Author of the Month: March 2020

Wright Writers of Dayton will honor one member of the group by selecting them to be the author of the month. This March we celebrate Ruth Kibler Peck, the head of our group.

Author of the Month

Ruth Kibler Peck

Ruth Ann Bio PhotoBio: Ruth Ann married her high school sweetheart, Walter Peck, and they have five grown children, eight grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. She graduated with High Honors from Wright State University at age 40 and taught English for 21 years at Northmont Junior High in Englewood, Ohio. In 1990 she was honored as one of Ohio’s Top Ten Teachers from 7,000 nominees. She has won dozens of national, state, and local prizes for her poetry – see Rowing Through the Night. Poverty, Puberty, & Patriotism is her seventh book and was written especially for teenagers and for those who remember the special years of World War II.

Press Release of
Poverty, Puberty, & Patriotism:
A Dayton Girl Grows Up During

World War II
by Ruth Kibler Peck

Youth Dares to Dream Beyond
Fears in World War II

Tucson, AZ – Before America waved her victorious star-spangled banner, a young teen, who lived in bustling Dayton, Ohio, had witnessed the devastating and massive revolution of World War II. As she dreamed to live a modest and peaceful life, World War II was her living nightmare. Now a published author, Ruth Kibler Peck recollects as her nightmares come to life on her recently launched book Poverty, Puberty, & Patriotism: A Dayton Girl Grows Up During World War II.

The book opens on that fateful Sunday afternoon on the 7th of December, 1941 — the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The horrifying sequence of events created a quaking fear on the lives of the Kibler Family, especially with her mother’s life-threatening illness and her father’s meager salary. As the Great Depression ended and World War II began, their drastic challenge of finding hope in sustaining their home was a remarkable event that Ruth could remember even until today.

Ruth’s memoir is similarly narrated like The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. While both books shared their personal experiences during wars, Ruth and Anne aimed to empower young girls and teenagers to strive higher in faith and hope in spite of youthful innocence.

Ruth’s work will be featured at the Tucson Festival of Books 2020, to be held at the University of Arizona this coming March 14-15 at the Authors Press booth 136.

Book of the Month

Book Girl: A Journey through the
Treasures and Transforming Power 

of a Reading Life

by Sarah Clarkson 

book girl cover

This book has been recommended by the head of the Wright Writers of Dayton and author, Ruth Kibler Peck.

Description of book from Amazon

When you hear a riveting story, does it thrill your heart and stir your soul? Do you hunger for truth and goodness? Do you secretly relate to Belle’s delight in the library in Beauty and the Beast?

If so, you may be on your way to being a book girl.

Books were always Sarah Clarkson’s delight. Raised in the company of the lively Anne of Green Gables, the brave Pevensie children of Narnia, and the wise Austen heroines, she discovered reading early on as a daily gift, a way of encountering the world in all its wonder. But what she came to realize as an adult was just how powerfully books had shaped her as a woman to live a story within that world, to be a lifelong learner, to grasp hope in struggle, and to create and act with courage.

She’s convinced that books can do the same for you.

Join Sarah in exploring the reading life as a gift and an adventure, one meant to enrich, broaden, and delight you in each season of your life as a woman. In Book Girl, you’ll discover:

  • how reading can strengthen your spiritual life and deepen your faith,
  • why a journey through classic literature might be just what you need (and where to begin),
  • how stories form your sense of identity,
  • how Sarah’s parents raised her to be a reader—and what you can do to cultivate a love of reading in the growing readers around you, and
  • 20+ annotated book lists, including some old favorites and many new discoveries.

Whether you’ve long considered yourself a reader or have dreams of becoming one, Book Girl will draw you into the life-giving journey of becoming a woman who reads and lives well.

Book of the Month

The Amulet of Elements

fantasy, adventure, romance, adult fairy tale

amulet of elements

Princess Ellyria Rose found her special places in the books she read. Imagining herself in far off lands, she would dream of the knight who might rescue her one day from her dull, everyday life of needlepoint and lessons on becoming a lady.

Princess Ellyria Rose yearned for adventure and on her sixteenth birthday she got her wish, being rescued by the man of her dreams. Little did she know that would prove to be an adventure she did not expect to have.

Betrayed by the very man whom Princess Ellyria trusted, and left at the mercy of her father’s enemy, she had to use her wits to escape; along with the help of the very man who led her astray in the beginning.

Danger unfolds time and again, revealing an ancient story about a princess and a prophecy.

The Amulet of Elements is

Word of the Month

genesis

The word genesis can be traced back to the Greek gignesthai meaning “to be born.” When written with a capital G, it refers to the first book of the Bible, but it is often used in a non-biblical sense to mean “an origin, creation, or beginning.”

Play of the Month

Snow QueenHow Hans, Christian & Anderson
Melted the Snow Queen

By Lisa Like-Stokely,
Wright Writers of Dayton member

Somewhere between Camelot and modern day, between IPADs and poisoned Apples, between ballet and uptown funk, this fractured fairy tale brings the classic characters of Hans Christian Anderson to life. Thumbelina, the not so tiny dancer, who is transformed into a beautiful ballerina; Jenny, the diamond studded and care free Nightingale (Mae West character); Heny, the ugly duckling turned obnoxious comedian (a cross between Heny Youngman and Groucho Marx); Sunny and Share, the dynamic singing duck duo topping the charts at Swan Lake; the directionally challenged Princess Gardenia who unexpectedly finds romance; Bruno, the valiant tin soldier who dances hip-hop; and the appalling proclivities of the robe shedding Emperor, are all re-imagined into this delightful play for the whole family. Audiences will be pleasantly surprised to recognize entertainers from the past and present. Laugh along and find out how a diverse group of fairy tale characters and a trio of ogres work together to save the Snow Queen from her diabolical fiancé.

Frances, Wright Writer of Dayton member, is the speaker at the Stirring Up Food and Memories Seminar. A cookbook can contain more than recipes, it can be a historical document for your family.
