The Spring 2016 issue of the Ojai Quarterly is now available. Featuring in-depth reporting, interviews and columns by Ojai’s best reporters and photographers, the OQ is distributed for free throughout the Ojai Valley, and is available at more than 40 Barnes & Noble and independent bookstores from San Diego to Scottsdale, Ariz.
A few highlights:
• The cover story focuses on Mark Frost, legendary screenwriter and author, the co-creator of “Twin Peaks,” the show which redefined what television was capable of as a medium. Frost and David Lynch, the other co-creator, are now shooting a “Twin Peaks” sequel, due for release in early 2017 through Showtime.
• For months, thousands of people have driven past the bustling construction site near the “Y” intersection. Demitri Corbin interviews the young winemakers from Topa Mountain Winery, along with owner Larry Guerra, on what they have planned for the exciting new addition to Ojai’s tastemaking scene.
• Joe Sohm, prolific photographer and historian, brings back a vivid portrait from one of the most hotly contested, and debated, primary seasons in history.
• And lots, lots more – with our usual complement of unusually talented correspondents – Peter Bellwood, Anca Colbert, Bennett Barthelemy, Jesse Phelps and Sarah Howery Hart.
