NY Book Festival Honors Star Profile

6/26/2007 6:07:00 AM

by Betty Jo Tucker


"Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick" by Betty Jo Tucker received Honorable Mention in the WILD CARD section of the 2007 New York Book Festival.
Sponsored by J.M. Northern Media, the New York Book Festival is designed to bring greater attention to worthy works of literature and grow their cultural impact beyond the grassroots level. Entries are judged according to the author's storytelling ability and the potential of the book to win wider recognition in the publishing industry. Winners in fifteen categories were recognized at an awards ceremony held on June 23.

“I entered my book in the Wild Card section because it’s not a traditional biography and because Susan Sarandon is a kind of wild card herself,” Tucker says. “I’m happy the New York Book Festival judges recognized the book, and I want to thank everyone who made contributions to my analysis of Sarandon’s remarkable film career.”

Why did the passionate and outspoken Sarandon choose acting as a profession? How does she select her roles? What is her acting philosophy? Why does she promote so many social and political causes? How do friends, colleagues and critics rate her work and her movies? Tucker explores all these questions and more in this well-researched book. She also includes an annotated filmography of Sarandon’s movies as well as selected reviews of her key films by a variety of critics.

Motivated by Sarandon’s Oscar-nominated performance in “Lorenzo’s Oil,” Tucker has donated her author royalties from “Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick” to The Myelin Project, a non-profit organization formed to support research on diseases like the one depicted in that inspiring film. “Lorenzo’s Oil,” based on a true story, is about a mother and father who refused to give up when doctors told them there was no hope for their ailing son.

Tucker serves as editor/lead film critic for ReelTalkReviews.com. She hosts “Movie Addict Headquarters” on BlogTalkRadio as well as ReelTalk Radio for the iWRC network and teaches “The Reel Deal: Writing about Movies,” an online course for the LSS School of Writing. Her film reviews also appear on NewsFirst Online as well as in the Colorado Senior Beacon and Omaha Family newspapers.

“Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick,” published by Wheatmark, is available at most online bookstores, including Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and Wheatmark.com as well at your favorite local bookstores.
