    For the past several years, on a farm north of San Francisco, the celebrated writer Alice Walker has diligently cared for a flock of chickens. Over time, her blossoming relationship with “her girls” became a source of inspiration, strength, and spiritual discovery, and helped Walker connect more profoundly with her own past as a girl in rural Georgia. Walker has recorded this journey in The Chicken Chronicles, an extraordinary document of personal discovery, political commitment, and the joys of relating to animals.

    Once you have begun your own practice of mindfulness and have branched out into mindful parenting, advocates believe that you should teach it to your children. It can start with something as easy as teaching them to breathe deeply when they're upset. This helps them to learn how to control their emotions. Another important part of teaching mindfulness to your children is to teach them gratitude. You can do this by modeling grateful behavior for them and by teaching them to be grateful for what they have.

    Fjorten moderne historier af forfatteren til "Farven lilla" og "Meridian". De handler om kærlighed, lyst og berømmelse; faren ved pornografi, abort og voldtægt; spændingen ved nye elskere og glæden ved at genfinde gamle venner på tværs af forskelle på hudfarve og køn. Det er en samling provokerende og humoristiske portrætter af kvinder, der modigt gør krav på deres tilkæmpede rettigheder, og som i deres styrke og ukuelighed ikke er til at holde nede.

    "Farven lilla" er Alice Walkers mesterværk, som hun vandt en Pulitzer Prize og National Book Award for i 1982. Romanen foregår i 1930'ernes Georgia, USA, hvor afroamerikanske kvinders rettigheder var nærmest ikkeeksisterende, og de forventedes at finde sig i hvad som helst. Alice Walker fortæller om dem, der lod sig kue, og dem, der tog kampen op for at få et bedre liv.
