Love In The Sixties
is about how one small town woman from Oklahoma, who came of age in the 1960s (and who now is in her sixties) is taking on some serious baby boomer questions about love, sex and death with an adventurous and outrageous “artistic” curiosity to find herself —even at the cost of “ruining her reputation.”
For thirty-five years, Aralyn was a successful businesswoman, a lobbyist at the Texas State Capitol, the director of the first abortion clinic in Austin and a member of virtually “every board and commission in town." Local theatre audiences became acquainted with Aralyn when she acted in the Big State Production of In the West, one of the longest running theatre productions in Austin that the Austin Chronicle cited as “the little monologue show that changed the face of Austin theatre “ Soon after, she evolved into a “Queen of Weird” persona when her visual art turned her otherwise suburban home into the iconic “Keep Austin Weird" house. Most recently, Aralyn published KID ME NOT: An Anthology of Women of the Sixties, now in their Sixties, which recently the winner of the Texas Association of Authors 2015 Best Autobiography/Short Stories collections. www.childfreewomen.com
