Now a major film starring Winona Ryder, Whoopi Goldberg and Vanessa Redgrave A clear-sighted and unflinching memoir of an eighteen-year-old girl about her two year stay in a psychiatric hospital for depression
Across the United Kingdom, streets are lined with Union Jacks in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee — 60 years since she inherited the crown in 1952. But with the Queen’s Golden Jubilee only a decade behind them, a royal wedding last year, and the Olympics coming up this summer, are Britons up for yet another party?Next, Nina Arianda is the it-girl on Broadway — she’s nominated for a Tony for her performance in David Ives’ comedy Venus In Fur. The show is a play within a play: a writer has adapted an erotic novel for the stage, and he’s having a hell of a time casting the lead. Enter Vanda: a sexy, sly actress who is by turns sultry and bombastic, and pretty much takes over the show. Then, in Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun, a black family buys a house in an all-white neighborhood — and even before they move in, the neighbors are up in arms. Karl Lindner, a member of the Clybourne Park property owners association, visits the buyers, suggesting that ´´Negro families are happier when they live in their own communities.” Following that, the San Antonio band Girl in a Coma formed over a junior high obsession over the tortured music of Morrissey. ´´I loved him so much it hurt,” says singer Nina Diaz, who was only 13 when she joined the band. ´´I turned vegetarian after that, started reading Oscar Wilde, eating yogurt and bagels and trying to be just like him.” Bassist Jenn Alva remembers, ´´We had posters all over the room, and we would talk to them.” After that, according to the Entertainment Software Association, 72% of American households play videogames while, according to the Motion Picture Association of America, 67% of Americans went to the movies. If those figures are both correct, videogames might now be the great American pastime. And finally, WNYC listener Julie Bayley grew up watching daytime talk shows to catch comics like Rodney 1.

One Girl Cookies:Recipes for Cakes, Cupcakes, Whoopie Pies, and Cookies from Brooklyn´s Beloved Bakery Clarkson Potter Dawn Casale, David Crofton
Absolut fabelhaft sind Edina Monsoon und ihre beste Freundin Patsy - zwei Frauen, die erfolgreich im Modebusiness tätig sind, ansonsten jedoch mit absoluter Ahnungslosigkeit glänzen und sich weigern, erwachsen zu werden. In ihrer Freizeit widmen sie sich daher lieber den wirklich wichtigen Dingen des Lebens: Sie dröhnen sich mit Koks und Champagner voll, schmeißen endlose Partys und tragen haarsträubende Outfits. *** Special Guests: Naomi Campbell, Spice Girl Emma Bunton, Elton John, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Blondie Deborah Harry, Rufus Wainwright und Whoopi Goldberg!
Björk, Dr Seuss, Whoopi Goldberg, Andy Warhol, Ellen MacArthur, Greta Gerwig, Andrea Bocelli, Hua Mulaa...these are men and women who all dared to be different. Boys will be boys and girls will be girls - or so the meaningless saying goes. Because what if you´re a girl and you like cage fighting? Or you´re a boy and you love ballet? And what if you´ve always dreamed of being a scientist but you can´t see anyone who looks or sounds like you, and who has left a legacy - in the form of microscopes and Bunsen burners - for you to follow? This is the audiobook for children who want to know about the lives of those heroes who have led the way, changing the world for the better as they go. Following the runaway success of Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, parents asked for a celebration of role models of both genders for boys and girls within the same audiobook. Stories for Kids Who Dare to Be Different is the answer. These are the extraordinary stories of 100 famous and not-so-famous men and women, every single one of them an inspiring pioneer and creative genius in their own way, who broke the mould and made their dreams come true. Like Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, this is an evocative and inspirational audiobook of amazing stories of amazing people that will delight sons and daughters, nephews and nieces, and give them the courage to be themselves. 1.

In What I Told My Daughter, entertainment executive Nina Tassler has brought together a powerful, diverse group of women - from Madeleine Albright to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, from Dr. Susan Love to Whoopi Goldberg - to reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child. A college president teaches her daughter, by example, the importance of being a leader who connects with everyone - from the ground up, literally - in an organization. A popular entertainer and former child star urges her daughter to walk in her own truth, to not break glass ceilings if she yearns to nurture a family as a stay-at-home mother or to abandon a career if that´s her calling. One of the country´s only female police chiefs teaches her daughter the meaning of courage, how to respond to danger, and, more importantly, how not to let fear stop her from experiencing all that life has to offer. A best-selling writer who has deliberated for years on empowering girls wonders if we´re unintentionally leading them to believe they can never make mistakes when ´´resiliency is more important than perfection´´. 1.
