Re-Writing the American West: Karin Anderson, Danielle Dubrasky, and Heather Holland

Join writers Karin Anderson, Danielle Beazer Dubrasky, and Heather Holland in a panel discussion about writing and exploring voices that often go unheard in the cowboy-trodden American West. How do you challenge dominant narratives? How do you research for writing based in place? How do you encourage your students to widen their view of home? Moderated by Lauren Matthews, this discussion and reading will be in the Rasmussen Room of the Greenwood Student Center at Snow College on Wednesday, October 30 at 7:00 p.m. It is free and open to the public. A gardener, writer, mother, wanderer, and heretic, Karin Anderson is a Professor of English at Utah Valley University where she focuses on creative writing, lit theory, wilderness and environmental writing, LGBTQ lit, contemporary narrative genres, and honor legacies. She is the author of the novel Before Us Like a Land of Dreams, and her work has appeared in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Quarter After Eight, Western Humanities Review, Sunstone, Saranac Review, American Literary Review, and Fiddleblack. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and holds degrees from Utah State University, Brigham Young University, and the University of Utah. She hails from the Great Basin. Danielle Beazer Dubrasky’s poetry has been published in Terrain.org, Pilgrimage, Sugar House Review, Salt Front, Cave Wall, Contrary Magazine, and Quill&Parchment. She is the author of the chapbook Ruin and Light selected by Anabiosis Press and a limited edition art book Invisible Shores published through Red Butte Press. She is an associate professor of English and Creative Writing at Southern Utah University where she directs an Ecopoetry and Place writing conference. Danielle has been a fellow at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, a two-time recipient of the Utah Arts Council first place award in poetry, and is currently the director of the Grace A. Tanner Center for Human Values at Southern Utah University. She directs The Art of Literature program, a partnership between Southern Utah University and the Utah Humanities Council that brings writers to the southern Utah community and to the classroom. She also developed and directs a biannual Creative Writing/Teaching Conference for high school teachers at SUU. Danielle grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, but has lived the last 20 years in southern Utah. Heather Holland is an instructor of English at Snow College and lives in Ephraim, Utah.

The Legendary Pink Dots - 40th Anniversary Tour with Orbit Service

The Legendary Pink Dots are a Netherlands-based band formed in August 1980 in the UK who, although distinctly underground, have been musically influential over the years. The band name was derived from pink dots of nail varnish on the piano in their squat, where founding members Edward and April lived. The band has as its focal point vocalist Edward Ka-Spel, who is, along with Phil “The Silverman” Knight, one of the original remaining members of the band. In the mid eighties the band resettled in the Netherlands, where they still reside today. Apart from Edward and Phil, the line-up has gone through many changes. Members such as Ryan Moore, a Canadian bass player, who joined in 1991 after the recordings of the Last Man to Fly with the Tear Garden (he joined as a session musician), went on to form their own labels and musical projects. See Twilight Circus and M Records. Their music is nothing if not original and it is difficult to categorise, but comparisons may be drawn with bands like Pink Floyd and Can.

Free Film & Food - "Birth of the Living Dead"

Viewer discretion is advised. Some content in this video may be objectionable. This video contains violent images. Some language in this video may be offensive. This video contains nudity. In 1968, a young college dropout named George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low-budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day. Birth of the Living Dead shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers, policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad men, housewives, and a roller rink owner to shoot a revolutionary guerrilla-style film that went on to become a cinematic landmark, offering a profound insight into how our society worked in a singular time in American history. Free refreshments will be provided. Costumes encouraged for a costume contest. No masks, no weapons, or other props that might be deemed dangerous. https://www.facebook.com/events/500384713873071/
