Irmgarde Brown talks about her novel: Sister Jane. This is episode 492 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.
Irmgarde Brown knows a good book when she sees one. For 28 years she had stacked shelves as a librarian. She also recognizes a good theatrical story, having written, produced, and acted in a one-woman play that toured for two years. 
Now she has broken into book publishing with a character-driven, plot-twisting novel that examines how society reacts to people who make major life changes and discover their true talents later in life. It also explores whether we really believe in miracles or if social media, the government, community, and the news media would distort whatever the truth really is.
A little bit about her book Sister Jane…
All her life, Jane believes she is small-town ordinary. . . until she isn’t. Some people brand her a witch, while others believe she has a demon. Her family thinks she’s ready for the nursing home, and a down-and-out news reporter assumes she’s a fake. But nobody, including Jane, can figure out how she does it: heal the sick. All the sick. All the time. Is it a gift of God? The Church is divided. Then, everything erupts when the foreigners arrive along with members of the government and the scientists. Will Jane become a pawn or save herself?
Great read! great talk!
