I had a delightful evening with the Arlington Crossing Book Club in Upper Arlington, Ohio on 9-16. I did a presentation and made good on my promise to bring Rosie. Since Rosie was a cow, that precipitated some snickers. I brought a large cake iced with a cow face. With a little champagne, it was delicious! Margy, one of the members, brought a basket of Wisconsin products. Her husband was a Wisconsin boy and loved the book.
I AM THRILLED. My book Remembering Rosie: Memories of a Wisconsin Farm Girl, was chosen as one of the NABE Pinnacle Book Achievement Award Winners for Summer 2021.

Remembering Rosie: Memories of a Wisconsin Farm Girl
Nadine A Block
Federal corporal punishment ban bills have been introduced to extend fundamental rights of children not to be physically harmed in school discipline. I wrote a book about how a small group of advocates got paddling banned in Ohio in 2009. It made Ohio the 30th state to end this barbaric practice. The book gives the construct and strategies for ending its use.
See this virtual event on the Congressional Briefing for Federal Corporal Punishment Bans just introduced.
