That special project

I have a new book to read this weekend: The Great Black Hope: a true football story of miracles, faith and hope (Volume 1) by Constance Kluesener Gorman.

See, I taught with Constance Kluesener Gorman at Princeton for a half dozen years before her contract was nonrenewed and she was sent packing. In those half dozen years she treated our secretaries like crap (observed by me), set a student on fire by running a half dozen hot plates at full blast with no experiments to heat up her room (second hand but confirmed by the then-Principal), wore some outstanding denim skirts (terrifyingly observed by me), called WLW to complain that she had to take down a cut Christmas tree from her classroom (rumored), and told me flatly that she was supposed to have my job as honors/AP chemistry teacher because she was hired first.

When Connie left PHS, she told a department member that we would hear from her, that she was working on a big - but secret - project that would later bring her back into the spotlight. I don't know that today's blog topic is that big, secret project, but it'something.

See, Connie seems to have written a book, The Great Black Hope. Lucky for us the book's subject, Tony Daniels, is a former student and spouse of a current Princeton teacher, so I - and Calen - got a casual mention that Connie's new book (assumedly her first and only) is out and ready to read. 

Feel free to give it a read, folks, and enjoy the readings from Constance Gorman...
Constance Kluesener Gorman is a Christian mystic who has been favored with the gifts of prophecy, healing, miracles and private revelation from God. She is also former business owner and product development chemist, who received a calling to participate in the education sector. She is currently a private tutor, but also occasionally teaches business, chemistry and mathematic classes at local universities in Greater Cincinnati. She holds a B.A. in Chemistry from Miami University, an M.B.A. from the University of Cincinnati and a B.S. in Education from the McGregor School at Antioch University. Although Constance has been published as a writer in technical journals and other print media relating to her business career, The Great Black Hope is her first effort in writing a nonfiction novel. She plans to write and publish the remaining fifty-seven or so other stories relating to her spiritual favors and experiences.
Fifty-seven other stories are still coming?

Oh, I am so happy right now...
