Valdaniel Martins hosts ENKYKLIOS on March 15 at Cazenovia College's Catherine Cummings Theatre. ENKYKLIOS (en-KEE-klee-ohs) is described as "a variety show of some educational value." Martins says the literature and music series captures the spirit of the great old radio variety shows. Each month's show will feature a classical piece performed by Katie Martins with various musical colleagues, a segment titled First Ladies of Literature highlighting debut novels by female authors with readings and interviews, and a set of new music by an up-and-coming folk/rock group. Martins will MC the monthly show.
What is more fun than reading and drawing? At the Sketchy Book Club you can combine the two! We'll have a few special appearances planned: Author Rachel Lyon will read from her book: SELF-PORTRAIT WITH BOY. Musician Elizabeth Hunter will perform a song adaptation of a work of poetry. Writer and Artist Vivien Lee will read a story about her grandfather's life in North Korea, published in "Far-Near" magazine. At the end of event we will have an optional "show and tell", and leave with sketches, book recommendations, and lots of inspiration! This is not an instructed drawing class. All levels of drawing are welcome! The event is free and open to the public, and will take place in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room.
