Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Rainwood House, lightly haunted by old civil rights struggles and musical plumbing, is home to beleaguered University of Maryland groundskeeper Marlie Mendival and her bat- and book-loving granddaughter Samantha. Marlie rents a room to Demetrius, an affable radical horticulturist, unaware that prior to knocking on her front door Demetrius has been hiding from the police in her basement. Marlie battles mounting bills, bellowing pipes, a lecherous boss, her ex's scheme to evict her from Rainwood House, isolation and self-doubt, as Samantha becomes embroiled in playground culture wars. Demetrius pokes around Rainwood House's shuttered rooms wondering how to beat accusations of cop-shooting and terrorism while remaining incognito under Samantha's friendly but sharp-eyed gaze. Increasingly entangled in each others' lives, the characters join forces with glamorous union shop steward Laranda Moss and a lively crew of supporters to launch, in the words of Labor Notes editor Jane Slaughter, "a cascade of idyllic solutions to very real-world problems," including a friendship club, a people's history museum and a present-day Underground Railroad stop. Written and illustrated by Juliana Barnet with her daughter, co-author/co-illustrator Sophia Barnet-Higgins, Rainwood House Sings paints a true-to-life yet mildly magical picture of activists tackling mysteries great and small with creativity, humor and collective action. Rainwood House Sings is published by Life in the Liberated Zone. LLZ's purpose is to further understanding of activist culture through truthful fiction for youth and adults focused on the lives and adventures of folks living in the belly of the beast while struggling to change it.

L'autore: Juliana Barnet is a social justice activist, artist, musician, anthropologist, writer, popular educator, Spanish language translator and interpreter, working in the DC area and in Mexico. Many of the situations in Rainwood House Sings are drawn from her own experiences and those of her friends, colleagues and comrades. An avid reader of fiction and increasingly frustrated at seeing folks from her ?tribe?-the worldwide community of social justice activists-often depicted in literature as cold-hearted, crazy, dogmatic, manipulative, hypocritical, and other evil stereotypes-when they appear at all!-she decided to start writing fiction about her community that is both genuine and entertaining, and to encourage others to do the same. Juliana lives in Maryland with Brian Higgins, coauthor/illustrator/daughter Sophie Barnet-Higgins, and Melau the dog. Sophie Barnet-Higgins has always loved writing stories, as well as doing theater and especially drawing, which, as with Rainwood House Sings character ?Samantha,? used to get her into trouble at school. Undaunted, she continued developing her talent in sketchbooks and on the computer. Now in the Visual and Performing Arts program at her public high school she no longer fears being reprimanded for drawing (as long as the sketches on her homework stay in the margins). She?s also an enthusiast of manga and anime, cooking, doing art with little kids, reading and singing. And Tumblr! She is fluent in Spanish and is studying Japanese.

Descrizione libro Llz. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 462 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.2in.In this social justice mystery, the beleaguered residents of lightly haunted Rainwood House face eviction, sexual harassment, mounting bills, musical plumbing, religious confusion, accusations of terrorism, and more, by starting a peoples history museum and an Underground Railroad stop for activists. Marlie Mendival, owner of lightly haunted Rainwood House fights eviction, sexual harassment, mounting bills, and musical plumbing, aided by her quirky granddaughter, cheerful radical horticulturist housemate (who is secretly fleeing an accusation of cop-shooting), glamorous union friend, and a host of lively, funny and passionate supporters. Rainwood House, a decaying post-Civil War abode full of musical plumbing, rampant house plants and whispering voices of old civil rights struggles, is home to campus groundskeeper Marlie Mendival and her quirky granddaughter Samantha. Marlie rents a room to Demetrius, a cheerful radical horticulturist--unaware that before presenting himself at her front door Demetrius had been hiding from the police in her basement. Marlie battles mounting bills, bellowing pipes, a lecherous boss, her exs scheme to evict her from Rainwood House, isolation and self-doubt. Samantha becomes embroiled in playground culture wars and Demetrius, still incognito, pokes around Rainwood Houses shuttered rooms wondering how to beat accusations of cop-shooting and terrorism. Increasingly entangled in each others lives, the characters join forces with glamorous union shop steward Laranda and a lively crew of supporters to launch, in the words of Labor Notes editor Jane Slaughter, a cascade of idyllic solutions to very real-world problems, both wise and hilarious, including a peoples history museum and a present-day Underground Railroad stop. Written and illustrated by Juliana Barnet with her daughter, co-authorco-illustrator Sophia Barnet-Higgins, Rainwood House Sings paints a lighthearted, mildly magical but authentic picture of activists tackling mysteries great and small with creativity, humor and collective action.
