Presentation & Booksigning with Jane Albritton: Peace Corps at 50
| Colfax Avenue: In the spirit of the Peace Corps, which JFK created with his first executive order as president, the editors of Peace Corps at 50
introduce this anniversary story project with the same optimism and
certainty that it is a good idea. A series of four anthologies
celebrating and recording the Peace Corps’
accomplishments and contributions to the world through its first half
century of life. The idea for this massive compendium came to Jane
Albritton in 2007, four volumes to cover the
regions of the world where volunteers have served — Africa, The
Americas, The Heart of Eurasia, and Asia and the Pacific — written by
the volunteers themselves for the 50thanniversary of the Peace Corps. |
After returning to Dallas from the Peace Corps (India 45, 1967-69), Jane Albritton earned a master’s degree in English, taught freshman composition at Southern Methodist University, and served as the writing specialist for the SMU School of Law. In 1980, she created Tiger Enterprises, a company for writing, editing, and instruction. She currently teaches online courses for Colorado State University in business writing and magazine writing. Her stories have appeared in Edible Front Range, Southwest Art, and other periodicals. Works in progress include a book on the history of presidential pardons.
