Teacher and Author
When I was looking through the book reading schedule from last week's Book Review section, I came across the name of someone I know. Jane Juska is the author of Unaccompanied Women: Late Adventures in Love, Sex, and Real Estate. If that's the same Jane Juska I know, she was my teacher in the short fiction writing class in San Quentin. Juska is a unique name, so not that many people have that last name. I recall Jane broke down the meaning of her last name for the students. Somehow, I forgot the meaning and origin of the name Juska. After all, it's been about 5 years since I was in her class.
I wish I was able to attend Jane Juska's book reading.
