    Books and Kids - Selection and Censorship

    in Family

    Antoinette Kuritz & Anissa Wardell joins Bill today to talk about the democratization of publishing has made it so absolutely anyone can publish a book.  The intrusion of heavy-handed government is threatening to functionally re-write both history and the classics.  And the once simple pleasure of selecting children’s books has become a task; and young adult books have become a mine field.
    With literally millions of publications, and the access of to both the internet and e-books, how do we select and encourage appropriate reading material for, with, around our children? • The mportance of reading for kids • Choosing the right books and why parents need to read what their kids are reading. • Using books as a tool for keeping communication open • Value of parent/child book clubs • Family reading time - why and how to make it happen • Books vs. electronic devices for kids • Why to choose books with controversial topics • Why we should NOT change languaging in the classics • How do we teach what the schools leave out.?
    Antoinette Kuritz, Book Developer, Publicist, Publishing and Media consultant, KUSI-TV “Book Expert”, and Founder of the La Jolla Writers Conference is up-to-her-keyboard in the book biz.  Antoinette regularly provides candid and comprehensive nuggets of wisdom, wit and woe about getting your words into print and avoiding the predators in the world of both traditional and self-publishing. Taking writers of all levels from idea to best seller, Antoinette has represented best selling authors worked with media hosts and producers across the nation as well as in Canada and Europe.  She is quoted regularly in national media on issues relating to the ever-changing book industry!

    Educating our Children Through Concepts Rather Than Following Books

    in Lifestyle

    What would it take to get the people to stop following others?  How can we expect our children to be leaders when we tecah them to follow?  Do you want a child capable of memorizing random facts out-of-context or a child who self-leads?

    What is the role of education to society?  Is it to protect the children and the future?  Are we doing so with the public education system?  Do we have teachers following administrators and children following books that offer little self-leadership skills?  

    This subject may get lively so be sure to take the microphone!

    WebbWeaver Books Proudly Presents: Author K.S. Elliot

    in Books

    Fallen Acres: A Girl's Voyage Beyond Life Without Her Parents ~


      When You Face Your Greatest Fears, You Find Your Truest Self... The Elliotts are a typical American family: they look content and functional to outsiders, but really, they’re navigating difficult family dynamics. Two introverted parents with passionate feelings who have learned to master and subvert their anger find themselves confronted by a drama-fueled oldest daughter, and a self-absorbed middle daughter. The author, their youngest daughter, tries as hard as she can to be the perfect child—she doesn’t cause trouble, she stays away from angry scenes. But the repression that makes her passive and avoidant causes her reckless nature to come out in other ways…in a series of bad decisions that lead her, at the age of 40, to a place where she is determined to do the right thing for her parents during their late-life crisis. Her story is one of heartache, loss, lessons learned, truths uncovered. It’s about the ways in which God and fate intervene to show us what we’re made of. It’s a powerful testament to the need for compassion and realism with aging parents and end-of-life issues. But most of all, it’s a story of identity and redemption—and how one girl ran away from her hurtful family issues only to find that immersing herself back into her family’s world was the way to claim who she really was. Lyrical, honest, and vivid, Fallen Acres is a memoir both deeply relatable and profoundly valuable.
