10/24/17 6:30 pm: The Kansas City Public Library – A Conversation With Stewart O’Nan

Tuesday, October 24, 2017
6:30 pm
4801 Main Street, KC, MO 64112
There’s no pigeonholing novelist Stewart O’Nan or his books. They are, The New York Times said, “as remarkable for their precise, economical language and depth of characterization as for the fact that each is as different from its predecessor, in style, tone and narrative approach, as if it had come from a different author.”

O’Nan’s work spans from Snow Angels and Last Night at the Lobster to a nonfiction collaboration with Stephen King, Faithful: Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season. In conjunction with his four-day stay as the Cockefair Writer in Residence at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, he discusses his craft and career in a conversation with Angela Elam of KCUR-FM’s New Letters on the Air.

Co-presented by the Writers at Work Round Table, the Carolyn Benton Cockefair Chair at UMKC, and the UMKC English Department.

Mark it down on your calendars!  On Sunday, October 22 at 9PM ET, Anthony Bourdain’s show Parts Unknown will be featuring Pittsburgh.  Here’s the blurb:

Pittsburgh (airdate: October 22) Bourdain delves into a dining scene at a crossroads: part iconic steel city defined by blue-collar, working-class comfort food – steak and potatoes, sausage and sauerkraut – and part foodie boom-town catering to the new high-tech industry. Bourdain criss-crosses the fault lines of old and new by sitting down with, among others, professional wrestlers, a civil rights activist, and writer and Pittsburgh native Stewart O’Nan.  Pioneer chefs of the city’s burgeoning restaurant scene Sonja Finn and Justin Severino host a back-country pig roast.  And chef Kevin Suousa serves grass fed beef short ribs at his new restaurant, Superior Motors.


A Literary Auction to Benefit Planned Parenthood

Feeling hopeless? Helpless? Frustrated and furious at the way women’s health care is under attack?

So are we.

So we decided to get some of our writer friends together to raise some money for an organization that is very close to our hearts: Planned Parenthood of the Mid-Hudson Valley.

What: Books. Good books. Books which – let’s be honest – you wanted to read anyway. But these books…these books are special. In honor of Planned Parenthood’s 101st year of operation, we’ve asked our authors to do a little something special on page 101. Cartoons, writing tips, behind-the-scenes thoughts: nowhere else but at WH101. (there are a few exceptions – noted in the item descriptions.)

Where: right here.

When: Bidding opens at 9 AM on July 2, 2017, and closes at 10 PM on July 15, 2017.

How: Make yourself an account. Grab your credit card. Bid. Get an awesome book. Make a difference.
