Fourteen faculty and writers from the Seven Doctors Project will read from their works during a fundraiser Tuesday at Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St.
They will present poetry, stories and essays created during the most recent session of 7DP, a creative writing workshop designed for physicians and health care workers, although other members of the community participate as well.
The program will begin at 7 p.m. All donations will support the 7DP writing program, which is a part of the nonprofit Nebraska Writers Collective.
Scheduled to read are Jon Garrigan, Liz Kay, Sean Duffy, Samantha Clayton, Matthew Smith, Steve Langan, John Ohnoutka, Suzanne Kehm, Pam Jespersen, Natasha Kessler, Maureen Tobin, Tom Herter, Evelyn Katz and Lydia Kang, who also will sign copies of her newly released young adult novel, “Control.”
Book is closed on Wednesday Words readings
The Nebraska Art Council’s writers’ reading series “Wednesday Words” apparently has run its course.
The council has announced that the December program was its last. The series, which began in 2008, most recently was held at the Kaneko-UNO Library.
‘Hatemail’ a National Jewish Book Awards finalist
“Hatemail: Anti-Semitism on Picture Postcards” by Salo Aizenberg, a book published by the University of Nebraska Press, was a finalist in the National Jewish Book Awards in the visual arts category.
The book features more than 250 examples of anti-Semite-themed postcards from throughout the world, mostly from the pre-Holocaust era.
A panel of three judges selected the book as one of the finalists. The awards presentation will be March 5 in New York City.
