BK Loren, author of Theft

Prize-winning fiction and nonfiction writer BK Loren will speak about Theft, her debut novel. The novel is an exploration into how and why we need family, (however it is defined), and how beauty is dependent upon loss. Loren will speak about why focusing on publishing can kill a story, and the crossovers and differences between creative nonfiction and fiction.

Melissa Cooke, Undertow Weightless

Melissa Cooke creates large scale drawings made by dusting thin layers of graphite onto paper with a dry brush. The softness of the graphite provides a smooth surface that can be augmented by erasing in details and textures. No pencils are used in the work, allowing the surface to glow without the shine of heavy pencil marks. Illusion dissolves into brush work and the honesty of the material. Cooke traverses a path, back and forth, first to work intimately with the surface and then to see the piece from a distance. This dance with her drawing has become a ritual, and ultimately, a release.

Cynthia Bishop

“Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. Tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.” That anonymous quote captures an insight that makes sense to Cynthia Bishop, a storyteller who grew up in Greece, Italy and Egypt. As a young person, she collected folk tales from around the world, and as a founding member of Salt City Storytellers, Bishop learned to perform traditional as well as personal tales. She will perform some of those tales for us, and will talk about her work as a storyteller and as a narrator of audio books for youth.
