The Wrong Kind of Woman“The Wrong Kind of Woman”
by Sarah McCraw Crow  

A powerful exploration of what a woman can be when what she should be is no longer an option.  

In late 1970, Oliver Desmarais drops dead while hanging Christmas lights. In the year that follows, his widow, Virginia, struggles to find her place on the campus of the elite Clarendon College where Oliver was a professor. While Virginia had always shared her husband’s prejudices against the four outspoken, never-married women on the faculty, she now finds herself depending on them.

The true story of a devastating flood that destroys six-year-old Suzie Jones’s house and calls into question everything she thought she knew about home, family, and God.  

It’s the summer of 1972, when six-year-old Suzie Jones and her siblings are whisked away from their home in the middle of the night, never to return again.

“Liberty” is a must read for every American concerned about the senseless proliferation of gun violence and mass shootings in the United States!  

Few issues merit as much debate in the 21st century as Second Amendment rights and gun control versus gun rights issues. “Liberty,” the second play in this trilogy, shines a spotlight on Second Amendment abuses/protections, with our founding fathers witnessing the hypothetical trial of the President of the National Rifle Association through a one-way window in the courtroom.  

The proceedings are interspersed with the rationale our framers used in penning the Second Amendment, questioning its applicable use as a defense for military assault style rifles commonly used in mass shootings, that are so easy to purchase. “Liberty” is a Book Excellence/International Book Award Finalist.
