Product Description
Granny Weaver believes women are stronger spun together, just like the wool she spins. But will her Amish knitting circle snap if spun with women from the Smicksburg Baptist Church? Granny’s believes they can be knit together for a worthy cause: knitting hats, gloves and scarves to the growing homeless population across the USA. So Granny invites: Colleen, a young woman living at Forget-Me-Not Manor, a refuge for homeless mothers. Janice, a burnt out pastor’s wife…or a women going through the change of life. Marge, a new neighbor learning to live off-the-grid, whose husband fears her new-found faith. Suzy, who will teach knitting with needles, but is distressed over her aging dog’s health. Granny does many “casting off” prayers that her English friends will bond with Ella, Ruth, Lizzie, Lavina, Maryann, and Fannie, and not unravel the knitting circle she holds so dear. Following the tradition of Pickwick Papers (Charles Dickens) and Anne of Green Gables (L.M. Montgomery), Amish Friends Knitting Circle was a continuing story, broken down into 8 episodes, enabling reader input. If you liked the best-selling, Amish Knitting Circle, the prequel to this series, then join Granny Weaver as she invites her friends from the Smicksburg Baptist Church to a summer circle to knit for charity.

Amish Crease Lit Circle: Smicksburg Tales 3 (Volume 3) by Vogel Karen Anna
Product Description
Thousands of women worldwide are being helped by Granny Weaver and her knitting circle friends as they solve problems the Amish way. The prequels to this series are: Amish Knitting Circle: Smicksburg Tales 1 Amish Friends Knitting: Smicksburg Tales 2) If you haven't read them, you can still jump in and join the girls in this series: When readers told me their knitting circles were reading episodes of Amish Knitting Circle and then Amish Friends Knitting Circle and then making the dessert recipes included, an idea popped into my head. Granny loves Jane Austen, so why not have the women read classic literature and discuss it at their circle? Amish Knit Lit Circle was born. All winter, Granny and her circle, now consisting of Amish and English friends, knit for the homeless and discuss books. As these women reach out into their community, they share what they've learned. Missy Prissy, a snobby rich woman, reads A Christmas Carol, but will it change her Scrooge heart? The single moms at Forget-Me-Not Manor read Anne of Green Gables, and can identify with this lonely orphan, being formerly homeless and on the streets, and share their stories for the first time, bringing healing. Mona reads Black Beauty and images of past abuse haunt her dreams and this could not possibly be a good thing, or is it? Visions of romance dance in the women's heads, too. After reading Pride & Prejudice, they swoon over Mr. Darcy telling Elizabeth, "You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." Some start to write love letters to their husbands, others wonder why their husbands just can't spit out "I love you." Marriage problems come to the forefront, but will they be swept under the rag rug? With their wives being so touchy-feely, will their husbands dive for the nearest rock to hide under? Some readers are participating in Granny's circle in the comfort of their homes, not having to travel to Smicksburg. If you'd like to read these classic books along with the women in the circle, here's Granny's reading list: Pride & Prejudice, Jane Austen Little Women, Louis May Alcott Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens The Life of our Lord, Charles Dickens Emma, Jane Austen Black Beauty, Anna Sewell Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett

Why Anna Deavere Smith matters - San Jose Mercury News - San Jose Mercury News

Anna Deavere Smith returned to her hometown of Baltimore in the wake of the riots and found herself shaken by the devastation. A master monologuist who has dedicated her life and work to exploring the fault lines of race and class and politics in American life, she channeled her feelings of grief into her latest solo show "Notes From the Field: Doing Time in Education,... 2 at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. "It was very powerful for me to see the city where I grew up become an archaeological site," says the always eloquent Smith. "There are blocks and blocks and blocks of broken down buildings in ruins. Actress Anna Deavere Smith is photographed at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre studio in Berkeley, Calif. , on Wednesday, June 24, 2015. Smith created, wrote and is performing in "Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education, The California Chapter," a one-woman show running from July 11 to Aug. (Jane Tyska/Bay Area News Group) ( JANE TYSKA ) Theater game changer. Smith, who may be best-known for her role as the formidable hospital administrator Gloria Akalitus on Showtime's hit "Nurse Jackie," and her spin through "The West Wing," is a pioneer of documentary theater. Her painstaking methodology involves interviewing countless people and then bringing those characters to life onstage with unerring accuracy, taking pains to re-create every sigh and every shrug. Smith is so meticulous in her attention to the details of voice, language and physical bearing that give people definition -- the sentences that trail off, the hiccups of syntax, the heavy or elegant tread -- that the ample use of costumes, props... She's a highly intellectual actor and writer, and she relishes the stimulation of university life (she is doing a residency at Stanford in the fall and will be performing there as part of the Stanford Live series), but she's also a sucker for good... And she admits that she will miss the "Nurse Jackie" crew terribly now that the Showtime comedy about a troubled nurse (played by Edie Falco) has wrapped. "I loved working on 'Nurse Jackie,' " she says. Her most lasting legacy remains in the theater, where her groundbreaking and precise blend of journalism and art has inspired performers from Sarah Jones to Echo Brown. Source:

    Mandelker's revisionist analysis begins with the contention that Anna Karenina rejects the textual conventions of realism and the stereo-typical representation of women, especially in Victorian English fiction. In Anna Karenina, Tolstoy uses the theme of art and visual representation to articulate an aesthetics freed from gender bias and class discrimination
