As you may remember, Sandy Asher and I are planning a new episode of WRITERS AT WORK, probably for April or May. We’re waiting for a time when our schedules allow us to complete this new one, which we’re calling “In Search of Authenticity.”
Herman Johansen just brought to my attention an article in “Footlights” about Black History Month, Sojourner Truth, and Sandy’s play about her. This marvelous play has been around for a while now and is one of Sandy’s best known works. Add this to her latest coup — her play, “Walking Toward America,” about Ilga Katais-Paeglis Vise has been accepted into the UNITED SOLO FESTIVAL on Times Square, with Annie Meek Montgomery doing a full performance, on September 27 — and Sandy can already call 2015 a great year. Way to go, Sandy!
