Reference Librarian on Chuckanut Radio Hour

Last night I got to perform my song "Reference Librarian" on the Chuckanut Radio Hour.  The author/guest was the world's most famous librarian, Nancy Pearl, which is why I was included.  Great fun.  You can see it on my FB page or Village books.  It will eventually be on the radio and the web.  THank you VB for the opportunity.

When Women Didn't Count: Review on Gov-Stuff 4 U

Thanks to Lori L. Smith for the kind words at Gov Stuff 4 U. 

In the book, society's (and government's) changing attitudes toward women are chronicled through statistics on marriage, motherhood, heads of households, occupations, health, crime, and military service, among other topics. The focus isn't on the statistics themselves, but on how and why they were collected as they were. It is, indeed, both fascinating and disturbing.
