His pictures paint a thousand words

(Starts at 14:22)

Los Lobos founding member Louie Pérez has drawn and painted for most of his life and now he has paired his artwork with his song lyrics in a book, "Good Morning Aztlán," that takes its title from one of the songs he co-wrote with bandmate David Hidalgo. Pérez talks with guest host Steven Cuevas about the book, which is scheduled for an Oct. 15 release.

The Woman of a thousand faces (and voices)

(Starts at 1:15)

Sarah Jones is a playwright, performer and activist. She's assembled all her passions and talents into the show, “Sell/Buy/Date.” While the play is technically a one-woman show, Jones performs a variety of characters, all of them connected by a common theme: the sex industry. “Sell/Buy/Date” is built around a series of recorded interviews, replayed decades later in a classroom of the future. The men and women Jones embodies are tied either directly or indirectly to prostitution and pornography. The show is at the Los Angeles LGBT Center through Nov. 3.
