The unorthodox Portland memoir "Babette: The Many Lives, Two Deaths and Double Kidnapping of Dr. Ellsworth", by local writer Ross Eliot and published on Heliocentric Press has recently been shortlisted for non-fiction by literary judges with the international 2014 Rainbow Awards. This book is the true story about Ross Eliot’s life with a prominent Portland college professor who was kidnapped as a child in 1928 from Yakima, Washington, raised in occupied France during WWII, involved with the notorious Rajneesh Puram, East German communists, the Catholic Church and also underwent a late-life sex reassignment. It has been added as an official text at Portland Community College by their English Department. This month the PCC Queer Resource Center is sponsoring Ross Eliot to give a presentation about Dr. Ellsworth and her sensational place in LGBTQ history.
