Have you ever thought of rowing across the Pacific Ocean? 🌊🚣‍♀️🌊

A team of four California women just broke a world record in a speedy journey that brought them from San Francisco to Honolulu. #greatpacificrace

Libby Costello, Sophia Denison-Johnston, Brooke Downes, and Adrienne Smith began their 2,400-nautical-mile Pacific crossing in June.

When Long Beach Opera’s executive director and chief executive, Jennifer Rivera, announced James Darrah as the new artistic director of the company in February 2021, she told The Times, “I really did not want to hire a white man for this job.” lat.ms/3JsFgMV
“The work of equity, diversity, inclusion and representation is something that has become a core value for me,” she continued. Rivera said she wanted to work with Darrah to provide more opportunities for artists from underrepresented communities. latimes.com/entertainment-…
But a year later, the company instead stands as a cautionary tale of how diversity efforts can go awry. lat.ms/3JsFgMV

Tess Gunty began to write her debut novel, “Rabbit Hutch," seven years ago. She was living in New York and experiencing a constant barrage of catcalls when she walked down the street. latimes.com/entertainment-…
She told @DoranyPineda90 that she felt “like a deer living in hunting grounds.” As if her flesh didn’t belong to her. To cope, she would dissociate.“I started to feel like I had to leave my body in order to get to my next destination,” says Gunty, now 29. latimes.com/entertainment-…
Gunty's debut, "The Rabbit Hutch," out Aug. 2, opens with the protagonist literally exiting her body. Her true subject, though, is a land of loneliness, squandered potential and exploitation that feels uniquely American — and what can help us survive it. latimes.com/entertainment-…
