    Discuss 99 Nights in Logar by Jamil Jan Kochai.

    Location update: Instead of Zoom, this meeting will be in-person at an outdoor location in close proximity to the Downtown Bend Library. Contact Rya Fennewald for location details.

    "A coming-of-age story about one boy's journey across contemporary Afghanistan to find and bring home the family dog, blending the grit and immediacy of voice-driven fiction like We Need New Names with the mythmaking of One Thousand and One Nights. Twelve-year-old Marwand's memories from his previous visit to Afghanistan six years ago center on his contentious relationship with Budabash, the terrifying but beloved dog who guards his extended family's compound in Logar. Eager to find an ally in this place that's meant to be "home," Marwand approaches Budabash the way he would any dog on his American suburban block--and the results are disastrous: Marwand loses a finger and Budabash escapes. The resulting search for the family dog is an expertly told adventure, a ninety-nine-night quest that sends Marwand and his cousins across the landscape of Logar. Moving between celebrations and tragedies, deeply humorous and surprisingly tender, 99 Nights in Logar is a vibrant exploration of the power of stories--the ones we tell each other, and the ones we find ourselves in"-- Provided by publisher.

    This program will be available Tuesdays via YouTube at https://bit.ly/2Yaurca

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Listen to the warm Americana of Corinne Sharlet.

    With bone-deep lyrics and a magnetic, haunting voice, Portland based singer/songwriter, Corinne Sharlet, crafts a warm Americana sound. Emotive and alluring, Corinne’s music captures the imagination like the high deserts of Central Oregon where she was raised. Drawing comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Corinne writes unusual melodies and chord progressions that give her version of folk music new life. Corinne’s set features songs from her forthcoming debut album, A Lovely Future, set to be released at the end of September.

    Singer/songwriter, Corinne Sharlet grew up in Bend, performing in local community theater and writing songs as she wandered around the High Desert. Corinne’s music is ethereal yet grounded in richness, capturing the sound of the landscape of Central Oregon. Corinne’s songwriting is introspective and often delves into the depths of the human psyche. Based on her lyrical themes, it comes as no surprise that Corinne also works as a psychotherapist, trained in pioneering voice work called Voice Movement Therapy. Inspired by voice teacher, Alfred Wolfsohn’s discoveries about how to use singing to help people heal from PTSD after WWI, Voice Movement therapy teaches people how to explore the depths of their own voice to heal from trauma and other mental health struggles.

    Hear how a simple art cataloging project became one of the biggest art finds in recent history.

    Mallory Mortillaro serves as the Curator of Collections for the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, NJ. While she was cataloging the artwork housed inside of the Hartley Dodge Memorial she uncovered a masterpiece that had been lost to the art world since the 1930’s. After a year of research the piece was authenticated as an official work by Auguste Rodin. Mallory will share the story of how a simple art cataloging project evolved into a search for a mysterious piece’s provenance, and became one of the biggest art finds in recent history.

    Mallory Mortillaro serves as the Curator of Collections for the Hartley Dodge Foundation. In this position she worked to authenticate an original Rodin sculpture, lost to the art world since the 1930’s. Mallory holds a BA and MAT, both from Drew University.

    This is a live, interactive meeting. Click here https://zoom.us/j/95803183415?pwd=SkgzVmhjVjR4eFFma2MwY2J6akVUUT09 to join the meeting or click "Join Meeting" above.

    This fun, eclectic workshop invites writers to try their hand at "Hermit Crab Essays."

    Hermit Crab essays are those that borrow their forms from other kinds of communication (think personal ads, medical charts, syllabi, album liner notes). While this has become a popular form in creative nonfiction, the technique has applications for poetry and fiction as well.

    This workshop will feature some examples of Hermit Crab writing, provide some prompts to promote it, and will offer ideas for incorporating it into fiction, nonfiction, and poetry writing projects. Come willing to be wildly creative and to throw your normal sense of convention to the wind and to engage in a fun and challenging writing style.

    Kristin Dorsey is a Professor in the Humanities Department at Central Oregon Community College. She’s a generalist, which means that she teaches a variety of academic and creative writing classes, along with literature classes from Early American literature to Children’s literature. She used to read and write a lot. And then she had twins. And now she draws a lot of circles and reads a lot of Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? Teaching creative writing workshops in the community keeps her excited about her own writing and that of others.

    The mission of Central Oregon Writers Guild is to provide Central Oregon area writers a forum for mutual support and education through meetings, annual events and workshops. Their goal is to advance growth and success for individual writers of all genres and at all skill levels. Founded in 2002, the Guild is a non-profit organization, where volunteers coordinate the group's activities. *zm*
