I actually cried watching this episode; it definitely proved that we have a cast of very talented actors! Mary and Francis were, for once, blissfully at peace especially after the news that we've all been waiting for: an heir to the throne! But how quickly things went wrong… (more...)

King Francis has returned to court and the nobles are restless. This episode of REIGN was jam-packed with seemingly endless plot lines from Leith's continuing misfortunes to Mary and Francis's differing ideas about how to deal with Narcisse. It was somehow more shockingly gory than normal with Nostradamus's drawing and quartering being stopped at the very last second and a live person being found amongst the deformed bodies of the plague victims.

Glenn Rogers Releases Book 2 of 'THE COLEMANS TRILOGY, THE JOURNALGlenn Rogers Releases Book 2 of 'THE COLEMANS TRILOGY, THE JOURNAL
by BWW News Desk - Jul 8, 2015

Glenn Rogers' frontier thriller trilogy continues with The Colemans Book 2 The Journal. In Book 1 The Reckoning, the Coleman brothers learned that their father, Royce Coleman was a famous mountain man. In Book 2 The Journal, they discover that their daddy kept a journal of his days as a mountain man, a journal filled with stories that is a joy for them to read. They also learn that their father was a spy for the Union in the Civil War. Recuperating from the bloody confrontation with their parents' killers, Caleb and Zack Coleman are surprised by a young woman bursting into their room claiming to have their father's journal, a book that contains secrets that powerful people in Washington, D.C. will kill to keep secret. When the boys learn that it was their father's intent to have the information in his journal given to honest and just people in Washington, Caleb and Zack decide to see to it that their daddy's goal is realized. To get the job done, the boys must travel from Colorado to California and then clear back to Washington, D.C., where they are surprised to find that President Johnson knew their father and considered him a trusted friend. With Emma Langly, the young woman who brought them their daddy's journal, as their new traveling partner, the boys face an adversary that knew and respected their father, a man who was perhaps their father's equal and who will kill the sons of Royce Coleman if need be to keep the secrets of the journal secret. Once Caleb and Zack become aware of their deadly opponent, they struggle with the ethics of how to deal with an enemy who intends to kill them if necessary, but who hasn't moved against them yet. Rogers, a college professor in a small town in Iowa, believes that a good story should not only be entertaining, but thought provoking. 'The best stories,' Rogers says, 'make you think about ethical concerns or important issues of one sort or another. The best writers are those who can tell a story that not only entertains but provokes thoughtful consideration.' When he's not in class teaching philosophy, Rogers is writing fiction. To write accurately about Royce Coleman's life as a mountain man, Rogers did extensive research into the lives and adventures of the real mountain men of the 1820s and 30s, reading several of the actual journals the explorers and trappers kept as they opened the American frontier. The Colemans Book 2 The Journal is available from Amazon as a Kindle book or as a paperback or hardback. All of Rogers' novels are highlighted on his website: booksbyglennrogers.net (more...)

Glenn Rogers Releases New Frontier ThrillerGlenn Rogers Releases New Frontier Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Jul 7, 2015

Philosophy Professor, Dr. Glenn Rogers has written a frontier thriller where two young men face unimagined challenges and overwhelming odds as they set out across a war-torn frontier to bring their parents' killers to justice. The title of Dr. Rogers' book is: 'The Colemans Book 1 The Reckoning.' In the Prolog of his thriller, Rogers writes: Whatever honor may be possible in the seemingly unavoidable conflicts that arise between men of differing ideologies, if indeed there can be any at all, is turned to shame by men who use the conflict to justify brutality and enhance their own personal position. Such was the case April 14, 1865. In Washington, D.C., Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. In the region of Cumberland, Kentucky, a band of renegades dressed as Union soldiers raided several farms, murdering, looting, and burning as they went, setting in motion a chain of events that would forever change the lives of two young men. The young Coleman brothers face incredible challenges as they leave the hills of Kentucky for the first time in search of their parents' killers. Though capable young men, Caleb, seventeen, and Zack, fifteen, could not have anticipated the events that awaited them beyond the friendly hills of the Cumberland. They also could not have anticipated what they would learn about their father. Knowing him only as an outdoorsman and a Kentucky farmer, they are surprised to learn of his former life as a famous mountain man. Everywhere they stop, it seems someone knows his name. Over the next few months, the Coleman brothers would learn that there was a side to their father they knew nothing about. And in coping with the harsh realities of life beyond the hills of Kentucky, in pursuit of a pack of ruthless killers, the brothers also learn a great deal about themselves. When the brothers finally catch up with the killers, they are seriously outnumbered as they match wits, muscle, and skill with the men who murdered their parents. The Colemans is not at all a typical 'western,' but a thoughtful and thought provoking story about two young men who wrestle with the difference between justice and revenge, and responsibilities and obligations as they struggle to be the men their parents raised them to be. Rogers, who was born in Kentucky, is a history buff and has always been interested in the time frame in which The Colemans is set. He spent hundreds of hours researching the various aspects of life in 1864 America: the location of towns, bridges, roads, rivers and creeks, distances, weapons, and more, so that his story would historically authentic. 'The Colemans Book 1 The Reckoning' is now available through Amazon as a kindle book, a paperback, or hardback. All of Glenn Rogers' novels are displayed on his website: booksbyglennrogers.net.

A theatrical event for the whole family, Quintessence's special brand of imagination theatre will take you on a whirlwind adventure with Alice and allow you to escape the holiday madness in Wonderland. Bringing together the best professional actors and designers from Philadelphia and across the country, Artistic Director Alexander Burns leads this collective of artists on a mission to ignite the classics through visceral, actor-focused and text-driven productions. ALICE's ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND will begin previews today, December 10 at 7pm and open on Saturday, December 13 at 7pm. All performances are at the Sedgwick Theater, 7137 Germantown Ave in Mt Airy, Philadelphia, 19119. To purchase tickets visit QuintessenceTheatre.org or call 215.987.4450. (more...)
