Preparing for Renovation: A Podcast of "Angela's Wisdom"

Angela’s Wisdom, published at the 2001 Worldcon, was written by a mother and daughter. The daughter,- now 18, reads a story about the importance of literacy.

When you listen to the podcast episode you will hear that the producers Dave and Ben recorded a brief introduction (in addition to the usual AboutSF podcast intro) which includes information on RFF and information about the workshop at Renovation, the 2011 Worldcon.

The podcast and interviews are mentioned on the AboutSF website, too. There you can listen to the podcast, read more about the education workshop at Renovation from the AboutSF perspective, and then explore the many lessons and book reviews available on the site. You can also check out the AboutSF forum on science fiction.

A Message from Ben

"All of these more technical issues aside, what a wonderful story! I want to thank all of you so much for your great efforts and your willingness to share "Angela's Wisdom" with people through the AboutSF podcast. Also, I hope that the podcast episode will help to advertise the workshop at Renovation

"So far this month we've had 231 new subscribers to the podcast, and I believe last month there were 180 new subscribers. Hopefully the podcast will encourage people to attend Renovation and to sign up for the workshop.

"Thanks again, to everyone, for all of your help!"

~ Ben Cartwright, Volunteer coordinator, AboutSF

Sign-up for the workshop ends on June 30, 2011.
