Ruth Ozeki, published writer and Jill Anderson devotee, has a novel out that we’d love to share with you!
“A cross-cultural tale of two women brought together by the intersections of television and industrial agriculture, fertility and motherhood, life and love—the breakout hit by the celebrated author of A Tale for the Time Being
Ruth Ozeki’s mesmerizing debut novel has captivated readers and reviewers worldwide. When documentarian Jane Takagi-Little finally lands a job producing a Japanese television show that just happens to be sponsored by an American meat-exporting business, she uncovers some unsavory truths about love, fertility, and a dangerous hormone called DES. Soon she will also cross paths with Akiko Ueno, a beleaguered Japanese housewife struggling to escape her overbearing husband. Hailed by USA Today as “rare and provocative” and awarded the Kirayama Prize for Literature of the Pacific Rim, My Year of Meatsis a modern-day take on Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle for fans of Michael Pollan, Margaret Atwood, and Barbara Kingsolver.”

We are very excited for Cyndi Lee, a wonderful JA devotee–Her new memoir, May I Be Happy: A Memoir of Love, Yoga and Changing My Mind, has recently been published and has been getting great reviews! Congratulations Cyndi! Support a Jill Anderson customer and spread the word!
“For all her wisdom as a teacher, Cyndi Lee—founder of New York’s world renowned OM yoga Center—understood intuitively that she still had a lot to learn. In spite of her success in physically demanding professions—dancer, choreographer, and yoga teacher—Lee was caught in a lifelong cycle of repetitive self-judgment about her body. Instead of the radical contentment expected in international yoga teachers, she realized that hating her body was a form of suffering, which was infecting her closest relationships—including her relationship to herself.”

Below is a photo of Cyndi at Randolph College in a favorite Jill Anderson dress, the Italian Widow. Looking great!

Opening on March 22nd at the Quad Cinema in NYC is the documentary You Don’t need Feet to Dance. This documentary shares the story of Sidiki Conde, husband to the talented artist and JA devotee, Deborah Ross. We are very excited for Sidiki and Deborah and look forward to the opening!
“In the documentary film You Don’t Need Feet to Dance, African immigrant Sidiki Conde, having lost the use of his legs to polio at fourteen, balances his career as a performing artist with the almost insurmountable obstacles of life in New York City, from his fifth-floor walk up apartment in the East village, down the stairs with his hands and navigating in his wheelchair through Manhattan onto buses and into the subway.
Sidiki struggles to cope with his disability and to earn a decent living, but he still manages to teach workshops for disabled kids, busk on the street, rehearse with his musical group, bicycle with his hands, and prepare for a baby naming ceremony, where he plays djembe drums, sings, and dances on his hands.”

Keri Pickett, filmmaker and Jill Anderson customer, had produced and directed a film documenting a century of Theatrical Skating called “The Fabulous Ice Age.”
“The Fabulous Ice Age” chronicles the era of the great American touring iceshows revealing how, with their dazzling production numbers and variety acts, they dominated family entertainment for decades. It also depicts one skater’s quest to keep this history from being forgotten. The ice shows’ creation and success changed the lives of skaters and audiences alike – eventually exporting American culture around the world. Rare archival footage, candid interviews with producers, skating legends and devoted chorus gypsies bring this never-before-told history of a uniquely American art form to life.”
“The Fabulous Ice Age” chronicles a century of theatrical skating, from Berlin’s Charlotte, to America’s Ice Follies, Ice Capades, Holiday on Ice, and the Sonja Henie shows, illustrating how they dominated live entertainment for decades while also depicting one skaters’ quest to share this history….Never before seen footage, photos and rare archival material introduce us to a handful of skaters, producers and entrepreneurs who helped change their world. Starting in America with the Hippodrome and hotel shows and big arenas, we then see how Holiday on Ice brought skating to Europe, behind the Iron Curtain, to Asia, Africa and South America., where ice had never been seen before.”
