BWW Review: Upstream Theaters Wonderful DE KUS/THE KISSBWW Review: Upstream Theaters Wonderful DE KUS/THE KISS
by Chris Gibson - Oct 16, 2015

Playwright Ger Thijs' work, DE KUS has been splendidly translated by Paul Evans in Upstream Theater's production of THE KISS. There is a certain magic in these woods where a chance encounter takes place. It's that old adage about the importance of first impressions, but taken to show that second and third and fourth, etc impressions can be more even more revealing, and honest. That's the sense of wonder we experience watching this unique play, set in a woodland, path strewn Dutch forest, where a man and woman meet repeatedly, and find new "hidden truths" that allow each of them to delve a bit closer into the life of the other. It's a truly special show that captures the imagination in unexpected fashion, somehow transforming a black box theatre into a beautiful landscape where personalities begin to emerge as an unlikely couple come together, to ponder, console, and pass the time. This is just a terrific show that completely demands your attendance. (more...)

New Children's Picture Book with Stunning Artwork Explores the World of a Hopi Indian GirlNew Children's Picture Book with Stunning Artwork Explores the World of a Hopi Indian Girl
by BWW News Desk - Nov 21, 2015

Newly released picture book about a Hopi (pronounced: hope-ee) Indian girl takes readers through many metaphorical doors to explore the different aspects that make each our lives: family, friendship, culture, education, creativity, and nature. TALASI... A Story of Tenderness and Love exposes children to new experiences as Talasi explores her native world and later the modern culture of the White Man while holding to Native American beliefs and traditions. This charming and lovingly illustrated picture book teaches young readers how love and friendships get us over the rough spots in life and to never stop exploring the world around them. Many American children are growing up in a multicultural world and are curious to understand all the cultures surrounding them. 'Traveling through Arizona, I was terribly curious myself, about what life on an Indian reservation was like when I visited a Hopi tribe,' said author Ellen S. Cromwell. 'I wanted to understand the culture of these amazing people and visited with a kikmongwi, primarily a religious leader for the tribe. This experience truly touched me.' TALASI... A Story of Tenderness and Love is about a young Hopi Indian girl named Talasi. Her name comes from corn tassel flowers that surround her pueblo home in Arizona. Tassels are tall, slender flowers clustered at the very top of corn. Corn, in its many forms, provides basic nourishment for Hopi People. Wonderfully written, this children's book clearly reflects the author's fascination with the Hopi people and their history. Hopi means 'peaceful person' or 'civilized person' in the Hopi language and Ellen S. Cromwell evokes a compelling portrait of the Hopi Indians and how they truly are a peaceful people. 'The richness of Talasi's Indian culture will expand the horizons of any child who reads this book,' said illustrator Desiree Sterbini. 'I researched to make sure every illustration was authentic to the Hopi culture. I wanted the themes of love, family, and friendship to be something each child could relate to. The images are personal as they are from actual pictures of my mother-in-law and daughter.' With the author and illustrator using personal, real life experiences and pictures to draw from, the book exemplifies what it means to value all cultures that make up the world we live in and that no matter what children can solve problems with love and courage. 'A lot of the imagery is from personal experiences. I grew up as an immigrant in the Bronx and remember the neighborhood coming together to build this treehouse for all the kids to play in. It was amazing and we felt like we were on top of the world as kids up there,' said author Ellen S. Cromwell. 'Those childhood experiences and what I learned from the Hopi tribe and its culture helped me create Talasi and her world.' Not only does this picture book have multicultural overtones, but parents and educators will find the author used sight words and repetition to make this the perfect book for classrooms and bookshelves. 'Reading a book together as a family or in the classroom is one simple yet very special tradition,' said Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina (http://www.halopublishing.com). 'Readers of all ages will find this picture book is heartwarming and helps keep you and your children connected through the upcoming holiday season.' You can purchase "TALASI... A Story of Tenderness and Love" through Halo Publishing's website (http://halopublishing.com), Amazon, and B&N. Biography: Author Ellen Cromwell is the founder of the Georgetown Hill Early Schools in Montgomery County, Maryland and has been an educator of young children since the 1970's and is the author of three early childhood professional texts including Nurturing Readiness in Early Childhood Education, Allyn & Bacon, 2000.

BUCKSKIN BRIGADES is ReleasedBUCKSKIN BRIGADES is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2016

Galaxy Press is bringing in the New Year with a message of honor and integrity as told in the L. Ron Hubbard Western Fiction story, 'Buckskin Brigades,' a story of which the New York Times wrote, 'Mr. Hubbard has reversed a time-honored formula and has given a thriller to which, at the end of every chapter or so, another paleface bites the dust ... [It has] an enthusiasm, even a freshness and sparkle, decidedly rare in this type of romance.' 'Buckskin Brigades' is premised on the Lewis & Clark Expedition murder of a Native American Blackfeet Indian Chief in 1806 near what is now Helena, Montana, and its effect in changing the course of history. The story is an adventure of the nascent American Northwest, and skillfully weaves together the history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, its encounter with the Blackfeet Indians, the era's rapacious fur traders, and a figure of singular destiny, a White Man named Michael Kirk but known to the Blackfeet as 'Yellow Hair.' The impact of the story's message was so significant, it prompted a letter of recognition to L. Ron Hubbard from the Council Members of the Blackfeet Nation which read in part, 'Like 'Yellow Hair' you have walked the Blackfeet path with honor and have showed our people in a true light. Never has our morals and ethics been presented with such clarity.' L. Ron Hubbard was born on March 13, 1911 in Tilden, Nebraska and soon thereafter moved to Helena, Montana, where a young Ron learned to read and write, ride horses and pan for gold. It was also in Helena that he was honored with the status of Blood Brother of the Blackfeet Indians. He later became one of America's most prolific writers of popular fiction producing over 18 million words of fiction with a writing career that spanned over five decades. During the 1930s and 40s he authored more than 250 short stories, novelettes and novels under his own name and any of his 15 pen names at a production rate of about 100,000 words a month. His published works from that era encompassed adventure, detective, science fiction, western and fantasy work and can be found at www.GalaxyPress.com. 'Buckskin Brigades' is available at www.Amazon.com, www.BN.com, and www.GalaxyPress.com. (more...)
