A tribute to August Coppola
Thanks to reader Patricia Vidour, an artist from Argentina, for passing along a video tribute to August Coppola by his son Christopher Coppola, who is a filmmaker. August Coppola, who died Oct. 27, was a former literature professor who had been living in Savannah, Ga., while he was writing fiction. Coppola had planned to use some of Vidour's paintings in a future novel. You can see her work in the video and at her blog, http://www.patriciavidour.com/2009/10/dr-august-floyd-coppola-my-mentor.html.
