Otis Christmas book coverLoren Long illustrated President Barack Obama's picture book Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to  My Daughters and pop star Madonna's picture book Mr. Peabody's Apples. Children love Loren best, though, for the books he writes and illustrates about Otis, a friendly, brave farm tractor. Loren's picture book Otis was a New York Times Best Seller. On October 3, 2013 over 2,460,000 children enjoyed Otis because Jumpstart, a children's literacy program, selected it as its 2013 Read for the Record book. How did a guy who admits he didn't like to read as kid launch such an amazing career in children's books? Find out this week on The Studio with Cheryl!

Sarah Aronson, authorAuthor Sarah Aronson embraces one of the last taboos in children's literature by injecting issues of faith and moral complexity in her novels for young people. Because Sarah enjoys provoking thoughtful discussion, her published novels, which currently include Head Case, Beyond Lucky, and Believe, feature characters that are not all that nice. A former physical therapist who was once principal of a private religious school, Sarah holds an M.F.A. in Children's Literature from the Vermont College of Fine Arts, where she organizes Novel Writing Retreats. Sarah will read and discuss books at the One Book Two Book Festival taking place in Iowa City January 17-19, 2013.

- Writer's Voice - 20140110-Jo Ann Fore and Wade Kernohan

59:55 minutes (82.28 MB) Stereo 44kHz 192Kbps (CBR)

Jo Ann Fore This week on Writers' Voices we will be diving into two seemingly disparate forms of creative expression, but perhaps we will find unexpected similarities between them. 

First, we will be joined by popular blogger Jo Ann Fore, author of "When a Woman Finds Her Voice: Overcoming Lifes' Hurts and Using Your Story to Make a Difference."  In this book, Jo Ann shares her own history as a victim of abuse and poor life choices and how she found her voice, as well as the stories of many other women who have broken the shell of silence and found healing through speaking out (or writing.) Jo Ann is also the founder of the web site WriteWhereItHurts.org, which encourages others to use writing as a healing tool.

Then, at 1:30, we welcome Fairfield resident Wade Kernohan, who was recommended to us by his publisher Rodney Charles of 1st World Publishing, also of Fairfield.  Rodney says Wade's book, "Marks on a Page" is the most unusual he has ever published.  The book is described as "an assemblage of ink strokes"  that become "expressive ideas that demonstrate the relevance of abstract art..."  and as a way to "expand your expressive repetoire."  Perhaps another way of finding your voice, symbolically?

Join us for these explorations!

Nebraska movie posterWe're very excited that Nebraska is showing at the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield. Nebraska's an example of the critically lauded films the Filmosopher's anticipated when the Orpheum opened. "Elegant in its simplicity and poetic in its message, Nebraska adds another stirringly resonant chapter to Alexander Payne's remarkable filmography (Sideways, The Descendants)." Featuring "a career-defining performance by Bruce Dern, Nebraska's one of the best films of the year, the work of a great director hitting his stride." Also at the Orpheum, Rural Route Films: Best Of Shorts. 11 amazing short films, including Magnetic Reconnection, a film about the regenerative power of nature and the futility of mankind's struggle against the natural processes. Features some of the best footage of the aurora borealis ever captured. "The most moving short film I have ever seen. It is stunning." - IMDB user. "Taking in a Rural Route program is like choosing the road less travelled, and seeing something new in our constantly amazing world." More at RuralRouteFilms dot com.

We have reviews of the highly lauded films Her and Inside Llewyn Davis, plus we'll tell you why every film fan should consider seeing Disney's Frozen on the big screen, as I did at the Ottumwa 8. And don't be late, one of the finest Disney cartoons ever created shows before. You'll especially resonate with it if you've seen the highly recommended Disney film Saving Mr. Banks. We're the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings, 11:30.      - Does he have Alzheimer's?  - No, he just believes what people tell him... ~ Nebraska
