Searching For Spenser

Parenting can be a struggle; especially parenting a child with Sotos syndrome. In her heartrending memoir, Kramar skillfully describes championing her disabled child through his short life. Written in starkly honest prose, Searching for Spenser examines the experience of loving and losing a child. After she has attained success in her career, Margaret eagerly anticipates motherhood. When she gives birth to her second child Spenser, who suffers from developmental delays because of Sotos syndrome, she is devastated because her life has centered on achievement. Although Spenser overcomes the gloomy medical prognosis cast at his birth, her husband, an attorney, cannot reconcile his disappointment and begins drifting away from the family. One day she comes home to a house of missing furniture and emptied bank accounts. After the divorce, Margaret struggles as a single mother. She barely scrapes by, and is lonely and exhausted from working full-time and maintaining a household by herself with two small boys. She meets a promising man at a dance and is swept up into a passionate romance with him, but the new man is reluctant to marry her because he does not want to commit to her children. As his most ardent cheerleader, Margaret encourages Spenser to transcend the arbitrary limits of his disability. Spenser flourishes, emerging as a happy child who loves to act, dance, and draw. One spring day, while the other children are playing, Spenser clings to his mother at the school carnival because he is tired. Margaret takes him to the hospital on a Sunday night, and in a startling turn of events, he dies the following Monday afternoon. After his death, Margaret questions whether she ever really knew her child. She searches for him in the memories of former teachers, relatives and friends, embarking on a journey that takes her beyond the grave, even to a psychic in Lily Dale, while she finds support and solace in the monthly meetings of The Compassionate Friends. Written in starkly honest prose, Searching for Spenser chronicles the costs and joys of loving a child with Sotos syndrome. Margaret Kramar has taught English at The University of Kansas and Washburn University after receiving her Ph.D. in 2012. ´´Star Wars,´´ a chapter from the memoir, appeared in Echoes from the Prairie in 2013, ´´The Soap Opera,´´ a chapter from Searching for Spenser, captured the first place award in the 2009 Kansas Authors Club District Contest and another chapter, ´´The Birthday Party,´´ appeared in Exceptional Parent magazine in 2008. A short story about Spenser was anthologized in Reading Lips: And Other Ways to Overcome a Disability, published by Apprentice House in 2008. Her work has also appeared in Contemporary American Women: Our Defining Passages, The Grinnell Magazine, newspapers, and other print and digital magazines.

After I lost my Dad in 2004, I started an intensive search to try and contact him; I felt that he was somehow still near, so I joined spiritualist circles and groups, learning to meditate and to communicate with the other side. In time, my contacts developed to the extent that my Guide would pass wisdom to me, with the intention that this information should be spread widely, to help people with spiritual and all other kinds of needs. The first part of my book explains my background and my journey, while the second and third parts pass on words and wisdom received from my Guide.

´Sixto Rodriguez ... Noch nie gehört? Dabei war der mexikanisch-stämmige Singer-Songwriter einst gefeiert wie Bob Dylan und Elvis Presley zusammen allerdings ausschließlich in Südafrika. Hier wurde in den 70ern sein Album Cold Fact zum Soundtrack der Antiapartheidbewegung. In Rodriguez Heimat hingegen, den USA, wusste niemand von seinem Ruhm, auch nicht er selbst. Zwei südafrikanische Fans begeben sich eines Tages auf die Suche nach ihrem Idol, um das sich viele Gerüchte ranken, vor allem um dessen vermeintlichen Selbstmord. Was sie am Ende entdecken ist weit mehr, als sie sich erhofft hatten.SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN ist die unglaubliche und märchengleiche Geschichte eines Stars, der keiner sein sollte, eines genialen Musikers, dessen Zeit noch nicht gekommen war. Regisseur Malik Bendjelloul porträtiert in seiner filmischen Reise die stille Seite des Ruhms und eine faszinierende Persönlichkeit. Immer mit dabei sind die Songs von Rodriguez, die es wert sind, endlich gehört zu werden.

Seit 1999 gibt dieses große internationale Festival (mit ca. 80 Ausstellungen und über 300 Künstlern) alle drei Jahre einen Überblick über zeitgenössische Entwicklungen künstlerischer und dokumentarischer Fotografie. Die großen Hamburger Ausstellungseinrichtungen (Kunsthalle, Museum für Kunst & Gewerbe, Deichtorhallen etc,) nehmen mit eigenen Ausstellungen an der Triennale teil. Der Untertitel des Buches ist auch die inhaltliche Klammer, der von Krzysztof Candrowicz kuratierten Veranstaltung. Die Welt im 21. Jahrhundert ist geprägt von sich ständig beschleunigenden Veränderungsprozessen, die Menschheit befindet sich aktuell in einer gewaltigen Umbruchsituation. Digitalisierung, Klimawandel, Migrationsströme, Bevölkerungsexplosion und Globalisierung verlangen nach neuen Lösungen und Denkansätzen. Unter dem Motto ´´Breaking Point. Searching for Change´´ greift die 7. Triennale der Photographie Hamburg diese Debatte auf. Welche Antworten können Künstler in die Diskussionen einbringen? Welche Aufgaben hat die Fotografie? Die in diesem Buch versammelten Arbeiten sowie die Texte der Autoren und Museumskuratoren haben sich diesen Herausforderungen angenommen und reflektieren das Thema ´´Breaking Point´´ höchst komplex, anregend und ideenreich. The book to the 2018 Triennale of Photography Hamburg. Every three years since 1999, this large international festival (with ca. 80 exhibitors and over 300 artists) presents an overview of contemporary developments in artistic and documentary photography. The large Hamburg exhibition institutions (Kunsthalle, Museum für Kunst & Gewerbe, Deichtorhallen, etc.) participate in the Triennale with their own exhibitions. The book´s subtitle is also the contextual focus of the event curated by Krzysztof Candrowicz. The world in the twenty-first century is characterized by constantly accelerating processes of change; mankind is currently undergoing an enormous phase of upheaval. Digitalization, climate change, waves of migration, population explosion, and globalization demand new solutions and ways of thinking. Under the motto ´´Breaking Point: Searching for Change,´´ the seventh Triennale of Photography Hamburg takes up this debate. What answers can artists contribute to the discussion? What are the tasks of photography? The works collected in this book as well as the texts by the authors and museum curators have taken up these challenges and reflect on the subject of the ´´breaking point´´ in a manner that is highly complex, imaginative, and inspiring.
