Nathaniel Farrell Reading & Signing for NEWCOMER, Thurs 3/19

03/19/2015 6:00 pm
 
Please join us for a reading and signing with Nathaniel Farrell. Part historical fiction and part nature poem, Newcomer takes place in a wartime landscape estranged by nostalgia and American story-telling. A soldier passes through a landscape that is mutable, both familiar and foreign, while memories of home come in waves, receding and reappearing in images of crisp grass and in the sounds of wind. Military epic mixes with pastoral romance, and neither are resolved. Instead, Newcomer's investigation of entropic minutia suggests a very contemporary (perhaps post-traumatic) confusion of temporality, and by this turns our thoughts toward a phenomenology of historical imagination.

Nathaniel Farrell was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania. He holds a doctorate in English Literature from Columbia University in New York. Newcomer (UDP, 2014), his first book, is a long poem set in an undefined American-soil campaign. He has published poems in 6x6, Greetings Magazine, The Recluse, and The Brooklyn Rail. He lives in St. Louis where he teaches writing and hosts Cure for Pain on 88-1 KDHX.

Carla Power Discussion & Signing for IF THE OCEANS WERE INK, Mon 3/30

Join the Friends of the Library as they welcome St Louis native Carla Power.

Reading the Quran in Starbucks: A Feminist Secularist Journalist and a Traditional Muslim Scholar Search for Common Ground

Twenty years into their friendship, the American journalist Carla Power and her longtime friend Sheikh Mohammad Akram Nadwi embarked on discussions of the Quran together. Their conversations, which ranged from veiling to the Prophet Yusuf, from jihad to migration to child-rearing, opened fresh seams of cultural dialogue. Exploring where their worldviews diverged and converged over the course of a year, the two had a rare vantage on the clash of civilizations myth.

Carla Power writes for TIME and was a foreign correspondent for Newsweek. Her writing has appeared in Vogue, Glamour, The New York Times Magazine, and Foreign Policy. Her work has been recognized with an Overseas Press Club award, a Women in Media Award, and the National Women's Political Caucus's EMMA Award. She holds a graduate degree in Middle Eastern Studies from Oxford, as well as degrees from Yale and Columbia.
