New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Marjorie Liu is best known for her fiction and comic books. She teaches comic book writing at MIT, and she leads a class on Popular Fiction at the Voices of Our Nation (VONA) workshop.
Ms. Liu is a highly celebrated comic book writer. Her extensive work with Marvel includes the bestselling Dark Wolverine series, NYX: No Way Home, X-23, and Black Widow: The Name of the Rose.

Her newest work is Monstress is an original, creator-owned comic book series with Japanese artist (and X-23 collaborator) Sana Takeda. The series is set in an alternate, matriarchal 1920’s Asia and follows a girl’s struggle to survive the trauma of war. With a cast of girls and monsters and set against a richly imagined aesthetic of art deco-inflected steampunk, the first issue was an instant hit.

That Alan or Aylan Kurdi or Shenu died tragically from drowning on 2 September 2015 at the age of three is not in doubt. The images of his body lying on a beach at the south-west tip of the Bodrum peninsula, Turkey, and its recovery by a Turkish gendarme swiftly spread round the world, igniting international outrage about the human cost the migrant crisis (invaders), who are engulfing Europe and the West, is creating. BUT there is much more to this story...

Today I have the pleasure of talking with Zoe and Grace from WomanKraft Art Center in Tucson, AZ. This center was established in 1974 and according to their website is the place where "dreams you didn't even know you had come true." WomanKraft Art Center was founded in 1974 to claim, validate, and empower women artists and other under represented groups.
Kraft with a “K” means power in German. In 1974 the founders of WomanKraft chose this name to claim, validate, and empower the cultural contributions of women and incorporate this non-profit Arts Organization.
In 1979 WomanKraft started the Community Artist Project and received Comprehensive Education and Training Federal Money to send artists out into the community to work with special populations, such as prisons, mental institutions, special schools, senior citizen centers, and other social service places.

The host Lee looks at the aftermath of Paris and most importantly what defense precautions to take to protect our citizens from a similar attack. Does Obama have an incorrect understanding of ISIS and what to target? Is slowing down ISIS in Northen Iraq and Syria something to boast about OR do we need to redirect our efforts in improving intelligence on those already here in may be planning an attack in conjunction with ISIS?

A real treat for me this week, and I think informative for all of you as well. We'll be interviewing Michael Cicerone, who worked in Texas State Senator Brian Birdwell's office this past legislative session as a Policy Analyst to the Senator.
Michael played a key role for the Convention of States Texas team in Austin, as our real insider, able to access key staffers for other legislators when we could not make headway.
