Bernhardt, Elizabeth - Professor, Drama
The Power of Pretend
Publication Date: Sword and Swan, 2020
Elizabeth Bernhardt loves Jesus. She also loves acting. But marrying the two has been a confusing endeavor. Even after trying to "make it" in New York and earning a graduate degree in theatre, the path still seemed unclear. As she continued to struggle with the boundary-blurring, temptations, and emotional struggles of the actor's life, Elizabeth knew there must be a better way.Part memoir, part research project, part Bible study, The Power of Pretend: An Actor's Struggle to Unite Faith & Work is Elizabeth's vulnerable invitation to wrestle alongside her as she seeks to take both her faith and her work seriously. It's a book for Christians and non-Christians, artists and non-artists. Asked with equal parts introspection and humor, investigation and poetry, The Power of Pretend contains a challenge for every reader: Why do you do what you do?

Letters of Roy Bedichek by
Call Number: QH31.B38 A35 1985
Publication Date: Austin, Texas: University of Texas Press, 2009
"Although Roy Bedichek published less than his more famous friends J. Frank Dobie and Walter Prescott Webb, he wrote voluminously and, many say, with more distinction than the others. In addition to his four published books, Bedichek produced a great number of letters through which he communicated his broad interests and deep learning to a wide variety of correspondents. Prefaced by a biographical sketch, this volume presents a collection of Bedichek letters that give us an insight into his literary and creative development."

By Way of Water by
Publication Date: Blue Hen-Penguin, 2002; Santa Fe Writers Project, 2013.
"Struggling to feed their children in an unforgiving California forest when all the logging jobs are gone, Jake and Dale Colby make personal vows that can only make matters worse. Jake will not accept help-from the government or his neighbors-and Dale won't allow him to hunt. She believes her faith will sustain them. He believes in nothing. But one other member of the family makes a promise to herself. Seven-year-old Justy believes that she alone can hold the family together, even when Jake's violence surfaces again. Narrated by this gentle, even wise young girl, this moving story reveals a family's most volatile emotions and private aspirations, like old-growth trees through an inland fog. With a clear insight and the deepest empathy, young Justy isolates the stark realities around her, even as she dreams with her mother of a safe world that only God can promise. By the final pages of Charlotte Gullick's powerful debut novel, we discover-along with Justy-how to heal the lesions that appear when obligation is delivered against human nature."

Diamond Plate by
Publication Date: OBSOLETE!, 2012.
"Joe is an Austin writer with Michigan roots- his style conveys the laid back warmth of Texas-weird, with the meticulous skill of a Detroit machinist. As a hotrodder and car customizer, he understands the Zen of the maker. As a community college writing teacher, he understands the struggle to transcend the blue-collar environment, to customize everyday words, to feel the rush as a poem goes down the track, dialed-in and banging on all eight cylinders...'I am proud to present Joe's second book, "Diamond Plate", as the first title published under the new OBSOLETE! Publishing imprint. It represents the next phase in our evolution as a publisher, and Joe brings to the table an expanded range and a more experimental- and sometimes even playful- approach to the writing. I think it's a perfect first outing for us as a book publisher.It has been my great pleasure to work with Joe on this book, and I hope it will be the first of many. After spending time with Joe's poems, I know that readers will look forward seeing much more from W. Joe Hoppe". Rich Dana, Publisher, OBSOLETE!
