Product Description

Aggie isn't expecting visitors at the Sleepy Time Motel in the Great Smoky Mountains. Since her husband died, she is all alone with her cat, Ugly, and keeping up with the bills and repairs has become next to impossible. The pool is empty, the garden is overgrown, and not a soul has come to stay in nearly three months. When she reluctantly places a For Sale ad in the newspaper, Aggie doesn't know that Kirby and his mom will need a room when their car breaks down on the way to Kirby's new reform school. Or that Loretta and her parents will arrive in her dad's plumbing company van on a trip meant to honor the memory of Loretta's birth mother. Or that Clyde Dover will answer the For Sale ad in such a hurry and move in with his daughter, Willow, looking for a brand-new life to replace the one that was fractured when Willow's mom left. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that Aggie and her guests find just the friends they need at the shabby motel in the middle of nowhere.

From an author long recognized for her true Southern voice and heartfelt characters, Greetings from Nowhere, with its four intertwining stories, brings Barbara O'Connor's work to a new level of sophistication.

This title has Common Core connections.

"Old media" threatened by my film crew: Weatherill - InDaily

Weatherill has been criticised for using taxpayers’ money to fly a two-man team from Adelaide to Europe to film and package short pieces about his activities in Paris. The footage was supplied to Adelaide media where it has been used to illustrate stories about the climate talks. The Opposition and some media figures have questioned the expense, likely to run into tens of thousands of dollars, with Liberal leader Steven Marshall saying a $10 selfie stick would have done the job just as well. Advertisement Interviewed on ABC radio today, the Premier was unrepentant and said he planned to hire the same production house for similar work in the future. He said the footage would be used in “as many places as we can” to promote South Australia and attract investment. “It’s already been used by a number of the news networks and the very same networks that were also running stories criticising us so I found that curious,” Weatherill told ABC 891. He said it was “a bit of a threat to old media”. “We’re publishing our own material, bypassing the old media – they don’t like that,” he said. Weatherill’s department hired Adelaide production house, 57 Films, to accompany the Premier on the trip. No local media accompanied Weatherill to Paris. Media companies pay their own way when they choose to travel with the Premier. “We need to realise that the modern form of communication is to capture images and present high quality images of our State both to the nation and the world to attract attention to ourselves, to attract the investment that we need. When asked about the lack of editorial independence in the footage produced by his film crew, Weatherill said: “Well and people can judge it though. People still have the right to criticise us if they do, but we are also going to send out images of ourselves, we’ll use them in promotional material on our trade missions. Related Story Media Week Jay's film crew and the new media world “You can’t actually get the quality of presentation necessary just by running around with a selfie stick. He said that would present a “low rent” image of South Australia as “a bit of a sleepy country town”. Source: indaily.com.au
