NEVER DOUBT I LOVE by Richard Rennix: A silver-haired, Shakespeare-obsessed, freak-show of an English teacher for whom it is entirely impossible to communicate without gesticulating. I wish he had been my English teacher. Richard lives in the middle of an orange grove with his stunningly beautiful amazonian wife of 46 years.
THE FIFTH by Morgan Flannery: Our beloved Morgan has recently relocated to the other coast. She’s a sound-engineering, forever-learning, personal-story-writing independent type of woman who can enjoy a good Oreo milkshake, a long walk in the foothills of Ojai or the view from her new apartment in New York City.
DROUGHT by Lily Brown: A recently married, recently graduated, bilingual, feminist, activist, Bennington Girl who has her sights set on Hollywood, a rescue puppy and a sensible commuter car. Born at the Ojai hospital -- Lily is the ultimate hometown girl, co-producer of The Townies Podcast -- and the very-best, most-amazing-daughter that this Mommy could hope for.
LETTER by Saul Gordillo: A Peruvian-descended, hot-headed, highly-articulated pioneer for human rights and anti-bullshittery. Saul has been in my class since he was a surly-ass 12-year-old boy. He has been fearlessly flinging is poetry and beats across the county ever since.
MAN LESSONS by Doug Green: A full-on genius -- non-profit-consulting guru/social justice icon by day and monster storyteller by night. Doug and his spectacular and extensive collection of bow-ties are the most sought after resources in all of Ventura County.
THIS LIFE OF MINE by Kathleen Hellwitz: Miss Kathleen has been officially dubbed, “Front Row Lady” for her delightful propensity to sit front-row-center at any arts related anything in the realm of this tiny town. Aside from having been EVERYWHERE and seen EVERYTHING -- Kathleen is the kind of sassy, well-read, well-traveled, bra-burning grandma we should all aspire to be.
