ABOUT AUTHOR DAN GERBER

A Visionary’s Everyday Lyricism

The celebrated poet Dan Gerber is the author of over a dozen books of poems, short stories, literature, and fiction. His poems have been lauded for their placid and perspicacious observations of small and ordinary wonders, leaving his readers breathlessly more attuned.

Gerber has long believed in the power of writing as an exchange rather than a stronghold. In 1968 he co-founded the literary magazine Sumac with his friend and collaborator Jim Harrison. Though its production ceased after four years, its influence was abiding. Sumac was a beacon of eclecticism amid an era of tribalism in literature. Aiming, from the start, to be free of preconceptions about what a “Sumac” poem should be, according to Gerber, the magazine had one single criteria for its selections: “only that it seemed to us a good poem and a worthy addition.”

Annie Dillard has called Gerber “one of our finest living poets.” ForeWord magazine has likewise sung its praises, saying, “Dan Gerber’s poems are quick, graceful, alert to their surroundings, and rarely wasting a motion.” His most recent volume of poetry, Sailing Through Cassiopeia, published in 2013 by Copper Canyon Press, was critically applauded for its incisive and timeless lyricism.

In his newest book of poetry, Particles, Gerber draws upon eight previous collections and including a book-length selection of new poems, this retrospective tunes its ears and eyes to the natural world and a provenance that includes the influence of English
Romanticism, Buddhism, Rilke, and the natural world. Pastoral and
expansive, Gerber’s poetry is infatuated with vast ideas and minute occurrences
—and sings to transitory life.
Gerber’s poems and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, The Nation, Poetry, and The Michigan Quarterly Review and have been selected for publication in The Best American Poetry. Nominated for two Pushcart Prizes, Gerber received The Mark Twain Award in 2001 and was The Michigan Author Award recipient in 1992. His book A Primer on Parallel Lives was awarded the Michigan Notable Book Award by the Library of Michigan in 2008.

Gerber is a Michigan native and graduate of Michigan State University. He is also a former racecar driver. As a journalist, Gerber traveled extensively, particularly in Africa. He lives with his wife in Santa Ynez, California.

Interlochen, MI  49643 Map

Revitalize your existing fiber roving or design your own colors and textural effects for a special project, while exploring the drum carder in this one day workshop. The process of fiber blending known as drum carding uses a drum of tooth covered cloth to separate, align, and combine fibers in preparation to be dyed, spun, or felted. Custom blends for specific textures, color combinations, and striping effects can be created on the drum carder, giving you more control of your project's outcome. Drum carder vocabulary and procedures will be explained, followed by a discussion of fiber types and how each type of carding cloth affects the processing of the fiber. You will apply this knowledge to achieve a desired visual effect in your spun or felted project. Methods of carding will include tweeds, striped/gradated, and textural batts. Handouts will be provided with instructions and suggestions for methods spinning or felting your freshly made batts. The possibilities are limitless!

Halloween: Movie & a Brew Bash w/ The Workshop

Oct 31, 8:30pm

The State Theatre & Bijou by the Bay
233 E Front St
Traverse City, MI  49684 Map

“Halloween” wasn’t the first slasher movie, but it is the film that revolutionized the subgenre and perfected it. The film takes a simple formula – mad slasher escapes from mental hospital, stalks and kills unaware babysitters – and turns it into a master class in directing. So forget all the masked wannabes and knife-wielding suburban loonies that came after, and marvel at the streamlined power of John Carpenter’s film. Almost four decades later, it’s still close to flawless. Who knew a white William Shatner mask could be so scary?

And there's never been a better time to see it on the big screen than in a newly restored version with an exclusive intro from the master of horror himself, John Carpenter, on Halloween night no less, with our friends from The Workshop Brewing Company in the house serving up their delicious hand-crafted brews. Plus a costume contest, giveaways, and more!

Hardcover book: Nine Lessons I Learned from My Father is 20% off at Horizon Books. Release date: October 31, 2017.

ABOUT AUTHOR MURRAY HOWE

In Nine Lessons I Learned from My Father, Murray Howe’s upcoming memoir about his hockey-legend dad, Gordie Howe, the author shows readers the man behind the hockey mask.

Over the course of his twenty-five-season NHL career playing for the Detroit Red Wings, Gordie Howe set numerous records. Of the 21 consecutive seasons he was a top-ten leading scorer, he was the top scorer for ten. Gordie was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1971 and received the NHL’s inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.

In his book, Murray remembers his personal hero, who also happens to be a national hero, as a man of great principle and a wellspring of generosity. He recounts the outpouring of admiration that followed his dad’s passing, an experience that demonstrated the full greatness of his father—not the legend, but the person of deep integrity, at once a luminary and a common role model.

The youngest of Gordie’s three sons, Murray Howe practices radiology as the head of Sports Medicine Imaging at Toledo Radiological Associates in Ohio. Unlike his brothers, he didn’t inherit his father’s athleticism. He aspired to his dad in other ways. In Nine Lessons, the author considers the true significance of greatness, stepping back from the hockey all-star to pay tribute to the ordinary goodness of an extraordinary man. That man just so happened to be “Mr. Hockey.”

