  • Mark Twain’s Last Stunt (East Bay Express) – “Suppressed for one hundred years, Autobiography of Mark Twain has become one of UC Berkeley’s biggest literary events of all time.”
  • Bridge to Nowhere (Silicon Valley Metro) – “Sarah Palin comes to San Jose and insults Michelle Obama as well as the memory of Pat Tillman”
