Joanna Kraus: Premiere for Her Play, “Tamales and Roses”
Joanna Kraus was the guest of Utah Valley University, Orem, Utah, March 15-18 to attend the commissioned premiere of her new play, “Tamales and Roses” based on her popular picture book “A Night of Tamales and Roses.” While there she taught a master class and conducted Q and Q sessions with university students and audiences. The story is about a flower girl who gets stage fright and can’t walk down the aisle to start the wedding ceremony. To her surprise her Hispanic family still loves her. After several performances in the Noorda Theatre on campus, the bi-lingual play will tour area Utah elementary schools. Kraus is the author of several prize-winning Theatre for Young Audience scripts and her latest picture book, “Bravo Benny” is forthcoming.

Get 10,000 Twitter Followers: Easily, Quickly, Ethically
Twitter. Does that word make your blood run cold? It did mine until, after reading lots of books on how to just do Twitter, I gave up and figured it out for myself. I am a right-brain technophobe/Luddite who sells real estate and writes about it. Why did I bother with Twitter? Because not only has it become the No. 1 place to promote a product or service-it’s the de facto news source today. Maybe you don’t need to promote a product or service. You just want to know what’s going on. You go to Twitter and are overwhelmed by the gibberish. In my new book, Get 10,000+ Twitter Followers-Easily, Quickly, Ethically, I show you (with lots of screenshots) how to:
Set yourself up on Twitter
Interpret any tweet (the three keys)
Amass thousands of followers in less than ten minutes a day
All explained in a way that other technophobes, like me, can understand.
