Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Judith!

Wow! Your profile shows an extraordinary career and life well lived! Feel free to post links to blogs, reviews, or articles you think we need to see, make book recommendations or pans, start a discussion--anything that fits how you define literature! Most important, please have fun!

I'm new to moderating a group, so I'm bound to make mistakes. Please let me know if something is amiss, and I'll do my best to come through.

Glad to have you aboard!

Cheers,

CW

Nice to meet you, Judith. Did you know the name "Judith" means beloved?

Judith, this will be fun, too, to hear how your mystery is progressing. How far along are you? I think I am getting rather close to finishing my mss, though I realize I'm probably talking months, not days. Do you know of the mystery writer Charlotte McLeod, who also set her mysteries at a state land grant U (I think it was that big)?

Judith,
Good to hear from you. My plans for coming to Oakland are still developing but it's looking now like I'll be coming Nov. 6 or 7th, leaving the 11th. I've hoping to do a Performing the Book event while I'm there and a couple of bookstore gigs. It would be fun to join up with you and have my improv friends perform some snipets of your book as well. Let me know if this is something that you'd be up for and of course, if you'll be in town on those dates.

Hi Judith. I saw you got my book in one of your comments. Did you read it? Did you also review it on amazon and or goodreads? Wow. I am sorry if I missed all that goodness. :)

I was suggested to speak to women studies in university - I don't know many in academia, do you have any idea how one might reach out to women studies and how it works with their speaker circuits / programs ? thanks much. See you soon!!!

Judith, wish I still lived close enough to come to the Bay Area event--enjoy! Should be a great evening.

Hi Judith, good to be here, now. Has been so so so busy but have a little air now. Tell me what's up with the event in Berkeley ... did you create a FB event I could post around?

At 11:33am on February 18, 2013, Tania Pryputniewicz said…

Thanks for asking Judith. I am teaching Transformative Blogging for women, blogging when I can at Feral Mom, Feral Writer, and in love with making photo-poem micro movies. I've started a series of blogs in support of women bloggers on my main site. I've also just commited myself to taking this year to work on a book based on the blogging courses. A rich and happy writing life, as it sounds like yours continues to be...I am so glad to have made the connection with you. To gritty, pithy writing and all that it offers!

Judith,

Loved your Valentine post at Huffington Post...so beautifully honest and moving. Wish I'd had chance to work with you at UCD, graduated back in 1991. I worked at WRAC as it was called back then as an intern and minored in Women's Studies so long ago. Off to check out your blog. Thanks again...and I think that love story belongs as much today as in the 60s.

Thanks so much for responding Judith. I've been keeping an eye on SheWrites even though I haven't been active, too much going on in my life, and have noticed how well you're doing, Huff Post etc, and how well you're integrated into the doing around here. If the small press that has my book right now doesn't take me on, I will be joining your ranks.

When a Brother Dies

Posted on March 26, 2015 at 10:30am 9 Comments

“Even siblings we don’t see, who live differently from us, who move in their own world, may be shoring up our lives, our sense of family, our feeling of being at home in the world without our knowing it.”

Two years ago, in March, my younger brother died, quite unexpectedly. He’d been my only sibling and, both of our parents being gone, the only other person left from our original family. His daughter had asked my daughter to tell me the news. “Mom?” she…
