Wonder Twin Powers Activate

blueroad.jpgLike superheroes who join forces for good, River City Books and the Contented Cow, I am pleased to report, are teaming up once again.

This time the night of literary fun features a collection of contributors to the popular new book “

Stardust and Fate: The Blueroad Reader,” who will read from and discuss their work at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 15, at The Cow in an event co-sponsored by River City.


Stardust and Fate: The Blueroad Reader” is the first volume in a collected series of new writing and art from the road, including the works of nearly four dozen writers, poets, and printmakers. The stories, essays, and poems tour some of many routes — seen and otherwise — running through people’s lives, in real and imaginary journeys. Pieces include fiction, journalism, verse, and memoir that are offbeat, quirky and surprising. Illustrated with original wood engravings, the collection explores the intersections and side roads of landscape, history, people places, memory, moment, chance and change.

Contributors include some heavy hitters: Freya Manfred, Robert Bly, John Calvin Rezmerski, Bill Holm, Joyce Sutphen, Joe Paddock, Terry Davis, Philip Bryant, Carol Barrett, Richard Robbins, Nancy Paddock, Roger Sheffer, Thomas R. Smith, Suzanne L. Bunkers, Nick Healy, and many others. Writers slated to appear at the Contented Cow include: Terry Davis, Freya Manfred, Candace Black, Richard Robbins, Joe Tougas, Rachael Hanel, James Silas Rogers, Ann Rosenquist Fee, Scott King, and John Gaterud.


Stardust and Fate: The Blueroad Reader” is on sale via River City Books for 15 percent off through the event, which is, of course, free and open to the public.
