Subject: Food Bank Benefit: KY (USA) - May 13th
From: DannyC
Date: 23 Apr 09 - 06:25 PM

Feeding America Network Benefit - Wed., May 13th - Lexington, KY
Feed the Hungry with Poetry and Song!

Some of Lexington's literary and musical lights will gather for the first Literary Cafe South at Natasha's Bistro and Bar (112 Esplanade in downtown Lexington) on Wednesday, May 13th, at 8 p. m.

We will be raising money to support the God's Pantry Food Bank, part of the Feeding America network, providing food for the hungry of Central and Eastern Kentucky. All proceeds of the night--the admission fee of $8.00 per person plus any additional donations--will go to that noble cause. (If someone wants to give a hundred dollars at the door, we won't argue!)

The reading's title is "Ancestral Hunger," a challenge, if you will, to those of the readers and performers who take it up.

Reading and performing for you that night will be:

Elaine Humphreys Cook, M. Mus., is principal harpist with the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra, second harpist with the Louisville Orchestra, and has performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. She appears on the Pro Organo label with the Christ Church Girls Choir in "Dancing Day" by John Rutter and "A Ceremony of Carols" by Benjamin Britten.

Donna Ison, playwright and novelist, describes herself as a "recovering actor turned writer who still occasionally relapses." She is the resident playwright for the Kentucky Historical Society and develops historical drama for museums nationwide. She's also the author of the recently published novel, _The Miracle of Myrtle: Saint Gone Wild_.

Liam's Fancy, the duet of Beverly Buchanan on box (accordion, to the uninitiated) and Dan Cummins on guitar and vocals, will play some Irish-traditional, pub music for us. And they'll be backed by John Skelton, renowned flutist and woodwinds player and teacher. Liam's Fancy and Mr. Skelton are known throughout the region for their skillful, lively entertainment--available live and on on C. D.

Marta Miranda, M. S. W., is a professor in the faculty of the Department of Anthropology, Sociology, and Social Work at Eastern Kentucky University, where she also serves as the director of the Women's Studies program. Herself a Cuban immigrant, she is also a poet and activist, working and writing for social and economic justice for immigrants, victims of violence, and the mentally ill.

David Park Musella, a displaced native of Buffalo, New York, hosted the Center for Inquiry/Just Buffalo Literary Cafe, there, for four years. He is a published poet and science writer, a professional editor, and has worked for animals and the environment. The grandson of Irish immigrants whose families survived the Famine, he is conscious of the importance of food when one is hungry.

Katerina Stoykova-Klemer grew up in Bourgas, Bulgaria, and emigrated to the United States in 1995. She is a published poet, serves on the editorial staff of the on-line, literary journal, _Public/Republic_, and is the host of the weekly, literary, radio show, _Accents_, on W. R. F. L., 88.1 F. M. She is currently working toward an M. F. A. in creative writing from Spalding University.

Some of the readers and performers will have books and C. D.s at the site for purchase by attendees.

And good food and beverages will be available for purchase, thanks to the fine staff of Natasha's.

The event will be digitally recorded--with still photographs--for presentation at the Web site for ThinkTwice Radio--with the suggestion that those who stop by to listen should donate to their own, local food banks.
