This month's guest speakers are Art and Susan Zuckerman, hosts of the WVOX "Z Travel & Leisure" radio show on Mondays from 8 to 9pm on 1460AM. Their primary topic will be "How To Be a Good Radio Show Guest and Promote Your Book." In order to actually demonstrate interview techniques, they will conduct a mock radio interview of author John Barbieri, a trial lawyer who was recently interviewed about his work and books on their program. Within this framework, the Zuckermans, who are writers and marketing specialists, will discuss ways a writer can create a positive personal image while effectively using marketing strategies. Ample time will be set aside for Q&As.

In our continuing effort to enable members to share personal thoughts pertaining to their writing and news of works-in-progress (or germinating), during the second half of the meeting, attendees will be given the opportunity to tell us what book(s) and/or writers have influenced them and their work the most. For example, how and why did you get started as a writer? Did a writer or a book help you define your goals? How about genre? Why not start thinking about it now. Then, come prepared to speak for about three minutes.

Suggested contribution is $3

An anthology entitled en(compass) has been published by Yuganta Press, with an introduction by Former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins who says that Poetry Caravan is “doing literary missionary work by bringing poetry into the lives of the often alienated.” The book is a collection of poems from 32 poets who have participated in the caravan, including Patricia Smith, Margo Stever, Pramila Venkateswaran, and Ralph Nazareth, as well as a selection of poetry from workshop participants. Usha Akella and other poets who volunteer with the Caravan and are included in the anthology will read followed by an open mike.

HVWC 7/7/05, Thurs 7:30pm The Hudson Valley Writers' Center , 300 Riverside Drive, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Readings by poets Emily Fragos and Hermine Meinhard. (suggested donation - $5 ($3 for HVWC members)

Per the website www.writerscenter.,org:

Emily Fragos and Hermine Meinhard, both of NYC, have stand-outs in the 2004 crop of first poetry books.

In her Boston Review piece on Fragos’s Little Savage (Grove Press), Marie Ponsot says, “Her poems take us by surprise….We are enlarged by her resonant verbal imagination.” Kathleen Rooney says, “The poems … are so smooth and radiant with thought that one has the sense that they were tumbled around in the mind of the poet until completely polished.” Fragos’s work has appeared in dozens of publications including The Best American Poetry 1998, and she received the David Craig Austin Poetry Prize. She is also the editor of an anthology of cat poems, The Great Cat (Random House, 2005).

Meinhard’s Bright Turquoise Umbrella (Tupelo Press) was a finalist for Poetry Society of America’s 2005 Norma Farber First Book Award. She was a finalist for the PSA’s 2004 Robert H. Winner Memorial Award, the 1993 winner of the Sue Saniel Elkind Poetry Award, and a Pushcart Prize nominee. Since 2000 she has been poetry editor of the literary journal 3rd bed. Brooks Haxton comments: “Amazed and hurt, joking in fear, loving and experienced, all at once, she is one of those few artists (Kafka and Fra Angelico come to mind) whose simplicity and skill deliver the refreshment of a deeper tenderness toward being.”

All readings include a question & answer period and a reception with books by the author(s) for sale.

Suggested Donation: $5 ($3 for HVWC members and those under age 18)

ANDALUSIAN MUSIC FESTIVAL
Sun, Nov 13, 2pm (show starts at 3pm)
Andalusia. The word evokes a romantic era of poetry and song, the gentle
splash of fountains in serene courtyards richly tiled and filled with tall, slender arches—the world, in short, of medieval southern Spain, where Muslims, Christians, and Jews once lived together in harmony. This bygone place and time comes alive again on the banks of the Hudson River during the first two weeks of November 2005, when Tarrytown and its
environs will be the site of several cultural events, from poetry readings and art exhibits to a grand musical extravaganza. At the Music Hall, four outstanding groups will bring their diverse sounds to the stage: Jonathan “Juanito” Pascual, “one of the hottest flamenco guitarists to emerge in recent years,” (National Public Radio) according to National Public Radio, will perform the passionate, soul-stirring music of traditional Spain, accompanied by a flamenco dancer, a singer, and a
percussionist. The Sharq Arabic Music Ensemble, led by Karim Nagi Mohammed, will perform traditional Arab-Andalusian music, as it was heard for hundreds of years in royal courts and concert halls. Sharq is known for its authentic high-energy sound. Judith R. Cohen, the well-known Canadian singer and ethnomusicologist, will perform traditional Sephardic music, accompanied by her daughter Tamar, who sings and plays percussion. Lastly, Boston Camerata soloists Joel Cohen and Anne Azema will bring the group’s richly colored palette of sound to a lecture-recital, accompanied by Sharq’s Karim Mohammed. The internationally famous Boston Camerata is noted for its alchemic blend of medieval Jewish-Christian-Muslim music.
Tickets: $25, $20

Westchester Writers Roundtable 11/15/05, Tues, 6:30pm. Monthly meetings (every third Tuesday) of writers (all genres) to share ideas, discuss projects, listen to speakers and ask questions, and to critque writings). Here is the invitation sent on 10/25/05 about the upcoming 11/15/05 meeting:October 25, 2005 - 10:45pm.

