November  2020

2020 has proven to be quite a challenge to us all.  Wildfires destroying Australia, a worldwide pandemic, isolation, hurricanes, wind storms in the Midwest US, devastating fires in multiple west coast states, a contentious Presidential election, the death of many public figures including a beloved Supreme Court Justice, knife attacks n France, the Summer Olympics were pushed to 2021, many other sporting events were postponed or canceled, the UK Withdrew from the European Union, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to the US, along with so many other weird, odd, and devastating consequences.  It is the reason we all need to look to the Arts to soothe our souls. To allow for escapism, to travel to another world, to learn a new talent, reveal humanity or to imagine something far different.      

 

 Interesting Coming Events for Out and About .....

Happenings..........

Bob Stone, whom you have seen as our professional photographer at essential events, is working on his series of children’s books centered around Ryley, a young girl who takes ballet lessons and loves sports and her friends. Her various activities as she and they succeed in a number of various sports events are geared for middle grade students. We look forward to his new book now being prepared by a new artist. This one is about soccer, where Ryley helps a young piano player prove she can succeed at playing the piano and playing soccer.

Dr. Deborah Lee Prescott has written another book. After her successful run with Mitzvah, which she also presented as a play in West Palm Beach at the Kravitz Center, she is hard at work presenting something else about a “darn cat.” That, too, will be in a play at the Kravitz Center in a few months. Meanwhile, she is on a jaunt to the ARCTIC. A world traveler, she brings such joy to others in relating her experiences, in teaching and in her enthusiasm for writing stories children love . Her latest book is Mazeltov, Mitzvah. This, too, will be translated into different languages, as are her others. It’s all so exciting.

Frank Ferrante has a book in the works - a coffee table book of his extraordinary oil paintings. The book is in the early, design phase and will take several months to complete. Once published he will have a book signing at The Hub in NSB.

The plein air images will follow the progression of Frank's art from the snowy scenes and pine tree marsh paintings of his New Jersey days, to the seascapes and palm tree marsh paintings inspired by his move to Florida.

What to expect from this page.... 

YOU WILL FIND MANY AUTHORS RELATING TO ONE ANOTHER, PRAISING BOOKS, SENDING US EXCERPTS AND TELLING US ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

In the past we have not had time to fill this age with all the wonderful things you have all been doing , PLEASE, PLEASE,  send us the pictures (JPEG format) and details from now one.  We will be posting them and you can not only see  yourselves listed and becoming more known, but you will also inspire other writers.  When I was first approached by publishers I  did not know much about publicity or how to reach the public and become known. I learned much now after seeing our wonderful writers at work. Serious writers want their words to be appreciated by all—they want what they have to say spread to the public.

We now have a person on board who will help us out very much. This is the first OUT AND ABOUT and READ ALL ABOUT IT.  

More will be forthcoming. Keep looking at this page to be inspired.
