    She was not some hapless, unwitting seamstress who one day got tired on a Jim Crow bus but a fierce, tireless civil rights tactician and organizer many years before her storied arrest and for decades afterward. This biography explodes the myths and illuminates her life and work.
    I thought I read this too, but it's also a documentary, so maybe I only saw the doc. Sans you're killing the reading game. I used to read a ton of books. The internet has zapped a lot of my attention span. You've inspired me to get back into reading an actual book. Give my eyes a rest from the laptop screen.

    You must be thinking of Frank Lloyd Wright's groundskeeper. Alden Dow studied under Frank Lloyd Wright. Different architects.

    Kleenex! The Edgar Sawtelle story runs parallel to Hamlet.
