Guthema Roba & Linda Back McKay Reading
Moon Palace Books, Saturday, July 19 at 2pm
Moon Palace Books is excited to welcome Guthema Roba and Linda Back McKay to read at our store at 2pm on Saturday, July 19th.

Guthema Roba immigrated to the US in 2001 from Ethiopia and started working for the Hennepin County library. Over the last ten years, his writing has shifted intensely from outside towards the heart. Disguised as daybreak, poems knock on his chest every day. “My task is to get up and open the door. It is that easy and effortless,” he says. “The world is already starving for love and light and poetry like this,” he adds. He no longer identifies himself as a poet or a writer of any kind. “I am just a space through which the milk of poetry moves.” He lives in Minneapolis with his wife and daughter.

Linda Back McKay is a wife, mother, grandmother, author, poet, teaching artist, citizen, traveler, floor scrubber, motorcycle enthusiast, old soul and nature lover. (She can tap dance, too.)

Murder and Mayhem with Kate Racculia
The Loft Literary Center, Wednesday, July 23 at 7pm
About Bellweather Rhapsody: Fifteen years ago, a murder/suicide in room 712 rocked the grand old Bellweather Hotel and the young bridesmaid who witnessed it. Now hundreds of high school musicians, including quiet bassoonist Rabbit Hatmaker and his brassy diva twin, Alice, have gathered in its cavernous, crumbling halls for the annual Statewide festival; the grown-up bridesmaid has returned to face her demons; and a snowstorm is forecast that will trap everyone on the grounds. Then one of the orchestra’s stars disappears—from room 712. Is it a prank, or has murder struck the Bellweather once again?

The search for answers entwines a hilariously eccentric cast of characters—conductors and caretakers, failures and stars, teenagers on the verge and adults trapped in memories. For everyone has come to the Bellweather with a secret, and everyone is haunted.

Full of knowing nods to the shivery pleasures of suspense and the transporting power of music, this is a wholly winning new novel from a writer lauded as “charming” (Los Angeles Times), “witty” (O, The Oprah Magazine), and “whimsical” (People).

Kate Racculia is a writer and researcher living in Boston, Massachusetts. Her first novel, This Must Be the Place, was published by Henry Holt & Company in 2010. Her second, Bellweather Rhapsody, was just published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in May 2014. Kate studied illustration, design, Jane Austen, and Canada at the University of Buffalo. She has her MFA from Emerson College, and teaches novel and genre-fiction workshops at Grub Street, Boston’s nonprofit creative writing community. She has been a bookseller, a planetarium operator, a coffee jerk, a designer, and a proposal writer. She posts many pictures of her cat on the Internet, is a total sucker for a saxophone solo, and has every intention of growing up to be Jessica Fletcher. (The_Loft_Library)

WordSong with Florestan Recital Project
The Loft Literary Center, Saturday, August 2 at 7pm
Join Co-founder and Artistic Director of WordSong Boston Howard Frazin along with the Florestan Recital Project (Alison d’Amato, piano & Aaron Engebreth, baritone) as they present the inaugural WordSong Twin Cities event as part of the Source Song Festival. An interactive song program, Alison and Aaron will present 5 songs by 5 composers on Langston Hughes’ “Harlem.” Complete with conversation between performers, composers, and audience, you won’t want to miss this engaging event!

WordSong believes that contemporary American society has lost the connection to artistic experience as an effective means of personal and social reflection. Composers today have, in large part, failed to engage listeners in an appealing and thought-provoking way; they have traveled down wonderful yet often very foreign roads of musical expression and simply expected audiences to follow without question. As a result, new music is often simply played at the audience, when it needs to be presented with the audience as an active participant. WordSong will help begin to bring about this change.

WordSong is a new concert format in which one text is presented in multiple, newly composed settings and is the focus of directed conversation among composers, performers, and audiences. WordSong’s goal is to reconnect musicians and listeners through shared, active artistic experiences. It is a public conversation about intuitive musical understanding.

