"Not Yet" Warmly Received

A tremendously appreciative audience viewed the staged reading of Diane Germaine's "Not Yet" on  September 16th  at WWf(a)C. Comments following the performance included "extremely moving," "very relatable" and "recognizable." Diane Germaine and Suz Fleming-Smith drew the audience in with their realistic portrayals of the frustrations of Sima, the mother and Tracy, the daughter, during the last years of Sima's life.

Many thanks to Diane Germaine for designating the ticket proceeds for the benefit of WWf(a)C.

Spotlight on Phebe Beiser


In January 2006 I retired as a librarian just in time to immerse myself in the leadership training at WWf(a)C. I thought I was on vacation although the experience did include work, along with sisterhood. Eager to facilitate a class of my own, I filled in for summer classes (when the regular teachers took a break) and was fortunate to be on a team with WWf(a)C Founder Mary Pierce Brosmer for the coed class "Living and Leading Like a Poet." When Diane Debevec became Executive Director, she approached new leadership graduates, asking where we saw ourselves in the organization. I told her "I want a class!"  Read more
