Jane's Stories loses valued member

FLAC member Jane's Stories Press Foundation mourns the passing of one of Jane's Stories most faithful members and volunteers, Gail Pflaster who passed away peacefully at her home in St. Augustine on May 13, 2012 after a long, brave battle with cancer. A teacher, organizer, writer, and friend, she helped create the Festival of Muses to celebrate Womens' History Month. In 2009 she founded the ROWITA Awards (Recognizing Outstanding Women In The Arts) to honor artistic achievements of women and recognize their contributions to the arts community. This year the Cultural Council re-named the award, The Dr. Gail Pflaster Recognizing Outstanding Women in the Arts Award. Gail's passion for writing resulted in "Furry Tales," a loving tribute to her animal companions over the years that is due for publication this week. More on Gail here
