Join Ginny Scheer, folklorist and Executive Director of Catskills Folk Connection, on Catkills Folk to talk about "Anonymous Was A Woman", a book published in the 1970s, that still has insights for women today. It was written by Mirra Bank, a documentary filmmaker who created a PBS special of the same name. Learn about ordinary women's aesthetic and artistic accomplishments by listening at 91.3 FM or at www.wioxradio.org.
To see some of the folk art Ginny will talk about deep this blog open on your laptop, on your computer, or on your cell phone and stay right here . We'll be looking at and discussing the quilt below and other woman-made folk art (in the article further below) and you'll be able to follow along.
See you on the radio! (to quote Charles Osgood, the late radio and TV commentator who explored the America of ordinary people.)
