own time. —Rosanne
You know how you are going to lecture on topics from your new book and then something happens in the big old world that touches on your previous book?
Such is happening to Rosanne Welch, who is a writer and adjunct professor at Cal State Fullerton, Cal Poly Pomona, Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut and Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri.
She is scheduled to give one of the Faculty Noon Time Talks in CSUF’s Pollock Library from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, March 5. These events are based on faculty research, which in Welch’s case is partly encapsulated in her most recent book, When Women Wrote Hollywood: Essays on Female Screenwriters in the Early Film Industry (McFarland & Co., 2018).
