Red Green
Red Green (How to Do Everything, Red Green's Beginner's Guide to Women, Red Green's Beginner's Guide to Women, The Green Red Green)

Red Green is the leader of Possum Lodge, Chapter 11, a northern Ontario eyesore. He is friendly, inventive, cheap and as honest as the day is long, which means he's the least honest on December 21. When he works on his handyman projects, Red is not stupid, he's impatient. So he uses duct tape to "buy time." Red Green is the star of The Red Green Show, which had first runs in Canada and the US from 1991 until 2006, making it the longest running live-action scripted comedy in the world. It continues to be enormously popular in reruns here and in the States. Red Green is the creation of Canadian comedian and writer Steve Smith. (added from Random House)… (more)

World Book Night 2014
Moon Palace Books, Wednesday, April 23 at 00am
Who is helping give out half a million free books across America on April 23rd? We are!

Moon Palace Books is proud to be one of 2,300 bookstores and libraries across America supporting World Book Night 2014.

On April 23- Shakespeare’s birthday- 25,000 volunteers from Kodiak to Key West will give away half a million free books in more than 6,000 towns and cities across America.

Moon Palace Books serves as a community base for local givers, receiving the books that they will be giving out and providing useful resources.

World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories.

Check out a list of World Book Night titles at us.worldbooknight.org or on our website here.

Wednesday, April 23: World Book Night
Wild Rumpus Books for Young Readers, Wednesday, April 23 at 00am
The deadline for giver applications has passed. If you applied to be a giver, look for an email in early February. If you missed the deadline, please join us next year!

Find out more about World Book Night here.

Wild Rumpus will host an opening reception for our givers. Pick up your books, drink some champagne, and talk books with other book lovers. More information will follow after you receive your giver acceptance letter in early February!

Each year, 30- 35 books are chosen by an independent panel of librarians and booksellers (click here to see the 2014 books). The authors of the books waive their royalties and the publishers agree to pay the costs of producing the specially-printed World Book Night U.S. editions. Bookstores and libraries sign up to be community host locations for the volunteer book givers. After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out 20 copies of a particular title in their community. World Book Night U.S. vets the applications, and the givers are chosen based on their ability to reach light and non-readers. The selected givers choose a local participating bookstore or library from which to pick up the 20 copies of their book, and World Book Night U.S. delivers the books to these host locations. Givers pick up their books in the week before World Book Night. On April 23rd, they give their books to those who don’t regularly read and/or people who don’t normally have access to printed books, for reasons of means or geography.

WHY IS WORLD BOOK NIGHT IMPORTANT? Why does World Book Night exist? Reading for pleasure improves literacy, actively engaging emerging readers in their desire to read. Reading changes lives, improves employability, social interaction, enfranchisement, and can have a positive effect on mental health and happiness. Book readers are more likely to participate in positive activities such as volunteering, attending cultural events, and even physical exercise. Or more simply put, books are fun—and they can be life-changing. With the passionate volunteer support of thousands of people across the country, World Book Night U.S. is spreading the love of reading, person to person. "Your organization I'm sure has helped so many people. Some people cannot afford books & your organization offers the less fortunate a better opportunity. I thank you for what you offer so many people. Knowledge & adventure." —Malika "Best moment: hearing these young guys walk away with their copy saying, ‘we can have our own book club." —Linda "My readers are reading their book and saying how much they are enjoying it. I have 19 women and 1 man, aged from 75 to 16. Black, white and Hispanic and they are all reading!" —Jane "Thanks for sharing the book. I began reading the first chapter and was excited to be reading again. My life is so busy with work and other community commitments that I forgot about the joy of taking time to read." —Wanda "What a great project to encourage and reward both reading AND volunteering in such a creative way." —Mary Jane “After April 23, we went back to the community center where we gave out Zeitoun and had some potluck dinner and great conversations with the recipients. Thank you, World Book Night!” —Suzie “Gave a book to a woman this morning, who took it with tears in her eyes. She told me that she rarely gets to the library and cannot afford to buy new books on her own. She graciously took the book, opened it up, smelled the pages, said ‘God bless you, my child,’ and walked away clutching her new found treasure. Makes me tear up too, thinking about what a difference we are making today!” —Adrian “Tonight I had a high school boy say, ‘I’m new to the whole reading for fun thing,’ and then show me the books he got for #wbnamerica.” —Lauren “I gave The Kite Runner to a veteran who had been stationed in Afghanistan. He was very excited to read the book and ‘learn something about the place and gain some understanding.’ So rewarding. Thank you to the organizers, authors and publishers!” —Jennifer “I'd like to let you know that just this night I received a packet of thank-you letters hand-written by most of the recipients of my 20 copies of The Hunger Games. These letters come from inmates at a local correctional facility, to whom I donated copies of my WBN book. … My favorite part of any letter was probably: ‘I think the idea for World Book Night is a beneficial concept to help people because for myself, I don't like reading. By you giving us this book, it was the first book that I ever read. I liked the book, and now I'm reading book two Catching Fire.’ (This man stated to my friend, who works at the facility, that this was the first full-length book he had ever read to completion in his life.)” —Heather

