Next week at Learning Ally’s Los Angeles studio, biographies will be brought to life by actors Joelle Carter (“Justified,” “High Fidelity”), Karynn Moore (“Jane by Design”) and Sheryl Lee (“Twin Peaks,” “Winter’s Bone”) along with a host of major TV and radio news anchors from the region. Meanwhile at the Palo Alto studio, Learning Ally volunteers will be joined by host of local officials, authors, and internationally acclaimed book narrator Simon Vance.
Increasingly invaluable is Joelle Carter. Once the situation is in hand and she has the information she was after, Ava simply walks away, saying only “Thanks for coming by, Raylan”. In one line, we see exactly what role Raylan fills in her life now. Much as she was with Delroy earlier, Ava shows only what she needs to show to get what she wants. I took two things from this. One, the nostalgic teenager side of her has been put away and now it’s all business. Two, I would not want to play poker with Ava Crowder.
