Enjoy an evening of short stories and poetry, coffee and tortes, as the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s Fellowship Hall dons a café atmosphere, Saturday, August 18, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Arts commentator Dr. Micheal Kleinherne, author of Daniel and Die Aktion, reads short stories from his first book, The Shooting Break. Currently under translation from German, these stories of relationships—from the mammotomy of working in a food cart to the risks of being a foreign tourist in off-the-beaten path Arizona—capture the nuances of today in Hemingway-esque crisp short sentences. This is part of the annual Summer Visiting Scholars Series sponsored by Adult Learning Programs (ALPs).
Kleinherne has taught at colleges in Michigan, New Orleans, and Ohio, as well as many years at Eichstätt University. With his wife, Monika Bayer, Michael makes his home in the countryside outside hat sunny Bavarian college town.
Henry Amick punctuates the program here and there with free-association travel poems. He has written for Interior Design magazine, developed educational curriculum for museums, and is in agent hunt for his debut novel The Road Les [sic] Took. After living in Wales, Maine, Sweden, Detroit, Victoria, and Portland, Amick enjoys calling Port Townsend home.
Dessert and coffee offered. Doors open at 6:00. Free.
