Anne writing

Anne Jakowenko, the blog author, has admired the Bee Gees for decades while raising her sons and teaching college students Speech Communication and English skills at her alma mater, Syracuse University, where she received her Master’s degree. She has also taught for SUNY Oswego and Barry University.  Anne has taught for the State College of Florida and Ringling College of Art and Design while she continued to collect stories for her book, “My Life with the Boys”. The book is both fiction and non-ficton, the fictional tale of one girl’s travels through life with the brothers, intertwined with the non-fictional tale of Maurice, Robin and Barry’s real lives and the stories that are depicted on this blog.
She considers every story that she has heard a gem and is thrilled to honor Barry, Robin and Maurice by sharing the power of their music through the words of the fans who love them. She is currently teaching at Syracuse University in the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies.

    Anne, you’re going to think I’m crazy but , I just saw the movie American Hustle and in one of the scenes, How do you mend a broken heart, started playing and I felt such emotion and a sense of closeness and connection to the BeeGees like never before. Some may say that was silly for me to think and feel this way but ,it was real. It made me think of Mo& Robin standing at the mike with Barry singing to me. I can’t even tell you what the scene was about .I was too surprised and involved in my own little world with “The Boys”. Gotta love it!

    Hello, I’m so glad I found this and signed on it it. I’m not on Twitter, but your e-mails are one of the few I look forward to reading. Are you still in FL? I’m in the Tampa Bay area. We have a lot of big name entertainers at various venues too, but I guess you know who would be great to see here.
    Thanks for everything, Swenette.

    my wife has been a diehard fan of the bee gees, and admires Barry Gibb greatly for 50 plus years. ever since she could toddle to a record player she has loved their work. because of her, a metalhead like me is now also a fan of his., and cheerfully share her collection of albums, cds etc. she asks for nothing in life and gives so much that it would be wonderful if she could ‘get a message’ to him simply to say thank you. a fanmail site lists his legal agency in hallendale beach florida as a contact for mail. we sent him a greeting card and letter via the law firm because writing him at his house just seems so intrusive. we do not wish to intrude or disturb the privacy of his home. do you know if Mr. Gibb still takes fan mail from Addicott & Addicott? have you ever posted a note to him at his home?
