"Stella By Starlight" - a Book for All Ages

Stella By StarlightThis week's guest on Writers' Voices, Sharon Draper, was a middle and high school English teacher for 25 years.  In fact, she was named National Teacher of the Year in 1997.  Her first book for young adults, "Tears of a Tiger" was published in 1995 and named one of the top 100 books for young adults for the millenium.

Writers' Voices host Caroline Kilbourn, herself a former high school English teacher, says "Stella By Starlight" should be required reading for all school children.  Inspired by the childhoold journal of Draper's grandmother Estelle, who had to quit school in the fifth grade to work on the family farm Sharon Draperbut continued to write late at night, "Stella by Starlight" is set in 1932 in the fictional town of Bumblebee, NC.  Like many of Draper's books, it deals with difficult subjects; the Depression, segregation, the Ku Klux Klan, and voting rights, but told in a way that readers don't even realize they are learning history.

Join us this week on Writers' Voices to learn how this book came to be and why it is so important, why Draper writes for young adults and middle readers, and how she got her first book published.

psychedelia is alive and well

the psychedelic musical wave of the late 60s has peaked, but its influence lives on. in fact psychedelic music is alive and well today.

tame impalathis week i'll share psychedelic sounds from the last few years.

Edgar FroeseEdgar Froese, founding member of the German electronic group Tangerine Dream, has died in Vienna, aged 70.

Tangerine Dream's psychedelic and trance-like use of synthesiser sound was a significant influence on the development of electronic music.

Froese once said that "there is no death, there is just a change of our cosmic address".

Froese was born on D-Day - 6 June, 1944 - in Tilsit in East Prussia, now the Russian city of Sovetsk. Froese's father and other relatives were killed by the Nazis and the family lost all their belongings in the war. --BBC; To continue reading, click here...
