Today was so busy that I almost forgot the Tuesday Teaser for PWR members and followers of this blog. It’s not too late (even if you’re reading this Wed. or Thurs.) to tease us into reading the same book you are reading and enjoying.  Beware of copying sentences that will spoil the plot for someone else.  Here’s mine from The Bone People a strangely wonderful and wonderfully strange book by Keri Hulme:
“The boy goes on shaking his head, so his hair falls, screening his face. The way it flows out with each turn of his head reminds her of dancing dervishes as they spin to ecstasy. Exceedingly nutty child.”  This strange child with his secrets, his “father”with his, and the secrets of Kerewin the enigmatic protagonist are the focus of this unusual, but beautifully written (often bordering on poetic) novel.

This year marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (See "Introduction,"first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I am currently teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This makes my 28th year there after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. “When I was a boy, I read a story in an old magazine about a bell that called out after a murderer. You’ll think I’m soft, talking that way, but it made an impression on me and I can’t forget it.”
