Kristin Lucas

On October 5, 2007, Kristin Lucas became the most current version of herself when she succeeded in legally changing her name from Kristin Sue Lucas to Kristin Sue Lucas in a Superior Court of California courtroom. Refresh presents transcripts of courtroom discussions between Lucas and the presiding judge that enter into philosophical territory as they debate change, its perceived meaning, and its relation to law.

Soberscove Press was launched in March 2009 by Julia Klein with the publication of Artists’ Sessions at Studio 35 (1950). Soberscove is eager to make accessible material that might otherwise only be available to specialists and/or that is out of print, as well as previously unpublished material that we find exciting. Art-related subjects are Soberscove’s primary focus, but “art-related” will be construed broadly.
