Plot Whisperer Martha Alderson (who will be presenting her workshop on April 7, 2012 at CWC-Sacramento Writing Academy series Thank you Margie Yee Webb for reminding me) tells Writing Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan about Una King and TRAIL BLAZING WOMEN Authors

Una King wrote:

Dear Teresa: Martha Alderson told me you especially liked my story of integrating the San Francisco Cable cars for women. There is a group of “TRAIL BLAZING WOMEN” authors, mostly in their 80-90′s, who could use support in their effort on the Children’s Reading Room project. Perhaps, if you found some time, you could visit the project site, my page here at facebook–Children’s Reading Room. If you feel women, aged 80-90′s who are still going strong as authors, deserve support, perhaps you would feel like making a positive comment on the project to your friends. These pioneering women could really use any and all support. When I think of Ms. Buscho, 93 and still going strong as an author, I bless every day she is still with us. Thank you, Teresa. Una King, author of Tiny Tug, Adventures on San Francisco Bay (a children’s book)

Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan here to thank Una King and all the TRAIL BLAZING WOMEN” authors for their work to benefit the Children’s Reading Room project.

I see from Una King’s facebook page that she’ll be on radio every Sunday:

Hey folks: Sunday, April 1, 2012, 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (Pacific time), and every Sunday thereafter, please check out my new live FM radio show, on 107.3FM  “Children’s Reading Room by Una King.” It is also simulcast via Podcast throughout America on http://www.kows.fm/

Una, I’d like to introduce you to Amy Gorman.

Amy Gorman’s book, Aging Artfully, is about the twelve women aged 85-105 who inspired this work. It’s also about promoting positive healthy aging for the general public, and for advocating involvement with the creative arts in retirement years. It’s never too late to start something new…it could prolong your life!  http://www.agingartfully.com/

Cheering for Una, Amy, and their colleagues and fans!

And, sending Angel Effie Lee Morris  (trail-blazing woman, children’s librarian, literacy advocate, founding-president of Women’s National Book Association-San Francisco Chapter) big smiles!

Sincerely,

Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan
