Mar 01,  · 'The best book Eudora Welty has ever written.' said the New York Times. Eudora Welty's THE OPTIMIST'S DAUGHTER is a very well written and interesting novel with a different setting and unusual characters, a well-developed plot, and connections for all readers/5. udora Welty's novel, "The Optimist's Daughter," which first appeared in The New Yorker of March 15, , is a miracle of compression, the kind of book, small in scope but profound in its implications, that rewards a lifetime of work.

What an amazing book with a wonderful message of optimism and hope. Greg has worked so hard to get this project off the ground and has produced an amazing childrens book LOVED already by his 2 boys and i am sure will be loved by many children to be gifted this gem! “Joshua Mehigan’s The Optimist, though a first book, is already the work of a master coming into his unique own. Mehigan writes with a deep and alarming calmness that derives directly from his mastery, and his poems shine with luminous strangeness. The Optimist possesses the mysterious vision and power of great art.” Andrew Hudgins.

Hope the Optimist Bear was created by the Junior Optimist Organization. It is a bear we deliver to local hospitals with a story book written about her. We do a school wide competition for a story about Hope. This story is to help the children in the hospital feel better and leaves them with a snuggly friend for the rest of their stay and esteindesign.xyz: Dallas Rennie. This book provides a well constructed, reasonable walk through time to give the reader some true perspective about our current condition relative to all those that have come before us. At a time when media coverage is based around telling us what's wrong with us, our planet and our country, this book provides a practical antidote.
