BMCM+AC presents a live conversation with Marilyn Chase, author of the newly published biography of artist and BMC alumna Ruth Asawa Everything She Touched: The Life of Ruth Asawa.
Everything She Touched recounts the incredible life of American sculptor Ruth Asawa (1926–2013), a woman who wielded imagination and hope in the face of intolerance and who transformed everything she touched into art. This lively and compelling new book by journalist and author Marilyn Chase is the first biography of this major American artist.
Marilyn Chase is a journalist, author, and teacher. She spent over two decades at the Wall Street Journal, and her previous books include The Barbary Plague: The Black Death in Victorian San Francisco. As a continuing lecturer at U.C. Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, Chase now teaches reporting and writing to a new generation of journalists. She lives in San Francisco.
