    This presentation contributes to our understanding of major black writers by discussing the promise and problem concerning the extraordinary literary successes of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Colson Whitehead, two of our most widely discussed contemporary African American authors. Over the last few years, in addition to appearing on The New York Times bestseller list and receiving National Book Award honors, works by Coates and Whitehead have been lauded by Toni Morrison, Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and hundreds of others. Yet, the kinds of remarkable receptions that Coates and Whitehead have enjoyed rarely extended to large numbers of black writers, and thus sometimes prompted noticeable intra-racial resentment. A consideration of the responses to Coates and Whitehead reveals why the rise of major black writers is cause for celebration and frustration. 

    Howard Rambsy II is a Professor of Literature at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. He has taught a wide range of literature courses, and he has coordinated more than 200 public humanities projects concentrating on African American literature and cultural history. He is the author of The Black Arts Enterprise (2011), a study of a defining African American cultural movement that took place during the 1960s and 1970s, and his articles on black literature have appeared in various publications. He has been an active blogger, charting multiple recent developments in African American writing.

    The Beatles, J. K. Rowling and John F. Kennedy. These are just a few of the signatures on the market these days that in all likelihood are not authentic. In this workshop we will learn some of the basic rules in evaluating autographs and documents. I will also highlight some of the "great" literary forgers of our time and the techniques they used in order to fool even the experts. Several forged documents and photos will be presented to the group for self examination. So bring your eye-glass and Deerstalker cap for an afternoon of detective work.  Max: 10.

    Built in 1890 by the Knights of Pythius, this three-story structure was renovated by a local business woman in 2017 to become a 12 room inn. The owner/operator, Kimberlee Davidson, will be there to give us a guided tour and provide us with full color brochures. There is a lift for those uncomfortable with climbing stairs. We'll be enjoying lunch at the Whitling Whimsy Cafe, 107 E. Main, Casey, before the tour. Let us know if you can attend either or both gatherings.

    Brighton Beach Memoirs 

    By Neil Simon

    Directed by J. Kevin Doolen

    Brighton Beach Memoirs is part one of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states "if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here."

    On April 26, 1952, a guard ship, the USS HOBSON, collided with a larger aircraft carrier, the USS WASP. The HOBSON split completely in two and, in less than 4 minutes, descended into the cold Atlantic water. On that dark and moonless night, 175 US Navy Sailors and their Captain were thrust brutally to the bottom of the ocean where they rest in eternal sleep. Sixty-one survivors of the HOBSON were rescued by the heroic efforts of sailors serving on the accompanying ship, the RODMAN, and on the WASP which had a huge gaping hole in her bow. This book is being written at the request of the son of one of the sailors serving on the HOBSON who died that night. This young sailor was one of the 176 who never got to go home, never experienced family again. He didn’t get to hold the child he was expecting nor care for him as he was growing up. Many stories have been shared by the survivors and witnesses of this catastrophe. This is an account of an error in judgment which resulted in a tragedy met by those who serve with competent action, integrity, kindness, and reverence for those who serve.
