Summary

Prairie Bloomin’: The Prairie Blossoms for an Immigrant's Daughter, 1889-1900.  
Butter in the Well Series, Book 2 . 
Popular Kansas author Linda K. Hubalek continues the story of a Swedish immigrant family featured in the Butter in the Well series with the second book Prairie Bloomin' (formerly titled Prärieblomman).  
Prairie Bloomin' features the 1889 to 1900 diary of daughter Alma Swenson, as she grows up on the farm her parents homesteaded.  
Even though born on the same farm in two different centuries, Prairie Bloomin’s main character, Alma Swenson Runneberg, and the author shared uncanny similarities while growing up in the Smoky Valley region of central Kansas. Both the third child of their families, they lived in the same house, played in the same yard and worked the same acres until each married and moved off the farm.  
“…is a tender and touching diary…Hubalek has succeeded in blowing life into both Alma and the fascinating times she lived through. Hubalek’s books give Swedish-Americans a perspective of the past.” Anders Neumueller, Swedish Press, Vancouver, BC Canada.  
“Hubalek takes the reader on a journey to another time and place with this sequel to Butter in the Well. Swedish traditions are intertwined with tidbits from Kansas history in this unique historical diary.” Andrea Glenn, Editor of KANSAS! Magazine.

    Whether referred to as web gear, TE-21, TA50, LBE or LCE, the American soldier's individual combat equipment was seldom praised – except by its developers. Nevertheless, it has always been, and will continue to be an essential part of the fighting man's burden. With the aid of plenty of contemporary photographs, diagrams, and eight full page colour plates by Osprey veteran Ron Volstad, Gordon Rottman's text unearths a wealth of information on the changing nature of US combat equipments from 1910-1988.

    e Modern State of Israel explores the lot of the Jewish people in their dispersion in the world for the past two thousand years. After their persecution and their expulsion from many nations, their desire to establish a home of their own, where they can rule themselves and not be the subjects of their overlords, is understandable. It is believed by many Christians that the State of Israel is an absolute necessity for the strategic and longterm determination of world events. It is said that the Bible provides support for their case. Events such as the coming of the Antichrist and the battle of Armageddon cannot take place without Israel. Christ, consequently, cannot return to establish the Millennium. Why did God choose Abraham as his seed and why did he give them land? e answer to this question is of tremendous importance, for upon it hang the doctrines of future events. In this thoroughly researched review of Israel, past and present, S. K. Haddad hopes to show whether Israel has a biblical role in future world events or not.

    The Midsummer Mischief festival was produced at The Other Place at the Courtyard in summer 2014.
    The Ant and the Cicada: A mysterious investor has set his sights on a prime piece of Greek real estate.Owned by two sisters whose lives and beliefs are at odds, and with debts rising all the time, the property’s future is uncertain. In a Greek tragedy, everybody loses. Through the struggle between two very different sisters for control of their family home, Timberlake Wertenbaker’s new play explores why we are willing to let the home of art and democracy crumble as the rest of Europe looks on.
    Revolt. She said. Revolt again.
    You are expected to behave… Use the right words Act appropriately Don’t break the rules Just behave. This play is not well behaved. It examines the language, behaviour and forces
    that shape women in the 21st century and asks what’s stopping us from doing something truly radical to change them.
    I Can Hear You: Tommy is dead. It’s always tragic when they die young. People have posted loads of nice stuff on his Facebook page. His sister Ruth has returned for the funeral and wants to get it just right. Proper cutlery and a good spread. The send-off he deserved, and certainly better than they managed when mum died.
    The following Sunday Ruth’s plans to leave again are interrupted as the doorbell rings and in walks someone very unexpected.
    This naturalistic supernatural play examines what the possibilities are for the women in Tommy’s family, and questions if it’s as easy for everyone to reveal what it is they want.
    This is Not an Exit: One day Nora decides she can’t have it all: where would she put it? Desperate to fight but not knowing how or against what, she attempts to navigate the difficult terrain of womanhood; but certain others have different ideas... This new play is a funny and ferocious drama about the absurdity at the heart of modern womanhood, and what really stands in the way of fulfilment.