Thursday, April 24, 6:30pm: Pete Hautman
Wild Rumpus Books for Young Readers, Thursday, April 24 at 6:30pm
Finally, the day we've all been waiting for, is (almost) here. Klaatu Terminus, the final book in the Klaatu Diskos trilogy comes out on April 8th, and we're bursting with curiosity and excitement.

It's hard to describe this complicated and stunning trilogy. It includes: the rise and fall of societies and religions, maggot-like creatures, and disks that you can step through to travel to other times. The plot twists and turns through time, and we don't know how Pete Hautman kept it all straight when he wrote it.

In celebration of the release of Klaatu Terminus, we are going to have a big party, complete with arugula and goat cheese burgers. Come to Wild Rumpus on Thursday, April 24th at 6:30PM to party with Pete Hautman and us.

Also, read all three books (Obsidian Blade, Cydonian Pyramid, and of course, Klaatu Terminus). Your mind will be blown.

On the Come Up with Hannah Weyer and IFP (Independent Filmmaker Project)
The Loft Literary Center, Thursday, April 24 at 7pm
Join us for a reading, conversation, and film presentation with Hannah Weyer, filmmaker and author of On the Come Up, and Anna Simpson, the real-life heroine of Weyer's novel.

Hannah Weyer is a filmmaker whose narrative and documentary films have been screened at the Human Rights Watch and the New York film festivals and have won awards at the Sundance, Locarno, Melbourne, Doubletake, and South by Southwest film festivals. Her screenwriting credits include Life Support (2007), directed by Nelson George, which earned a Golden Globe Award for its lead actress, Queen Latifah. Weyer has worked with teens in the media arts for the past fifteen years and, along with her husband, the filmmaker Jim McKay, started an after-school film club at a public high school in Brooklyn. On the Come Up is her first novel.

About On the Come Up:
Written in an urban vernacular that’s electrifying and intimate, On the Come Up introduces a heroine who is irrepressible, dynamic, and unstintingly honest. Thirteen-year-old AnnMarie Walker dreams of a world beyond Far Rockaway, where the sway of the neighborhood keeps her tied to old ideas about success. While attending a school for pregnant teens, AnnMarie comes across a flyer advertising movie auditions in Manhattan. Astonishingly, improbably, and four months before she’s due to give birth—she lands a lead role. For a time, AnnMarie soars— acting for the camera, flying to the Sundance Film Festival, seeing her face on screen. But when the film fades from view and the realities of her life set in, AnnMarie’s grit and determination are the only tools she has left to keep her moving forward. Told with remarkable compassion, On The Come Up is a triumphant novel of aspiration and inspiration that powerfully illuminates the lives of the urban unseen. Like Sapphire’s Precious Jones, AnnMarie Walker will talk herself off the page and into your heart.

This event is in collaboration with IFP Minnesota and is part of IFP's McKnight funded Master Class series.