ABOUT GUEST HOST JOHN U. BACON

Guest host John U. Bacon met Gordie Howe at Detroit Metro Airport when Bacon was still a high school hockey player. He’s since enjoyed a long evening of stories with Gordie’s son Mark, an NHL Hall of Famer, and wrote Howe’s obituary for National Public Radio. Bacon worked the better part of two decades as a writer, public speaker, radio commentator, college teacher, and high school hockey coach.

He has authored or coauthored eight books on sports and business, including Walgreens: America’s Corner Store, Cirque du Soleil: The Spark, Bo’s Lasting Lessons: The Legendary Coach Teaches the Timeless Fundamentals of Leadership, which hit The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal’s Business Best Seller lists. He then researched and wrote a trio of books covering big-time college football from the inside out: Three and Out: Rich Rodriguez and the Michigan Wolverines in the Crucible of College Football, Fourth and Long: The Fight for the Soul of College Football, Endzone: The Rise, Fall, and Return of Michigan Football. All three were New York Times best sellers.

Bacon is publishing two books this fall: Playing Hurt: My Journey from Despair to Hope, coauthored with the late John Saunders of ESPN. The book tells Saunders’ life story in dramatic detail. His second book is coming out November 7: The Great Halifax Explosion, which recounts the largest manmade detonation prior to Hiroshima. In 1917 a ship laden with explosives sailed out of Brooklyn’s harbor for the battlegrounds of World War I; when it stopped in Halifax, Nova Scotia, an extraordinary disaster awaite.
Bacon teaches at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and at the University of Michigan, where the students selected him for the 2009 Golden Apple award, given annually to the University’s top teacher.

Sebastian Junger
In 1997, Sebastian Junger penned The Perfect Storm, a nonfiction tale about the crew of the Andrea Gail fishing boat. It became an international bestseller, was adapted into a Hollywood film starring George Clooney, and, it’s worth noting, contributed to the explosion of an eponymous household phrase.

Junger is an internationally acclaimed journalist, best-selling author, and Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker for his 2010 film Restrepo. He returns to the National Writers Series to discuss his most recent book, Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging and his National Geographic documentary Hell on Earth.

Tribe was selected as the 2017 NWS Community Reads, with schools and libraries helping to spread its profound message. In Tribe, Junger takes a close look at the fractured domestic state to which American veterans make their homecoming. His ethnographic study investigates the tribal instinct of humankind and delves into queries on war, trauma, and—as its subtitle promises—belonging.

Junger last joined the National Writers Series in 2011. His work often deals with the encroachment of chaos on ordinary life. A contributing editor at Vanity Fair, Junger has won the National Magazine Award and the Dupont-Columbia Award for broadcast journalism and received critical acclaim for his stunningly crafted nonfiction books.

Phil Caputo
In March of 1965, Marine Lieutenant Philip J. Caputo landed at Da Nang with the first ground combat unit deployed to Vietnam. Sixteen months later, having served on the line in one of modern history’s ugliest wars, he returned home—physically whole but emotionally wasted, his youthful idealism forever gone.

A Rumor of War, also selected as an NWS Community Reads, is more than one soldier’s story. Upon its publication in 1977, it shattered America’s indifference to the fate of the men sent to fight in the jungles of Vietnam. In the years since then, it has become not only a basic text on the Vietnam War but also a renowned classic in the literature of wars throughout history and, as Caputo explains, of “the things men do in war and the things war does to men.” The Washington Post wrote that, “In this powerful book, Caputo does what most of us have yet to do: face the enemy within and overcome the wounds.”

Phil Caputo is an award-winning journalist—the co-winner of a Pulitzer Prize who worked nine years for the Chicago Tribune and shared a Pulitzer Prize in 1972 for his reporting on election fraud in Chicago. The author of seven works of fiction and a second volume of memoir, he divides his time between Connecticut and Arizona. He recently published the novel, Some Rise by Sin. He and his wife, Leslie Ware, divide their time between Norwalk, Connecticut, and Patagonia, Arizona.

Guest Host Jack Segal is a retired US diplomat who served overseas in Russia, Israel/Palestine, Greece and Botswana, and as a member of the START arms control negotiating team in Geneva. As a senior diplomat, with his wife Karen, they created the first U.S. Consulate General to central Russia. Jack went on to become a member of the National Security Council under President Clinton. He later served as senior political advisor to the NATO operational commander in Afghanistan. With Karen, he co-chairs the The International Affairs Forum of Traverse City. He teaches at local colleges and to graduate students online. In another life, he served as an Army officer in Vietnam with the 4th Infantry Division. He enjoys political humor, particularly U.S. presidential theater.

Hardcover books: Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging is 20% off at Horizon Books.

A Rumor of War, Special 40th hardcover edition, 20% off at Horizon Books.
