By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

Just after I returned from Africa last August, my writing professor at UB (Marion Winik, whose interview I posted here last week) sent me an email asking me if I had seen the film, “Searching for Sugar Man,” because of its strong South African connection. As I wrote in a blog back then, as soon […]

Another kind of time

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | 3 Comments

A few weeks ago, my niece – who is more than just a niece; she’s like a combination of a sister and a bosom buddy – recommended a memoir by the prolific writer and theologian, Frederick Buechner. She thought that, as a nonfiction writer and an occasional memoirist myself, I would appreciate his style, and […]

Comedy with an edge

By Judith Krummeck | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

A program note for the Folger Theatre’s current production of “Twelfth Night” points out that this is the last of Shakespeare’s “romantic” or “happy” comedies, and that those that followed, like “Measure for Measure” and “All’s Well That Ends Well” are less innocent and more complicated.

If you’re a long-time member of WBJC, you may remember that, back in the dark ages before we went electronic, I wrote an article once for the old WBJC program guide in which I admitted that I was an Emanuel Ax groupie. Well, we may be up to minute with blogs and Twitter and a […]
