It Happened Today: March 11

Christopher Rice (born March 11, 1978): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3496026.html

Christopher Travis Rice (born March 11, 1978) is an American author. Rice has written five best-selling novels: A Density of Souls, The Snow Garden, Light Before Day, Blind Fall, and his latest book, The Moonlit Earth, which was published in April 2010 by Scribner. In A Density of Souls, there's murder, suicide, and madness at the heart of this rather clumsycoming-of-age story, which focuses on the youthful friendship of Stephen Conlin, Meredith Ducote, Greg Darby, and Brandon Charbonnet.

David Carroll (July 30, 1950 - March 11, 1992): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3496251.html

The musical won 5 Tony Awards®; Carroll earned both Tony® and Drama Desk nominations for his performance. He was in the process of making the original cast recording in 1992 when he died, at age 41, of a pulmonary embolism.

When LaChapelle was 17 years old, he met Andy Warhol, who offered him his first job as a photographer at Interview magazine. Warhol reportedly told LaChapelle "Do whatever you want. Just make sure everybody looks good." His photographs of celebrities in Interview garnered positive attention, and before long he was shooting for a variety of top editorial publications.

Dora Carrington (March 29, 1893 – March 11, 1932): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4252815.html

Giles Lytton Strachey was a British writer & critic. Dora Carrington was a British painter and decorative artist, remembered for her association with the Bloomsbury Group. Though Strachey spoke openly about his homosexuality with his Bloomsbury friends, it was not widely publicised until the late 1960s, in a biography by Michael Holroyd. In 1921 Carrington agreed to marry Ralph Partridge, not for love but to secure the 3-way relationship. She committed suicide two months after Strachey's death.

June Arnold & Parke Bowman: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3496609.html

June Arnold immersed herself in the rich cultural diversity of the Village. There she established her feminist as well as lesbian identity. Her first novel, Applesauce, dealt in part with her marriage and her difficulty in fulfilling the traditional roles. Arnold also began a relationship with Parke Bowman, a lawyer who became her long-time partner. Bowman and Arnold together with novelist Bertha Harris and political theorist Charlotte Bunch, founded Daughters Inc., Press in 1973.

Kevin Oldham (August 30, 1960 - March 11, 1993): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4253377.html

According to his companion, Stephen Rotondaro, Kevin Oldham became driven to write new songs. In the final verse of one of the most heartrending pieces, “Not Even if I Try,” the composer expresses longing for trying to keep a connection between life and death. “I search the stars, I watch the clouds look down to me, My thoughts are clear, My heart is aching, You’re oh so far away, I close my eyes and hold my pillow, And say a prayer for you, I won’t forget. I can’t forget, Not even if I try.”
