Joan Crawford: The Last Word: Fred Lawrence Guiles Hollywood Collection Audiobook

Joan Crawford: The Last Word: Fred Lawrence Guiles Hollywood Collection

Author: Fred Lawrence Guiles Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: May 2020

For most of her adult life, Joan Crawford was a star who dedicated herself entirely to her career. But since her death, her luster has been tarnished. Here, at last, is a biography that sets the record straight. In her heyday, Joan Crawford was probably the most imitated woman in the world. Magazine covers featured her face, and high-school and college girls copied her makeup and clothing. Born Lucille Fay LeSueur in Kansas City, she spent her childhood on the edge of poverty. But an iron will developed in adolescence drove her to New York City and eventual work in a chorus line. Spotted by a Hollywood talent scout, she was soon on her way to the film capital. Four times married (to actors Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Franchot Tone, and Philip Terry and Pepsi-Cola executive Alfred Steele) and driven by powerful sexuality, Joan Crawford lived her life on the razor's edge. Yet she was a woman of great generosity who cared deeply for her four adopted children, although her ideas about discipline were colored by her own harsh upbringing. Her professional career spanned more than forty years and included such classics as Grand Hotel, Mildred Pierce, and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Her remarkable progression from silent films to talkies to television exemplified her ability to adapt, chameleon-like, to the ever-changing demands of the industry that in many senses invented her. A supplemental PDF is included with this audiobook.

You Talkin' To Me?: The Unruly History of New York English Audiobook

You Talkin' To Me?: The Unruly History of New York English

Author: E.J. White Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: May 2020

From paddy wagon to rush hour, New York City has given us a number of our popular words and phrases, along the way fashioning a recognizable dialect all its own. Often imitated and just as often ridiculed, New York English has its own identity, imbued with the rich cultural history of (as New Yorkers tell it) the greatest city in the world. How did this unique language community develop, and how has it shaped the city as we know it today? In You Talkin' to Me?, E. J. White explores the hidden history of English in New York City-a history that encompasses social class, immigration, culture, economics, and, of course, real estate. She tells entertaining stories of New York's most famous characters, streets, and cultural institutions, from Broadway to the newspaper office to the department store, illuminating a new dimension of the city's landscape. Full of little-known facts-C-3PO was originally written to have a New York accent; West Side Story was originally going to be East Side Story, about Jewish and Christian New Yorkers; and 'confidence man' started in reference to a specific New York City criminal-the book will delight lovers of language and history alike.

Kingdomtide Audiobook

Kingdomtide

Author: Rye Curtis Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin, Maggie-Meg Reed Release Date: January 2020

The lives of two women-the sole survivor of an airplane crash and the troubled park ranger who leads the rescue mission to find her -intersect in a gripping debut novel of hope and resilience, second thoughts and second chances I no longer pass judgment on any man nor woman. People are people, and I do not believe there is much more to be said on the matter. Twenty years ago I might have been of a different mind about that, but I was a different Cloris Waldrip back then. I might have gone on being that same Cloris Waldrip, the one I had been for seventy-two years, had I not fallen out of the sky in that little airplane on Sunday, August 31, 1986. It does amaze that a woman can reach the tail end of her life and find that she hardly knows herself at all. When seventy-two-year-old Cloris Waldrip finds herself lost and alone in the unforgiving wilderness of the Montana mountains, with only a bible, a sturdy pair of boots, and a couple of candies to keep her alive, it seems her chances of ever getting home to Texas are slim. Debra Lewis, a park ranger, who is drinking her way out of the aftermath of a messy divorce is the only one who believes the old lady may still be alive. Galvanized by her newfound mission to find her, Lewis leads a motley group of rescuers to follow the trail of clues that Cloris has left behind. But as days stretch into weeks, and Cloris's situation grows ever more precarious, help arrives from the unlikeliest of places, causing her to question all the certainties on which she has built her life. Suspenseful, wry and gorgeously written Kingdomtide is the inspiring account of two unforgettable characters, whose heroism reminds us that survival is only the beginning. 'Suspenseful from start to finish ... First novels are often praised for an author's potential, but Kingdomtide displays an exceptional talent fully realized' Ron Rash, New York Times bestselling author of Serena

