OXFORD, Miss. – Award-winning author and screenwriter Chris Offutt is slated to join the faculty at the University of Mississippi this fall as assistant professor of English and screenwriting.
Offutt, who wrote two screenplays for HBO’s hit series “True Blood,” is writing a screenplay for the HBO series “Treme.” He is also the author of several novels and memoirs, and his upcoming work, “Luck,” will be his third short story collection.
English department Chair Ivo Kamps said the faculty is “extremely pleased to add to its rank a screenwriter, novelist and nonfiction writer” of Offutt’s caliber.
"True Blood" star, and Racine native Kristin Bauer is taking an international stand against cosmetics testing on animals.
She's written a letter to John Dalli, the European Union's Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, asking that the European Commission stick to a deadline that will ban the marketing of animal-tested cosmetics.
The ban is set to go into effect in the EU in 2013, but some cosmetic companies are pressuring the EU to postpone it.
The letter reads, in part: "I join the many EU citizens and others worldwide who are concerned that delaying this ban will cause many thousands of animals to suffer and die to test blush and body lotions."
"Kristin is really passionate about animal related issues, and that's why she wrote the letter,” according to Jessica Frost, a spokeswoman for Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which released Bauer's letter.
