  • Nurturing Respect: Giving Children an Understanding of Their Elders

    “We live in a world of accelerating change and one of the most significant changes is human longevity.  This has an impact not only on the length of our lives but also on the quality of those years as well. Unfortunately, little is done to educate people when they are young — from elementary school on — as to what they should expect.  Gerald Larue’s book shows that something can be done — indeed, is being done — that could serve as a guide to all school systems in addressing this need.  It is critical, because our health, economic security and happiness in later years are highly dependent on the choices we make and actions we taken when younger.  The volunteer experience described in this book also shows us how to take into the years of wisdom and experience of older people to make the educational experience very real and enjoyable.  I highly recommend NURTURING RESPECT to all interested in shaping a better quality of life for all.” — Horace Deets, Former Executive Director of AARP, Research Fellow to Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Age Lab, Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford University’s Institute of Ageing, and Chair of the Board of Help Age International, and Board Member of National Council of La Raza

  • If I Had a Hammer: Women’s Work in Poetry, Fiction, and Photographs

    Empowerment and self-determination are two words that come to mind when trying to describe this collection.  This is not to say that a utopian workplace is portrayed herein.  Exploitation has not been eradicated; equal pay is still the goal, not the reality.  Work can often be boring and unfulfilling.

    But women here are not victims.  These are strong women — survivors.  They set boundaries, take risks, demand respect, and maintain their self-esteem, with or without the help of management, coworkers, family or friends.  And they do it with a sense of humor!  In traditional and nontraditional jobs, at home and in the workplace, these women are using their power to take charge of their own lives, challenging each of us to do the same.

  • At Our Core: Women Writing About Power

    Sandra Haldeman Martz — whose bestselling anthology series celebrating women’s lives brought us I Am Becoming the Woman I’ve Wanted (winner of a 1995 American Book Award) and If I Had a Hammer: Women’s Work — explores another profound issue for women: our concept of power in our lives.  At Our Core: Women Writing about Power articulates the awesome breadth and subtlety of what power means to women.

    These stories, poems, and photographs convey the phenomenon of women being in control of their own lives.  We know these women — some of whom have been hurt physically, emotionally, or spiritually — who yearn to be understood, to be allowed to participate as equals, to live each day with peace.

    Breathtakingly honest and courageous, these voices honor and validate women’s uniquely personal definitions of power.  Women will cry and rejoice at the searing beauty of these intimately familiar stories.

  • I Am Becoming The Woman I’ve Wanted

    I Am Becoming the Woman I’ve Wanted, the latest in the series of best-selling anthologies (When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple and If I Had My Life to Live Over I would Pick More Daisies), delves into the sometimes hidden and always powerful feelings that women have about their bodies.  In the emotionally evocative style that characterizes Martz’s previous collections, this book explores coming of age, sexuality, child-birth, physical power, menopause, aging, and much more.

    This is more than just another book about body image.  Using her talent for bringing together extraordinary stories, poems, and photographs about women’s lives, editor Sandra Martz explores the broader question of how the physical aspects of being female affect women’s experiences.  This best-selling anthology will have women reading and thinking and sharing for a long time.

    This companion volume to the award-winning anthology, When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple, illuminates the experiences of women, young and old, reflecting on the choices they have made.
