Oct 19: Speaking at The Wednesday Club
I’m very much looking forward to special opportunity to share my photography and writing with a receptive audience in Danville on Wednesday, October 19.
This will be my 2nd visit to the Wednesday cCub——a women’s organization that has a long history and a large and active body of members.
My first engagement was in October 2007, and I offered then what I called a “visual essay” consisting of the reading of three essays (on relationship to place, children and nature, and natural history) and the simultaneous viewing of few dozen related images projected during the readings. It was well received by more than 100 people in the audience.
This year, the emphasis will also be on photography, with a presentation called “Nothing Ordinary: the Aesthetics of Place in Language and Light.” During the 30 min. presentation, after some brief introductory remarks to put the photography in the larger context of my writing and thinking, an uninterrupted 14 minute digital photographic seriesÂ will feature some 100 images, with pleasing transitions and Celtic—Appalachian instrumental music that adds to the aesthetic impact of the program. A brief discussion will follow, and I will be available to sign books and chat with guests. Twenty photographic notecards will be on display and for sale.
The event is open to the public. The presentation begins at 3:45. The location is the Wednesday club, located at 1002 Main Street in Danville, Virginia.
Please consider coming, and tell anyone you know in that area to come with you!
The first person (as if there will be dozens!) to tell me or someone at the books-and-notecards table that you read about this meeting at Fragments from Floyd can claim a free notecard.
