THREE CHEERS FOR APRIL EVENTS!
WEDNESDAY 04 APRIL @7pm
BREAD SCIENCE with Emily Beuhler
Join us and learn about the science of bread by local author, chemist, and
breadmaker Emily Beuhler. Learn how to make your own bread and learn about
everything that goes into the process. If you have ever wondered how they
could pack so much deliciousness in that bread at Weaver Street Market,
Beuhler is the answer. With a PhD in Chemistry but with an intense love for
kitchen chemistry, Emily knows all. Stop by, listen, learn, try some of her
bread, and take home a copy of her book!
TUESDAY 10 APRIL @ 5pm
WAR TAX RESISTANCE INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP
"If you work for peace, stop paying for war": With this in mind, come learn
about the options as well as the risks of war tax resistance. Hosted by a
member of the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee. This is
part of War Resistance Tuesdays across town, and in preparation for the Tax
Day Demonstration the following Tuesday.
THURSDAY 12 APRIL @7pm
ALL WILL BE REVEALED by Robert Anthony Siegel
Siegel, a creative-writing professor at UNC-W, will be here to present his
latest novel from MacAdam-Cage, a small press from Denver, CO. In
early-nineteenth-century New York, Augustus Auerbach, crippled since
childhood, is obsessed with his highly lucrative work as a pornographer,
which he thinks is the next greatest art form. Then one of his most prized
models talks him into attending a seance with spiritualist Verena Swann,
whose gift has been exploited and augmented with fake special effects by her
brother-in-law. When Verena appears to put Augustus in touch with his
long-dead and much-loved mother, Augustus finds that he is no longer
satisfied with the isolated life he has been living.
FRIDAY 13 APRIL @6pm
2nd Annual Silent Art Auction Benefit and Potluck!
This is your chance to take home some swell artwork from local artists and
support Internationalist Books at the same time! Artwork of all kinds can
be viewed all day, and the potluck and final bidding freakout happens 6-9
pm. So bring some food and nonalcoholic beverages, and enjoy the evening.
Most proceeds will go to benefit the bookshop and keep us and the mission
THURSDAY 19 APRIL @7pm
COLD RUNNING CREEK by Zelda Lockhart
Lockhart, author of Fifth Born, will be here to discuss her latest novel,
Cold Running Creek. It is a lyrical, personal, and profoundly realistic
portrayal of figures of our past whose stories, until now, lay buried
beneath the rubble of slavery and Civil War. Lockhart presents a novel that
is as significant as Alex Haley's Roots and as sensitive in the portrayal of
its characters as Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God.
