It’s been radio silence here for a bit as we’re getting ready for a new arrival. We said good-bye to foster Basset Winston, and are prepping for the appearance of our new human puppy. In keeping with looking ahead, there are some fun things going to be here shortly.
This weekend I will be posting interviews with two authors who have the distinction of being bilingual writers. Avraham Anouchi, Israeli author of From TIMNA to MARS, will talk about his latest release which combines science fiction and high international intrigue. Check back tomorrow for the full interview.
Next up, Hildur Enóla, an Icelandic author who writes capably in English and Icelandic. She will be here talking about her life as a writer, as well as her and her partner’s upcoming release, the children’s illustrated book, The Green Monsters.
On October 21, PBS will air the fourth film in its series of documentaries about women in the public sphere. MAKERS: Women in War will air at 9/8c on PBS, and will be followed by an encore showing October 22nd, 8 PM EST on MAKERS.com. I was lucky enough to be able to preview the film and interview the director for an article now live on Task & Purpose. If you have a minute, go check it out, and then tune in next week to catch the film.
In other news, I need to get back to the rest of my pre-Army transition activities, so will sign off and go spend some quality time with the copy machine. Peace!
