Women of the Beat generation : the writers, artists, and muses at the heart of a revolution by Brenda Knight( Book )

29 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WOMEN'S STUDIES Knight, a scholar of medieval literature and modern poetry, has put together biographical sketches of 36 women designated as precursors, muses, writers, or artists who participated in the Beat movement of the 1950s and early 1960s. There are selections from their literary works (some previously unpublished), cameo insets about other women Beats, and many wonderful photographs. Diane di Prima's 'Rant' is here ('history is a living weapon in yr hand/& you have imagined it') and Anne Waldman's 'Fast Speaking Woman,' as well as excerpts from the memoirs of Carolyn Cassady, Edie Parker Kerouac, Janine Pommy Vega, Brenda Frazier, Leo Skir, and less-famous others. Identification and celebration are the intent of the work, and the editor's comments contain little analysis. Thus, unsettling incidents, such as William Borroughs's killing his wife in a close-range, William Tell situation, are recounted but not examined, and much of the information seems undigested. Still, there is no other comparable collection. Though imperfect, this work is an important purchase for academic and public libraries. Carolynne Myall, Eastern Washington Univ. Libs.-

Be a good in the world : 365 days of good deeds, inspired ideas and acts of kindness by Brenda Knight( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Author Brenda Knight, part of the team who made the world a better place with "Random Acts of Kindness" as well as a little more thankful with "The Grateful Table," writes "At the end of life, I feel sure having lots of money, fancy cars and real estate is not nearly as important as how much love you gave to the world." This realization was the inspiration for Be a Good In the World, a book of "good days" filled with ideas for making a difference"--
The grateful table : blessings, prayers, and graces for the daily meal by Brenda Knight( Book )

What would happen if you sat down to dinner with the likes of Alicia Keyes, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Lynch, Morgan Freeman, Sir Ben Kingsley, Alton Brown, Neil Gaiman, Deepak Chopra and David Foster Wallace? Fascinating conversation, without doubt, and one of the things that all these folks have in common is that they practice gratitude and have a lot to say about it. These thinkers and luminaries included in The Grateful Table make this a thoroughly modern book of blessings, both heartfelt and deeply profound. Saying grace is one of our loveliest traditions and one that has stood the test o

Celebrate National Random Acts of Kindness Week in February. Perform deeds of compassion and consideration toward others. The Random Acts of Kindness movement is born. In 1995, a small group of people at Conari Press came together around the idea that small gestures and simple acts can make a difference in people's lives. Thus, Random Acts of Kindness was born. But they had no idea how big this little idea would become. The change you want to see in the world. This good-humored guide to being the change you want to see in the world is filled with suggestions for making a real difference, in ways both large and small. From improving someone’s life with just one penny to ensuring all children are well fed, the day-by-day positive proposals of Random Acts of Kindness combine inspiration with action. Despite the hurly-burly of our busy lives, we can all make a beneficial impact on the environment, throughout out local community, and within our own hearts. This book of inspired ideas and good deeds conveys how "the power of one'--that is, you--can make a better world, starting today! Sometimes the smallest gesture makes the biggest difference. This little book shows how to start--with the small, with the particular, with the individual--in order to make a difference in the world
