About the Author
Barbara Beam has been a high school English teacher for fifteen years. She has taught World Lit., Introduction to Lit., and British Lit., but her favorite is American Lit. because she likes the Puritan witch hunts, the Emerson hippies, and Jay Gatsby's parties. She has taught over 1500 students and has only been threatened twice. Beam helps us all realize that we must learn to laugh at ourselves and our circumstances to survive the obstacles we each must face.