Composer Howard Frazin is the Co-founder and Artistic Director of WordSong. He teaches composition at the New England Conservatory of Music where he is also the director of the CPR Composer- Performer-Repertory Ensemble. He recently served as the Boston Classical Orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence at the Boston Arts Academy. His music has been performed throughout the U.S. and abroad, including festivals at Tanglewood, Aspen, Banff, Rockport, Monadnock, Bowdoin, and Yellow Barn. Recent commissions include those from Triple Helix, A Far Cry, the Claremont Trio, the Boston Classical Orchestra, the Fromm Foundation, World-wide Concurrent Premieres, the PALS Children’s Chorus, and Andover Chamber Players. The Claremont Trio’s premiere of Mr. Frazin’s piano trio on Dallas Chamber Music’s concert series was praised by the Dallas Morning News as “... a genuinely touching triptych, which wastes not a note,” and the performance made Scott Cantrell’s Top 10 Performances list for 2010. Mr. Frazin’s work is published by Peters Editions.

Pianist Alison d'Amato is a dynamic and versatile musician, committed to performing and teaching in the full spectrum of solo and chamber music genres. A member of several pioneering organizations, she is Artistic Co-Director of Florestan Recital Project and Founding Faculty Artist of the Vancouver International Song Institute (www.songinstitute.ca). In 2011, she joined the faculty at Eastman School of Music as Assistant Professor of Vocal Coaching. Alison enjoys a variety of interdisciplinary projects that energize the relationships and communication inherent in music. She is a Program Director of Art Song Lab (www.artsonglab.com), an intensive workshop that presents new works in collaboration with composers, poets, and performers. In addition to traditional masterclasses in collaborative repertoire, Alison has shared classes with musicologists, English professors, singers, and instrumentalist partners. She has performed at venues across North America, including Boston’s Jordan and Symphony Halls and New York’s Weill Recital Hall. www.alisondamato.com.

Acclaimed for his “exemplary diction and rich baritone voice,” baritone Aaron Engebreth enjoys an active solo career in opera, oratorio and recital, and devotes considerable time to the performance of new music. Featured in performances from Sapporo Japan's Kitara Hall and Boston's Symphony Hall to Le Theatre de la Ville in Paris, Washington's Kennedy Center and the AmBul festival of Sofia, Bulgaria, he has been a guest of the Tanglewood, Ravinia, and Monadnock Music Festivals, as well as many symphony orchestas, among them Portland, San Diego, Virginia and Charlotte. As a recording artist, he is featured on two operatic recordings with the Boston Early Music Festival and Radio Bremen, each nominated for Grammy Awards for Best Operatic Recording. His 2013/14 season's performances include concerts with Newport Chamber Festival, Radius Ensemble, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, his debut at Carnegie Hall, and guest vocal recitals at Minneapolis' Antonello Hall and the University of Wisconsin.

Janet Burroway Reading
The Loft Literary Center, Friday, August 15 at 7pm
Losing Tim is a memoir by a mother about a soldier son who killed himself. It’s not an easy read. But it’s a beautiful one. Burroway, a National Book Award nominee, welcomes readers to grieve along with her, while also providing a lens into how soldiers, and military contractors, like her son, are changed by their combat experiences. Jonathan Shay, author of Achilles in Vietnam: Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character, a highly acclaimed volume on PTSD, and a 2007 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, comments in the foreword, ”To me, the pain recalls Homer’s Iliad, in which, as James Tatum puts it in The Mourner’s Song, ‘the beauty of the poetry is in the killing.”’

Janet Burroway is the author of eight novels, plays, poetry, essays, texts for dance, and children’s books. She was nominated for the National Book Award in 1977 for her novel Raw Silk. Her Writing Fiction: A Guide to Narrative Craft is the most widely used creative writing text in America, and her multigenre Imaginative Writing is out in a third edition. Her most recent novel is Bridge of Sand (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2009), and her play Medea with Child was produced in 2010 by Sideshow Theatre Company in Chicago. She is at work on a musical adaptation of Barry Unsworth’s novel Morality Play with composer Matthew M. Kiedrowski. She is the Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor Emerita at Florida State University. Her most recent book is Losing Tim, a memoir about her son, a private contractor in the Iraq War. (The_Loft_Library)
