21st Century Storytelling: W.A.R. Person of the Year

Anthony says hello!

My brother always asks about you, my faithful readers. Now, sir, ^ up there ^ if I may…


Bowllan’s blog (me) wants YOU to decide WHO should be the W.A.R. Person of the Year! It’s not an original idea (I know), but it is for me.

Over the past five years, I have met people from all walks of life and professions: writers, librarians, teachers, parents,  ayem ^family members, etc., the list is endless.  These are the people who may not be of celebrity status but they are ALL making a difference, in some small or grand way.

Who do you hope will continue to leave a mark, well into the future, and why? <<Those are the questions to ask yourself when you send me your submission/pick.

I will need your help, too,  as I sift through 5-years of archival material.

Do know, by the end of December, we will have a W.A.R. Person of the Year, who will receive a very special and authentic, one-of-a-kind prize.

See what you get to do when you’re a grandma blogger.

(By the way, TIME is in the thick of voting for its Person of the Year and my vote is for the Chilean miners.)


  1. Hey Amy. I want to nominate you!

  2. I second Amy’s nomination 😀
