Alaska women : a databook by Karen White( )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data book uses survey and census information to record social and economic changes of the past three decades and their effects upon the role of Alaska women in society. Results show Alaska women comprise 47% of the state population, an increase of 9% since 1950. Marriage continues as the predominant living arrangement for Alaska women, although the periods of singlehood appear to be lengthening. Women marry earlier than men in Alaska, a fact that may account for women's delayed entry into higher education and the job market. Women in Alaska generally have children at a younger age than do women nationally. Alaska working women with college degrees earn only two-thirds of what working men with similar education earn. The financial contribution of working wives in Alaska results in a 30% increase in median family income. The proportion of women who head households in Alaska has doubled since 1960. Alaska women have higher educational attainment than their national counterparts. Since 1950, Alaska women have increased their labor force participation by 548%, a faster rate than for women nationally. Alaska families headed by single women have median incomes two and a half times smaller than married couple families. While the fertility rate is declining, Alaska Natives continue to have historically higher fertility rates than other racial groups in Alaska and the nation. Divorce has steadily increased for both men and women in Alaska. In 1980, Alaska women over age 65 had the highest incidence of poverty than any age group in either sex. 13 references. (Tes)

The last ballad : a novel by Wiley Cash( Recording )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Six days a week, Ella May Wiggins makes the two-mile trek to and from her job on the twelve-hour night shift at American Mill No. 2 in Bessemer City, North Carolina. Her husband has run off again, and she must keep her four children alive with whatever she can find. It's 1929, and the insular community expects the mill's owners to pay the workers less because they toil alongside African Americans like Violet, Ella May's best friend. While the dirty, hazardous job earns Ella May a paltry nine dollars a week, it's the only opportunity she has. When union leaflets begin circulating, Ella May has a rare taste of hope, a yearning for the better life the organizers promise. But the mill owners claim the union is a front for the communist menace sweeping across Europe, and they will resort to bloodshed to prevent workers from banding together. On the night of an important rally, Ella May, weighing the costs of her long hours and the empty bellies of her children, makes up her mind to join the movement -- a decision that will have lasting consequences for all that she loves. Seventy-five years later, Ella May's daughter Lilly, now an elderly woman, tells her nephew about his grandmother and the events that transformed their family. Illuminating the most painful corners of their history, she reveals for the first time the tragedy that befell Ella May after that fateful union meeting."--
Fit to die by Ellery Adams( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Henry, a lovable librarian, has gotten used to being back home in Quincy's Gap, a tiny town in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. He has a job he adores, a group of close friends and fellow dieters who call themselves the "Flab Five," and is actually thinking about starting an exercise regime. *The supper club mysteries were originally published under the name J.B. Stanley. They have since been rewritten to create a better reading experience. Six months after starting a low-carb diet, however, James and the Flab Five have fallen off the diet wagon. A new ice cream shop has opened in town, but so has the Witness to Fitness weight loss center, run by the zealous Veronica Levitt. Maybe Veronica's fanatical approach is just what the group needs. But when James and his fellow dieters poke around in an arson case that turns into a murder investigation, the Flab Five discover that they may have bitten off more than they can chew. It isn't long before James wonders if he can handle cardio classes, a budding romance, his cranky father, and a duplicitous killer without binging on too ice cream

My utmost : a devotional memoir by Macy Halford( Recording )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the beautifully written and heartfelt memoir of a young woman from Dallas, Texas, wrestling with the evangelical Christianity of her childhood by examining the one item from it that she is still attached to, the daily devotional My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. Raised in an evangelical household by her beloved grandmother and mother, Macy Halford eventually leaves Dallas for a career in journalism in New York City. She has only the devotional to remind her of her religious past--and learns quickly that, though the book sells nearly a million copies a year, no one she knows there has heard of it. Finally, excavating her spiky relations with her upbringing, she quits her coveted job at the New Yorker in order to look more deeply into the background of the devotional--with its daily selection from the sermons and writings of the Scottish evangelical preacher Oswald Chambers--wrestling with who Chambers really was, what ideas informed his teaching and beliefs, and why the book means so much to her. Halford interweaves her own story with that of the Chambers family: Oswald, who died ministering to British soldiers in Egypt in World War I, and his devoted wife, who spent her life publishing his speeches, sermons, and books. The result is that Halford has penned a captivating and candid memoir about what it means to be a Christian, a reader, and a seeker in the twenty-first century
