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)

Motherhood & Words Reading
The Loft Literary Center, Wednesday, May 7 at 7pm
Join us for Kate Hopper's 8th Annual Motherhood & Words Reading, a showcase of excellent literary nonfiction about motherhood, featuring Tami Mohamed Brown, Susanne Paola Antonetta, and Marcelle Soviero.

So often in our society, writing by a group of people is lumped together and dismissed. This has certainly been the case with motherhood literature. In 1976, Adrienne Rich began Of Woman Born with this: “We know more about the air we breathe, the seas we travel, than about the nature and meaning of motherhood.” Almost four decades later, we have made progress: there are several stellar literary journals that feature fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that grapple with the dark and beautiful truths of parenthood; motherhood scholarship has found a place in some academic settings; and a number of fine memoirs about motherhood have been published. Yet, motherhood literature is still largely ignored, and motherhood memoir, christened “momoir,” is routinely dismissed.

But like all great writing, literature about motherhood, is, as Patricia Hampl says about memoir, “an attempt to find not only a self but a world.” Motherhood literature is not about motherhood; it uses motherhood as a lens through which to see the world.

Tami Mohamed Brown received her MFA in creative writing from Hamline University. She has been the recipient of a Blacklock Nature Sanctuary Fellowship, a Loft Mentor Series Award, a MN Emerging Writer Grant, and an artist residency through the National Park Service at Devil’s Tower. Tami writes regularly for the Minnesota Women’s Press, and her work has recently appeared in Brevity, Mizna, Sweet, Literary Mama, and in the anthology, The Heart of All That Is: Reflections on Home. She is finishing work on her memoir, The First American Wife: Barefoot and Pregnant in the Nile Delta. She lives in Bloomington with her Egyptian husband and teenage daughter, and finds inspiration on her daily bus commute to her 9–5 office job in downtown Minneapolis.

Susanne Paola Antonetta’s most recent book, Make Me a Mother, a memoir and study of adoption, was published by W.W. Norton in February of 2014. Awards for her poetry and prose include a New York Times Notable Book, an American Book Award, a Library Journal Best Science book of the year, a Lenore Marshall Award finalist, a Pushcart prize, and others. She is also coauthor of Tell It Slant: Creating, Refining and Publishing Creative Nonfiction. Her essays and poems have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Parade Magazine, Orion, and many anthologies. She lives in Bellingham, Washington, with her husband and son. Her website is www.suzannepaola.com.

Marcelle Soviero is the owner and Editor-in-Chief of Brain, Child: The Magazine for Thinking Mothers, an award-winning literary magazine for mothers. She is the host of Carousel, a 22-year running Cablevision/Internet interview-style talk show, and the author of An Iridescent Life, Essay son Motherhood and Stepmotherhood. Marcelle’s essays have appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times, Huffington Post, Babble.com, Salon, Literary Mama, Eating Well, New York Metro, and Brain, Child. She has also appeared on American Public Media’s radio show, The Story. Marcelle lives in Wilton, Connecticut with her husband and five children.

It could be a plum in a William Carlos Williams poem, a skull in Hamlet, or a Sorcerer’s Stone in Harry Potter, but whether object, idea, or belief, some things just call to us as sacred in a piece of writing. What’s sacred to you?

Join the Loft and Minneapolis Institute of Arts for an interactive event that will have you exploring the MIA’s Sacred exhibition through the lens of the Hero’s Sacred Journey. Activities throughout the event will invite you to write, exchange, and rebuild your own version of the Hero’s Journey. You’ll get to explore the exhibition in a new light, examine some questions about the meaning of sacred, and find some time to share a thought (or a drink) with fellow wanderers. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event.
