Author appearance at BookPeople centers on the yogurt shop murders


1. Beverly Lowry at BookPeople

7 p.m. Oct. 18. Free. 603 N. Lamar Blvd. 512-472-5050, bookpeople.com.

Prolific local author Lowry is discussing and signing her latest true crime novel, “Who Killed These Girls?: Cold Case.” This new book explores a horrifying crime close to home: the chilling, violent murders of four young girls in late 1991 at an Austin yogurt shop. Through many twists and turns, Lowry gives us the whole story behind the murders and the subsequent investigations that now, more than 20 years later, are still ongoing.

2. Art Science Gallery’s “Meet the Beetles.”

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 18, 20 and 22; 1 to 6 p.m. Oct. 19 and Oct. 21. 916 Springdale Road, Building 2 #102. artsciencegallery.com.

It’s the last weekend of this show that puts an unexpected subject in the spotlight. Beetles — yes, the insects, not the band — are more interesting than they might seem, and this group exhibit aims to prove that. With their works, the 15 featured artists are showcasing the diversity of the amazing insect that Darwin admired. The artists, hailing from the U.S., Spain and Italy, provide a look at everything from the beetle’s behavior to its habitat, agricultural significance and natural history.

3. Lydia Loveless at Antone’s

8:30 p.m. Oct. 18. $15. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com.

Alt-country siren Loveless and her band lit up several venues during South by Southwest last spring, building on previous promising releases with strong new material that surfaced in August on the Bloodshot Records album “Real.” She seems poised for a big breakthrough, with a documentary film from director Gorman Bechard screening in select markets and festivals this fall. Will Courtney & the Wild Bunch open. — Peter Blackstock

4. Artists for Advocacy at Juliet Ristorante

5 p.m. Oct. 18. $25. 1500 Barton Springs Road. 512-479-1800, juliet-austin.com/events/.

Local artists will be showcasing their work on Juliet’s beautiful outdoor patio and donating a portion of their sales to the Texas Advocacy Project. All you have to do is get ready to go shopping and enjoy bites, cocktails and wines from the Italian restaurant. The featured artists include Priscilla Martinez of Joyarte Jewelry, Zoë Comings, Erica Wildman, Jayshree Vakil, Claudia Reese of Cera-Mix Studio and Rochelle Rae of Rae Cosmetics.

Genre films like ‘Get Out’ tackle serious issues — why can’t dramas?

We’re only three months into 2017, but it’s safe to say that the sleeper sensation of the year will be “Get Out,” Jordan Peele’s horror film that manages to be both fiendishly clever and soberingly on-point about racism, white supremacy and liberal hypocrisy. An enormous box office success that has earned more than $130...

You think you don't like beets? Try 'em this way.

This salad, best described as a "small plate" using the current culinary lingo, offers a refreshing bright spot this time of year when we have had our fill of roasted roots and stews and are ready to move on to something sunnier. Sure, the dish is anchored by the deep earthiness of roasted beets, but they are given a different outlook, layered...
