Wake Forest professors Lynn Book and Amy Catanzano host an Art After Dark workshop from 6-8 p.m. tonight at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro. From the description: “They are kindred spirits in plumbing diverse sources in their own creative works, ranging from poetry and neo-scientific fiction to performance. Join them as they lead a workshop comprised of dialogue, reading and interaction illuminating the extraordinary work of artist Nancy Rubins.” Sounds good to me.
Also at UNCG: Dan Rosen’s play, a dark comedy called “The Last Supper,” begins tonight. Here’s more information.
Speaking of colleges, Greensboro College hosts Biblical scholar John Kutsko for its 51st annual Jean F. Ward lecture at 7:30 p.m. in the Memorial Chapel on campus. Kutsko is the executive director of the Society of Biblical Literature and an affiliate professor of biblical studies at Emory University. He also helped form the International Qur’anic Studies Association.
There is an introduction to genealogy session at the Greensboro Central Library downtown at 7:30 p.m., but this is at the same location (at 7 p.m.) and sounds more interesting: “Mike Dunn, retired from the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, will share experiences of thirty years of travel to Pocosin Lakes and Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuges.”
Speaking of libraries and meetings, a Duke [Energy] Action Group meeting is happening at 6 p.m. at the Glenwood Branch Library in Greensboro, according to Winston-Salem activist Kim Porter. I think it’s fair to say the coal-ash spill will be addressed.
