Poetry Reading Tonight

24 09 2014


From Jacki Berger in Creative Writing:  Please come to Wiegand Gallery tonight at 7:30 to hear wonderful Bay Area poets Matthew Zapruder and Austin Smith, then stay for the reception and book signing.

Added benefit: viewing the Wiegand’s current show The Roots of Spirit.   Here’s a preview of the poetry, from one of the poets:


My father would wake early and calmly
go about the business of giving himself
cancer. Red, the color itself,
sloshing in the tank behind him,
he’d drive the fencerows all morning,
spraying thistles.
I’ve always loved thistles
for how they hold their beauty
apart from us,
their purple blossoms
more beautiful for being
pain’s fountaining,
like the beauty of the pain of martyrs.
In this way also they are
like those rare creatures,
mountain lions, owls, you
never dream of seeing, much less
touching. Which is why
he had to kill them
from a distance, a spherical mist
hanging in the air, a tongueless
bell of poison. Because who scythes
anymore? I can still see my father
unmasked like an actor backstage,
breathing as deeply
as he ever breathed,
while behind him already they were
beginning to yellow
like old, old annals in a chest
of drawers no one opens anymore.

parkingpermitOK, not glamorous or exciting, but this definitely falls in the “need to know” category.  These are the LAST THREE DAYS that you can purchase parking permits during the evening hours.  From the Director of Public Safety Daniel Torrez:
Please pass this information along to any students who may be speaking about parking permits/registration/citations:
The Department of Public Safety Parking Services will once again have extended hours of operations for those students who failed to purchase a new permit or register their vehicle on campus. The extended hours were initially held August 18th – September 12th to coincide with the new semester/academic year. Extended hours of operation will be as follows:
Tuesday, September 23rd-Thursday, September 25th 8:00am-6:30pm.
Normal hours of operation, M-F 8:00am-4:00pm will resume on the 26th. This information will also be delivered to their NDNU student email account, which is the preferred method of communication for official business. Please ask your students to check their student email on a regular basis.
