I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

Jewish Studies special events March 23-26

Center for Jewish Studies 35th Anniversary Events

 

from press release

UNC Asheville’s Center for Jewish Studies (CJS) will celebrate its 35th anniversary with a series of special events on and off campus March 23-26. 

Rick Chess talk and reading

UNC Asheville Professor of English Richard Chess has been director of the CJS for the past 25 years and will deliver the 2017 Phyllis Freed Sollod Memorial Lecture on the celebration’s opening night. A poet and essayist, Chess will offer a vision of Jewish culture as suggested by internationally acclaimed poets and writers who have been hosted by the CJS, including Yehuda Amichai, Rodger Kamenetz, Jacqueline Osherow, Shirley Kaufman, Peter Cole and Robin Becker. Chess also will read briefly from his forthcoming book, Love Nailed to the Doorpost, slated to be published in March.

Film about Center

The evening also will include a short film on the history of the CJS by Marty Gillen and a dessert reception. This event is free and open to the public at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 23, in UNC Asheville’s Reuter Center. 

International performer and cantor Danny Maseng

The celebration will continue with two events featuring Danny Maseng, who rose to stardom at a young age as a musician and on Israeli television and then arrived in the U.S. in 1971 under the patronage of Israel’s Prime Minister Golda Meir to star in a Broadway musical, Only Fools are Sad. He has gone on to record a dozen albums, stage a critically acclaimed one-man show that had a long off-Broadway run and toured internationally, and he has guest-starred in many TV shows. He is also a spiritual leader and cantor, supporting the arts in the Jewish community. 

Maseng will present The Passion, the Beauty, the Heartbreak: Israel through Poetry and Music at 3 p.m. on Friday, March 24 at the Reuter Center. This presentation is free and open to everyone. 

Maseng will then perform a concert of inspirational music from Jewish and world traditions on the main stage at Isis Restaurant and Music Hall, 743 Haywood Rd. in Asheville, at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 26. Tickets are $15 with food and beverages additional. For dinner reservations and/or tickets, call 828.575.2737 or visit isisasheville.com
