Author, Wiley Cash, and Librarian, Eva Silverstone, from the Spokane Public Library visited with Verne this morning, to discuss the Spokane Is Reading book for 2017, a land more kind than home.

Spokane Is Reading began in 2001, as a way for the community to enjoy a common conversation, about a book. The books selected are accessible and available in a variety of formats, appealing to a wide variety of readers, and the author must be available to come to Spokane to discuss the book with local readers. 

Gonzaga University's Theatre and Dance department will present Jonathan Larson's early, autobiographical musical, tick, tick...BOOM! The cast, along with several crew members spoke with Verne this morning about the production, and entertained with a few excerpts from the show.

Courtney Smith is the director, Nathan Patrick Nelson plays "Jon," and is the musical director. Rachael Armstrong plays "Michelle," Jacki Bertagnolli plays "Susan," and Tessa Senger is the Female Understudy.

Telling War and the Gonzaga University Department of Art are hosting the Peace Paper Project in Spokane, October 29 through November 11.  Director Drew Matott and  Telling War director, Lisa Silvestri spoke with Verne this morning about the program, which uses the ancient tradition of hand papermaking to encourage personal expression and cultural change. The process of making paper is a direct manifestation of resilience and transformation, as it requires breaking something down in order to produce something new and beautiful.
