In honor of the recent defeat of nationally ranked UCLA, we present Martha Woodroof's conversation with longtime JMU Women's Basketball coach Kenny Brooks. Note - This interview originally aired May 30, 2014 and at that time, the JMU Women's Basketball team had just defeated UVa.
This is part two of Martha's conversation with writer Jack Greer. They talk about the four years he mostly spent sailing the Caribbean on a 40 ft sailboat with his wife Bobbi. Oh yes, and about changing from writing mostly non-fiction to fiction.
In part one of Martha's conversation with writer Jack Greer, she asks him why he is as drawn to water as a sugar ant is to chocolate cake. Their conversation also centers on his involvement with the efforts to reclaim the Chesapeake Bay.
Martha Woodroof speaks with Staunton’s Lisa Jacenich, a fiber artist who creates felt garments, scarves, and art out of a fabric she describes as, "not your grandmother’s felt."
At Lisa's website, Artful Gifts, you can learn more about creating felt, which involves, "a process of laying out combed or carded fibers of wool either in the ultimate shape for their use or as a sheet of fabric later to be sewn into a garment."