IFP Minnesota's mission is to advance a vibrant and diverse community of independent film and media artists through networking, education, funding, and opportunities for showcasing their work. IFP MN envisions a world where expression through images is encouraged and valued. It is the goal of IFP MN to lead the way in supporting the independent filmmaker by creating a healthy and viable filmmaking community in Minnesota. (The_Loft_Library)

Who's Afraid of a Children's Story?
The Loft Literary Center, Friday, April 25 at 6pm
Marek Oziewicz, Lisa Von Drasek, and Jack Zipes in Conversation with Charlotte Sullivan

Speculative stories, be they fairy tales or dystopian novels, have long enraptured young people—and unnerved adults, from parents to oppressive government officials. Yet these fanciful tales offer a door in the wardrobe, a portal to new possibilities. Why then do these same stories often trouble adults? What cultural beliefs about childhood do these anxieties reveal? And what is the hidden power of such fairy tales, fantasies, and dystopian worlds?

To explore these questions, Jack Zipes will offer the Czech film Who's Afraid of the Wolf, by Maria Prochazkova (2008, unavailable in the US) to illustrate his view that "children read the world through fairy tales." Children's literature scholars Marek Oziewicz, Lisa Von Drasek, and Jack Zipes will then discuss the unique possibilities of speculative stories for young people as well as adult resistance to these tales. Panel moderated by Charlotte Sullivan.

Marek Oziewicz is the Marguerite Henry Professor of Children's and Young Adult Literature in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Minnesota.

Charlotte Sullivan interviews children's authors for Write On! Radio at KFAI.

Lisa Von Drasek is the Curator of the Children's Literature Research Collections at the University of Minnesota.

Jack Zipes is professor emeritus of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota. In addition to his scholarly work, he is an active storyteller in public schools and has worked with children's theaters in Europe and the United States.

Who's Afraid of a Children's Story? is free and open to the public. The event kicks off the Children's and Young Adult Literature Conference (April 25–27, 2014). (The_Loft_Library)

Wild Rumpus, Nancy Carlson, and the Autism Society of Minnesota are hosting a special "Sensory Friendly Party" on Saturday, April 26th from 1 - 3PM.

We'll tell you exactly how it's going to go down, so that you can be prepared to have a great time. Nancy Carlson will read her new book, Armond Goes to a Party: A Book About Asperger's and Friendship. We'll have time to chat with Nancy about writing the book with her friend Armond. A sensory friendly, interactive arts program led by Upstream Arts. We'll do fun activities designed to help us express ourselves in alternative ways. Low key arts and crafts with puzzle pieces from Autism Society of Minnesota Treats! A portion of the proceeds from April 26th will go to Autism Society of Minnesota and Upstream Arts.

Literary Witnesses: Pattiann Rogers
The Loft Literary Center, Monday, April 28 at 7pm
Award-winning Colorado poet Pattiann Rogers is a rapturous voice of nature and theology, with a “boundless love of the world, and remarkable dexterity as a poet,” according to Orion Magazine. “Everything I see of heaven, I know by the earth,” she writes. She brings a field biologist’s eye to nature’s particulars, that rare poet combining hard science and gob-smacked reverence. She will read for Literary Witnesses at 7 p.m., on Monday, April 28 in Guild Hall. Her books will be for sale by Birchbark Books, and a reception will follow in Jones Commons. The event is free, with a free-will offering.

Pattiann Roger is the author of 15 books, including Firekeeper: New and Selected Poems (Milkweed Editions), a finalist for the Lenore Marshall Award from the Academy of American Poets and a Publisher’s Weekly Best Book of the Year. Her poems and essays appear often in the annual collection Best Spiritual Writing. Her collected essays, The Grand Array: Writings on Nature, Science and Spirit, was published in 2010 by Trinity University Press. Penguin Poets released her latest poetry collection, Holy Heathen Rhapsody. She lives near the Rocky Mountains with her husband, John Rogers, a geophysicist. She is a mother of two sons and has three grandsons.

Among her many prizes are the Lannan Literary Award for Poetry, the Bock Prize from Poetry, the Roethke Prize from Poetry Northwest, and the Strousse Award from Prairie Schooner. She worked with Poet’s House, New York, The Milwaukee County Zoo, and the Milwaukee Public Library on a three-year project, The Language of Conservation.

Literary Witnesses, a program of the Fine Arts Board, brings regional and national poets, including four U.S. Poet laureates, to add their voices to Plymouth’s artistic exploration of life and the spirit. (The_Loft_Library)
