Pathos Lit Magazine, a student-run literary magazine at PSU is having a release party for its last issue of the year on Wednesday, June 10th in the PSU ballroom. The reading will feature Monica Drake, previous Oregon Book Awards finalist and author of Clown Girl, The Thomas Pynchon Fake Book, and student writers.
On Wednesday, June 17, at rontoms in Portland, Oregon Council for the Humanities will host a Think & Drink with Ursula Le Guin and Oregon State University philosophy professor Lani Roberts. They will use the story The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas as the basis for a discussion about morality and self-deception.
Marc Acito, Oregon Book Award winner and author of How I Paid For College, is writing a play about penguins, aptly titled, Birds of a Feather. Marc is one of the playwrights that will be featured this summer at Portland Center Stage’s JAW festival, which takes place July 13-26. Be sure to check out Marc’s commentary on NPR, aptly titled (again!) Who Needs a Manual to Write Real Good?, about the 50th anniversary of Strunk and White’s Elements of Style.
It will make you laugh.
