PC Smith – The Shingle Weaver’s Picnic, Life During World War II, and Making Stained Glass – 380

By Steven Miletto

Teaching Learning Leading K12 provides resources for classroom teachers and school-based administrators.

PC Smith talks about her novel The Shingle Weaver’s Picnic, life during World War II, and making stained glass. This is episode 380 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast

P.C. Smith was a well-known stained glass maker in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, for over 15 years, creating custom pieces for celebrities and clients all around the world. Upon retirement, she took up her second love, writing, and has published poetry and short stories before writing this, her first novel. She is a mother of two, a grandmother of four, and a great-grandmother of seven. She lives on the Monterey Peninsula, California and in Darby, Montana, with her loving husband and two dogs.

The Shingle Weaver’s Picnic is a poignant and timeless story of a close-knit family touched by tragedy in the darkest days of the Second World War, and a young girl who must cope with the unthinkable when a child is murdered during her summer visit to her grandparents’ house.

 Smith’s wonderfully crafted story transports us to a long-gone era and takes us intimately inside of a shocking story.

 How do people react to the horrible news? What secrets come to light? Can a child’s innocence still exist amidst a violent world?

 The Shingle Weaver’s Picnic not only entertains, but it touches the hearts of readers and explores a moving side of the human spirit.

 “Through the power of this story, readers will no doubt find themselves changed,” suggests Smith. “They will enter a time and place that on one hand seems long gone, and on the other, seems ever present.”
