Clayton High School Student Reading, Nov 5

11/05/2014 6:00 pm
 
 
Come hear the up-and-coming writers of Clayton High School at a student reading of individual work, both poetry and prose! 
at Subterranean Books 
 

The evening is sponsored by The Works, a literary/arts magazine produced at Clayton High School. In addition to putting out the physical magazine once a year, The Works' goal is to promote and encourage creative writing among the school's community.
 
The reading is a chance for students to hear the writing that their classmates love to create but that so often goes unnoticed for lack of opportunities to share within the normal school day.
 
 
The event has been organized by Gwyneth Henke, a senior and the editor-in-chief of the student newspaper, The Globe, as well as an editor and designer for The Works.

John Hendrix Signing for "Shooting at the Stars: The Christmas Truce of 1914", Nov 13

Reading and Signing with
John Hendrix for SHOOTING AT THE STARS
 Thursday, Nov 13, 5pm at Subterranean Books
 


Subterranean favorite John Hendrix returns with his new book celebrating the Christmas truce of 1914.
 

 

 


Shooting at the Stars is the moving story of a young British soldier on the front lines during World War I who experiences an unforgettable Christmas Eve. In a letter home to his mother, he describes how, despite fierce fighting earlier from both sides, Allied and German soldiers ceased firing and came together on the battlefield to celebrate the holiday. They sang carols, exchanged gifts, and even lit Christmas trees. But as the holiday came to a close, they returned to their separate trenches to await orders for the war to begin again.

 

John Hendrix wonderfully brings this story to life, interweaving fact and fiction along with his detailed illustrations and hand-lettered text. His story celebrates the humanity and kindness that can persist even during the darkest periods of our history. Back matter includes a glossary, additional information about World War I and the Christmas Truce and its aftermath, and an archival photograph taken during the Truce. 

 

John Hendrix's illustrations have appeared in numerous publications including The New Yorker, The New York Times, Sports Illustrated and Entertainment Weekly, among many others, as well as a number of books.  He is an instructor at Washington University and lives in St. Louis.

 

Copies of his books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. If you would like a signed copy but are unable to attend the event just let us know.