Greetings Westchester Writers Roundtable Members and Friends:

Our next meeting of the Westchester Writers Roundtable, which will be conducted by Stan Sokol, will be held on Tuesday, November 15, 6: 30 p.m. at the Westchester Arts Council, 31 Mamaroneck Avenue (corner Martine), White Plains on the 3rd floor.

Wally Wood, this month’s speaker, has been a successful freelance writer during an extensive career. He has published works frequently as a ghost writer and provided help in shaping the book’s structure, writing a proposal for it, and ultimately, selling it to an appropriate publisher. In recounting his life as a freelance writer, he will discuss how to go about getting a book published, in particular, works of nonfiction. Last year, Mr. Wood published a book in his own name entitled "The Relationship Edge In Business" (John Wiley & Sons).

Mr. Wood will also share an interesting career sidelight -- his work teaching creative writing to prisoners in a state prison. Presently, he has a novel-in-works.

As mentioned in Ruth Handel’s excellent report on last month’s meeting, we decided to defer the critique of excerpts from a novel by Jack Jaffe entitled "Letters to My Brother – the Bridge Is Love" to the November meeting. To obtain a copy please call Jack (718) 547-3503 or Lee at (914) 771-6377.

Additionally, this month we will critique the poetry of Ruth Handel. If you need Ruth's poems, please contact her by email at RuthHandel@earthlink.net.

Time permitting, we will ask members to comment on the Question of the month: "As a person and as a writer, what were some of the books and authors that influenced you the most?" Since we hope to provide ample time for our speaker during the first part of the meeting and to the critiques in the last half, the program will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Best regards,
The Roundtable Steering Committee

  Excerpts from article written about Catherin Wolf - COUNTY LINES; A Thing or Two to Say Before Dying

By Marek Fuchs, Published: August 28, 2005

CATHERINE WOLF, who has spent her career helping I.B.M. develop technologies that help the disabled, can no longer talk or move anything much more than her left toes and parts of her face. She breathes with the aid of a ventilator.

Under a kinder fate, Dr. Wolf, a 58-year-old Katonah resident with a Ph.D. in psychology from Brown, would still be running 10-K races, cooking and taking dance classes with her daughters and -- as important -- standing out in public somewhere voicing opinions on the many issues of the day.

Instead she sits writing poems -- snarky, hopeful, outraged poems. She writes them one highlighted letter at a time, with a specially outfitted computer, using the slightest of head movements to activate the switch that chooses each one. (The machine was not one she helped develop while at I.B.M.; she says she has been inundating the developer with suggestions for
improvement.)

Every disease is a cruelty, but amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (A.L.S.) holds its own special place. It is often called Lou Gehrig's disease, for the New York Yankee who died because of it in 1941. In the seven decades since then, through a period of remarkable medical advances on almost every front, scientists are basically no closer to finding a cure, or even a cause.

The mind of the victim remains wholly functional while everything else closes itself down with a relentless efficiency. The failure originates with the motor neurons, which normally carry signals from the brain telling muscles what to do. As the neurological system deteriorates, the body becomes increasingly immobile, until that point when the brain stops telling the lungs to breathe and the patient suffocates. This usually happens within about five years of diagnosis, with the brain as witness to the body's
self-destruction.

''Other than A.L.S.,'' said Dr. Wolf, speaking via e-mail messages, ''I am in perfect health.''

It was at a modern dance class in 1996 that she first felt stiffness in her left foot. Then, while running, she felt pain in her left calf. The diagnosis came in 1997, but she wouldn't believe it. Instead, clinging to hope, she sat determinedly undergoing intravenous treatments for Lyme disease.

As her universe imploded, Dr. Wolf had every excuse for turning inward. But, an ever-staunch liberal who describes herself as a child of the 1960's, she found reasons to keep looking outward as well. The political climate she beheld was disturbing, to put it mildly.

She started by writing birthday poems for friends like Diane Juster, her college roommate. Soon she branched out into political poetry and verse about A.L.S.

She has attended local poetry slams, others reading her work while she sat in her wheelchair. Now, eight years after diagnosis, she has reached a late stage that involves violent coughing fits. So she sends her Ogden Nash-like poems to a long list of friends -- whom she says she hopes to touch, if only in some small way. A recent verse on the Bush administration's United
Nations appointment, titled ''John Wayne Bolton'': (email Frank Sisco at ideasmoney@aol.com for the verse) or contact Catherin Wolf.
