Mad River Festival: Whether We Like It Or Not

The madness in Blue Lake continues with Whether We Like It Or Not.  Originally created for the 2014 Thesis Festival, the production was then shown at the New Orleans Fringe Festival and New York City as part of the Flint and Tinder series at The Tank.  Now it's back at Dell'Arte!  Check it out at the Carlo Theater tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m.

Creators Ariel Lauryn and Lucy Shelby spoke with me about returning to Blue Lake, the play, and other relatively interesting things.

Book Reading Today at Because Coffee

Cliff Berkowitz / Tuesday, June 28 @ 8:05 a.m. / Literature

This morning I had the pleasure of talking to up-and-coming author Kendra Namednil. For the record, I have known Kendra Lindemann since she was a little girl. It is always exciting to kids you've known grow into amazing adults. If you haven't noticed, Kendra's nom de plume is the reverse of Lindemann, minus the extra N.

In the years since I have know her, Kendra has become quite an accomplished writer. She has written many books. Her current series called "A Vow Unbroken." It will eventually be a 12 book series. She has currently written 8 of the 12 and is currently writing 9 & 10 concurrently. This series is in the fantasy genre leaning on the darker side. The first book in group will soon be released called "Borehole Bizarre." 

Kendra is releasing this book though Inkshares.com. Inkshares is a unique publisher designed for the independent author. You can pre-order either an ebook or hardcopy on the website. Once the pre orders reach 250 it will be published. FYI, Kendra is well on her way to that magic number.

To help her get there quicker she is having a book reading today, 4pm at "Because Coffee," 300 F Street, Eureka. At the event she will be giving out gifts to those who pre-order at the event, plus there will also be a free raffle for some of these goodies as well. Gifts include a hand-painted mug coffee mug, etched glass cocoa mug, and hand painted coaster All pictured above.
