A famous quote from Shakespeare’s famous play Romeo and Juliet once posed the question: “What’s in a name?” While Juliet disparaged the importance of a name, saying that a rose called by any other name would still be as sweet, Kim Sherouse Krewson knows what is in a name.
Who is Kim Sherouse Krewson? She is a former New York Times employee and the author of the Secret Namesake book series, a series of books that study the etymology of names and how they are related to each and every person’s history, vocation, and personal goals as proof of the influence of the divine on the selection of names. As pointed out by Kim, there is power in a name.
Her first novel, Secret Namesake Sampler Vol. 1, was recently accepted into the Edgar Cayce Library, one of the largest collections of spiritual literature outside of a church facility such as the Vatican.
Kim’s website features a sample story about Ron James Pastore, a historian who specializes in the study of the infamous outlaw Jesse James. While Ron’s theory about Jesse James’ death is intriguing for any historian or Wild West enthusiast, what Kim Krewson is most interested in are the ways in which Ron’s name is linked to his work and his interests.
For example, Kim notes that Pastore’s last name is very close in enunciation to “past story,” and that there is a link between Ron’s middle name, James, and that of Jesse James, which could be evidence of a divine presupposition of Ron’s interests.
Kim has studied the history and phonetic relations of the names of hundreds of people, to help her establish her theory of the interconnection between the names of people and their occupations, hobbies, passions, and lives. Her dedicated research and creative effort have paid off, as she now has her own book to share with readers around the world.
To celebrate her upcoming publication, Kim commissioned a plaque of an excerpt from her book. This excerpt, which is of Dolly Parton’s personal story and how her name is related to her career and her life, has been enlarged to fit a giant-sized two page spread plaque.
This plaque makes for a great promotional display for Kim’s new novel, one that she can share with friends, family, and even fans of her work to enjoy. This plaque will be attractive enough to proudly display in her home, and durable enough to take on the road to conventions and book signings.
With each and every In The News plaque, the documents inside are preserved against the ravages of time, the elements, and the occasional mishap. If there is a document that you would like to have preserved for posterity or turned into a trophy, even one that isn’t a news article, you can have it sealed within a plaque to protect it and make it into a proud display.
Sealing an article into a plaque prevents yellowing, cracking, tearing, and fading of the article. Plus, the wooden frame and professional arrangement and engraving create an attractive display worthy of attention. Because of the durability of such plaques, they can continue to draw positive attention for decades to come.
Kim’s plaque will be a proud reminder of her becoming an author of note for her to enjoy for the rest of her life.
In The News was happy to help Kim celebrate the launch of her novel with a plaque featuring an excerpt of her book. We wish Kim happiness and success with her literary endeavors, and hope that she continues to be an inspired and prolific writer.
