BWW Blog: Dalton Allison - An Eco-Friendly and Eye Appealing Set? Only at the Palace
by Guest Blogger: Dalton Allison - Oct 21, 2016

Nestled in the lakeside community of Netcong, New Jersey sits The Palace Theater, home of the Growing Stage Theater. When attending a main stage production, you'll not only watch a high-quality show, but also see an elaborate set designed by Perry Kroeger and Stephen Fredricks. The only thing more astonishing than the set is what the set is made of-cardboard. You may be asking yourself, How can such a flimsy material be chosen as the main material on set? Executive Director Stephen Fredricks explains. 'Honestly the inspiration came from the cost of buying wood. At the time the theatre couldn't afford sheets of plywood and other such materials, so we needed to find an affordable alternative. Perry Kroeger and I would visit all the area appliance stores on Thursdays - right after they had their deliveries for the weekend sales. Refrigerator and mattress containers were gold! We called it our weekly dumpster diving exercise. In time we discovered a company that sold cardboard in 4'x 8' sheets and then rest is history.' (more...)

TO SWALLOW THE EARTH Wins International Book Award
by BWW News Desk - Oct 19, 2016

What if you came home after a journey and your family was no longer there? What if someone else was living in your house, running what you used to manage - and trying to kill you? So begins the thriller 'To Swallow The Earth,' which won this year's International Book Award for western novel. 'It's really my grandfather's story,' says co-author Karl Beckstrand. 'My grandfather grew up exploring the Sierra Nevada Mountains on horseback a hundred years ago. He used that setting for his mystery - set in the Nevada silver rush,' Beckstrand said. After his grandfather passed away in 1992, Beckstrand inherited the manuscript. 'My challenge was to tighten his story and develop the characters while preserving the action, suspense and earthy vernacular.' Beckstrand, who grew up in San Jose, California, has won other literary awards, but this one is special. 'It kind of validates my grandfather's vision - gives him a nod - even beyond the grave.' The thriller also was named a finalist for the Laramie Award and garnered Literary Classics' seal of approval. 'It's getting great reviews online as well,' Beckstrand said. 'The main character is an outcast, half-Mexican, raised by American Indians. But he's fearless and loyal to his friends and family.' In addition to a tough, dark hero, there's a gutsy heroine who is unintimidated in the worst kinds of opposition. Beckstrand's multicultural stories usually have characters of color and surprises at the end. Bestselling author Beckstrand heads Premio Publishing & Gozo Books, which produces multicultural content for educators, libraries, and families. His fifteenth book may be found at and via major booksellers and distributors. The e-book will be temporarily free on Kindle and other platforms through Nov. 25. Beckstrand will present on publishing Tues., Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the Weber County Library 2039 W. 4000 South, Roy, Utah and Sat., Nov. 5 from 1 - 4 p.m. at the Viridian Center 8030 S. 1825 West, West Jordan, Utah.
