Kim McMillon, the host of Arts in the Valley interviews Heike Hambley, the Artistic Director of Merced Shakespearefest, the only free outdoor Shakespeare festival in Merced County.

How the Merced Shakespeare Festival was born by Heike Hambley.
I love Shakespeare and all his characters, the lovers, the fools, the witches, the witty servants, the warriors and the timeless poetry. I also love Shakespeare festivals and Renaissance fairs and theatre and working with people to put on a finished production everybody can be proud of and have fun with.

Merced’s own Shakespeare festival was born out of these sentiments and helped by a successful production of “Twelfth Night” that I directed for Merced Center for the Performing Arts, now Playhouse Merced, in February 2002. Cast and crew had so much fun that at the cast party some of us decided to explore the possibility of bringing a Shakespeare festival to the whole community. Wonderful Shakespeare enthusiasts like Michael Egan, Julianne Aguilar, Carolyn Hart, and others brainstormed and discussed and worked hard. Three months later we had raised some money from generous friends, relatives and art lovers, got rehearsal space from the Playhouse, a non-profit umbrella from the Merced Arts Council and had rented the rarely used Merced Open Air Theatre in Applegate Park. This stage is a perfect Shakespearian space, wide open with pillars on both sides, a lot of sun and natural light for the performers, but green grass and shade trees for the audience. http://www.mercedshakespearefest.org/contact.htm

This summer, As You Like It, directed by Colton Dennis.

2013 PERFORMANCE DATES:
September 14, 15, 21 & 22, and possibly a 3rd weekend in Mariposa.

John Curl is an American poet, memoirist, translator, author, activist, and historian.

He is author of seven books of poetry, including Scorched Birth (2004), which former San Francisco poet laureate Jack Hirschman called “a book of wonders.” His best known book is probably his history of the cooperative and communalist movements, For All The People: Uncovering the Hidden History of Cooperation, Cooperative Movements, and Communalism in America (PM Press, 2009), which historian Howard Zinn described as “inspiring.” Memories of Drop City (2007) is his memoir of the 1960s communal movement and the first “hippie” commune, in Colorado, where he lived between 1966-69, which Ishmael Reed called “highly crafted and brilliant,” and Al Young described as “compelling.” His play The Trial of Christopher Columbus was produced by the PEN Oakland Writers Theater in Berkeley (2009). His poetry books include Columbus in the Bay of Pigs (1991); Decade (1987); and Tidal News (1982); and has published poems in numerous magazines and anthologies, including Words Upon the Waters, Oakland Out Loud, Blake Times, Left Curve, Central Park, Poetry USA, Anthology of East Bay Poets, Poetry Flash, and Pulse of the People.

Her first solo book of poetry, Smuggling Cherokee, was published by Greenfield Review Press and won the Diane Decorah award from the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas.

About the Book Rabbit Stories

Subatomic particles. String. Knots. The water in London, San Francisco, Tar Creek. A coy Spider. The Dance of DNA. Chestnut Man’s kiss. Songs made of strawberry soda. These are glimpses of the complex world in which a Tsalagi girl/woman lives. Named “Rabbit Food” after a wild rose, the girl is accompanied through life by irreverent guardian and teacher Rabbit, “a creature of trick and pleasure.” Kim Shuck’s collection is tenderly constructed, finely woven in and out of Rabbit Food’s lifetime as girl, young woman, new mother, and mature artist. Rabbit Stories winds through waters layered with dream and memory, loops back around time with a wise/cracking humor. I couldn’t put these stories down. They’re singing in me now; it feels as if the DNA in my cells has been transformed by, as Rabbit would say, “a joy in craft and artifact.” Brava! —Deborah A. Miranda, author of Bad Indians: A Tribal Memoir.

On Saturday, February 9, Arts in the Valley Host Kim McMillon will interview Poet Laureate of California Juan Felipe Herrera and award-winning musician and poet Avotcja. The show will air on 1480 KYOS AM at 8 pm on Saturday, and 2 pm on Sunday. You can also listen to the show on Arts in the Valley on Facebook.

‘Herrera’s work has received wide critical acclaim including numerous national and international awards. In a 2008 review of his work, Stephen Burt of the New York Times wrote, “All life, all art, involves boundaries, if only those of birth and death. Some poets keep us conscious of those boundaries; others, like Herrera, discover their powers by defying them. Many poets since the 1960s have dreamed of a new hybrid art, part oral, part written, part English, part something else: an art grounded in ethnic identity, fueled by collective pride, yet irreducibly individual too. Many poets have tried to create such an art: Herrera is one of the first to succeed.”’

On March 17 & 18, Arts in the Valley host Kim McMillon interviews poet Norman Finkelstein and medical intuitive Monet Brooks.

To listen to poet Norman Finkelstein, click onto the link:finkelstein

Norman Finkelstein received his B.A. from Binghamton University and his Ph.D. from Emory University. He is a Professor of English at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he has lived since 1980. He is the author of eight books of poetry and five books of literary criticism, and has written extensively about modern poetry and Jewish literature. His most recent books are SCRIBE (Dos Madres Press, 2009), On Mount Vision: Forms of the Sacred in Contemporary American Poetry (University of Iowa Press, 2010), and INSIDE THE GHOST FACTORY (Marsh Hawk Press, 2010).

INSIDE THE GHOST FACTORY finds Norman Finkelstein returning to his pre-TRACK fascination with the Coleridgean fancy, first delineated in Restless Messengers. Here, however, Samuel Coleridge meets William Gibson and the result is a retro- Blakean myth for the age of Text and Tweet. These transmissions from ‘elsewhere,’ manufactured on the assembly lines of ‘Ghosts, Incorporated. Poetry, Incorporated’ (Limited, I might add), are gleefully dissected by Finkelstein as so much ‘clap-trap.’ Still, there’s no correcting the blur of occultation and occlusion for the poet who believes ‘Books were made for secrets they cannot/keep: this is what it means to be/read'”—Tyrone Williams.
