Sandy Asher

Hi everyone,

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!

  1. Yea, Sandy! I am a member of a few Facebook writing groups who have lately shown a lot of love to Sandy’s book WRITING IT RIGHT: HOW CHILDREN’S AUTHORS PERFECT AND SELL THEIR STORIES. Published in 2009, it’s still seen as a must-have for aspiring writers. Thank you, Sandy.

  2. Our Drama Group here in Joplin will have a program on the 13th about Sandy’s play, “Little Old Ladies in Tennis Shoes,” which will be produced in Carthage’s Stone Throw Dinner Theatre on March 20-22 and March 27-29. I’m doing the program, and Sandy already helped by answering questions I had on the play. I read it recently and love it.
