Today I would usually be posting over on The Blood Red Pencil, but I invited another blogger to post about a most fascinating project.
Roseanne Rini, one of the editors with Story Circle Network, has thirty-five years of experience teaching college English and Women's Studies and a special interest in women's diaries and memoirs.
Her post today is about a book called Nella Last's War: The Second World War Diaries of Housewife, 49, about a program in Great Britain back during the time of WWII. Housewives were asked to keep a diary and send in their entries to a social research program. Nella Last did that, diligently. She was, in fact, the only one who continued to send in her posts for longer than two years. She sent entries in for almost 30 years.
The story of Nella and the Mass Observation social research program is fascinating.
I hope you'll link over and read Roseanne Rini's post. If you're like me, you'll be wanting to buy the book called Nella Last's War.
Here's the link to her post. Leave a comment there.
