Bread & Roses Show January 9, 2009 ~ Two Women Writers: Keepers of History


KBOO is open to the public! To visit the station, contact your staff person or call 503-231-8032.

I'll be interviewing two local women writers, Anjala Ehelebe author of Images of America: Portland's Woodlawn Neighborhood and Jewel Lansing author of My Montana: A History and Memoir - 1930-1950.  Anjala takes us through a historic accounting of the Woodlawn neighborhood while Jewel shares with us what life was like growing up in rural Montana.  Both women are true "Keepers of History" and during this segment of Bread & Roses, you’ll hear the process each one went through in writing and publishing their work along with a live reading.
Mark your calendar for January 9, 2009 at 6pmPST as I'll be the host of another segment of Bread & Roses. You can also listen online at
Cheers ~ Bridget B.

How did this one come about...Anajala and I met back in 2006 when I was volunteering as the volunteer coordinator for Earth Day 2007, which was held at Woodlawn Park and we stayed in contact while she was working on the history of Portland's Woodland Neighborhood.  She recently sent out an email notice letting us know that she was having her book signings at the Talking Drums Bookstore and Reflections Coffeehouse and the Oregon Historical Society.  I attended the signing at the Oregon Historical Society and mentioned a desire to interview her along with another woman writer and she in turn introduced me to Jewel...and there you have the prep work begins.
So be sure to join us to hear the fruits of our collaboration.
