Gangi's first novel, written at age 60, is a sexy, satisfying, whirlwind tale of a lover scorned, and of mothers, daughters, sisters, cancer, death, social media ... all with a killer soundtrack. Stephanie is fierce, funny, beautifully present, and her writing is thrilling and deep. 

Episode 12: Lifelong Activism, Thinking Antrhopologically, and Actual Facetime with Dr. Alison Hall

Dr. Alison Hall received her Ph.D. in Anthropology, worked as a lecturer teaching and had a career as a Museum Director at The Arkansas Museum of Science and History, The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium, and The Children’s Museum of Arkansas. 

Upon retirement from museum work, Dr. Hall taught at the University of Central Arkansas, and won two university research grants. In 2015 she retired from teaching in order to help her daughter pursue a demanding career in medicine, and now divides her time between Brooklyn (where she cares for three grandsons aged 4, 7, and 10 years old) and Arkansas.

She has served on boards of Women’s Action for New Directions, Heifer International, Arkansas Sustainability Network, and the Arkansas chapter of the A.C.L.U. She is still actively engaged in what has become a lifelong pursuit of political and community activism. Between all that, she is finishing up her book about Italian collective farming that she began researching in the 1970s. Amazing.