The RBG Way: The Secrets of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Success Audiobook

The RBG Way: The Secrets of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Success

Author: Rebecca Gibian Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: November 2019

Given her incredible tenure as a Supreme Court justice as well as her monumental impact on the modern women's rights movement, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become one of the most prominent political leaders of today. To complement her judicial significance, she has also become one of the most culturally popular political figures in US history. Not only has her workout routine gone viral (and been detailed in a book by her trainer), but RBG's story has been featured in multiple critically acclaimed films. Organized into three parts and then broken down into more specific chapters within each part, The RBG Way offers wisdom from Justice Ginsburg, based on comments she has made on particular topics of importance. Insight is offered on subjects such as women's rights, creating lasting partnerships, overcoming hardship, how to be brave, and how to create lasting change. Rebecca Gibian offers her seasoned journalistic perspective to shed light on beliefs that RBG holds strongly, in a manner that is both comprehensive and accessible.

The End of Roe v. Wade: Inside the Right's Plan to Destroy Legal Abortion Audiobook

The End of Roe v. Wade: Inside the Right's Plan to Destroy Legal Abortion

Author: Jessica Mason Pieklo, Robin Marty Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: November 2019

In the past decade, right-wing efforts to end legal abortion in the United States have reached a fever pitch, with anti-abortion legislation being introduced in several 'red'-and even some 'purple'-states. This war on abortion has had a chilling effect on women's reproductive health, making abortion accessible in name only in multiple parts of the country due to a lack of clinics, high cost, extensive waiting periods, and other issues. And if Roe v. Wade is overturned, which is now quite possible with a conservative Supreme Court, half of the states in the US will likely make abortion completely illegal within their borders. The End of Roe v. Wade examines the systematic destruction of legal abortion on a state by state basis, as well as detailing the Trump administration's unprecedented efforts to end access to abortion and contraception on a federal level. This timely and urgent book also offers a harrowing glimpse into what a post-Roe America will look like, previewing the next major battle over abortion rights-pitting those who chose to end their pregnancies outside of the legal medical system against those who will prosecute them.

Women and Leadership Audiobook

Women and Leadership

Author: Deborah L. Rhode Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: March 2019

In Women and Leadership, the eminent legal scholar Deborah L. Rhode focuses on women's underrepresentation in leadership roles and asks why it persists and what we can do about it. Although organizations generally stand to gain from increasing gender equity in leadership, women's underrepresentation is persistent and pervasive. Rhode explores the reasons, including women's family roles, unconscious gender bias, and exclusion from professional development networks. She stresses that we cannot address the problem at the individual level; instead, she argues that we need broad-based strategies that address the deep-seated structural and cultural conditions facing women. She surveys a range of professions in politics, management, law, and academia and draws from a survey of prominent women to develop solutions that can successfully chip away at the imbalance. These include developing robust women-to-women networks, enacting laws and policies that address work/life imbalances, and training programs that start at an earlier age. Rhode's clear exploration of the leadership gap and her compelling policy prescriptions will make this an essential book for anyone interested in leveling the playing field for women leaders in America.

No Freedom Shrieker: The Civil War Letters of Union Soldier Charles Freeman Biddlecom Audiobook

No Freedom Shrieker: The Civil War Letters of Union Soldier Charles Freeman Biddlecom

Author: Katherine M. Aldridge  Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin, Johnny Heller Release Date: December 2018

Among the piles of obsolete farm and household implements, haystacks, dust, and debris abandoned in her historic barn, Katie Aldridge discovered a box containing the Civil War letters of Charles Freeman Biddlecom. Painstakingly transcribing and lightly editing more than 100 letters written by the soldier to his wife during his service, Ms. Aldridge resurrected the voice of the Civil War combat soldier. The tone and character of "Charlie's" detailed accounts of the war compelled Ms. Aldridge to find out more. From letters written throughout Grant's Overland Campaign the listener gains an insider's view of the war: fear, hunger, sickness, longing, and concern for those left behind as well as detailed insights about the political climate. Writing from the perspective shaped in an Upstate New York community closely linked to the abolitionist cause, woman's suffrage, and the Quaker philosophy, the listener will learn how Charlie's background shaped his actions and view of the war.
