Local Writer Series: Deanna Newsom

Antioch College is thrilled to announce the second installment of our Local Writer Series! We will be welcoming writers from all over the Miami Valley to come and talk about writing and share their work. 

For our second event in this series, we'll welcome Deanna Newsom on Wednesday, March 12, at 7:00 p.m. at the Coretta Scott King Center. The event is FREE and open to the public.

After a childhood literary diet of Reader’s Digest jokes and Sweet Valley High romances, Deanna read Roald Dahl’s "The BFG" with her sons and was never the same again. Her young adult novel "The Tunnel Jumper"s follows two brothers as they travel from their grandpa’s run-down pet shop to the wilderness of Cameroon, Costa Rica, and Scotland, using a secret power of endangered species to solve the mystery of what happened to their missing parents.

Spanish Language Dinner and Film, "Stand and Deliver"

Dinner in North Hall with Spanish-speaking guests followed by "Stand and Deliver" by Ramon Hernandez, 1988. Edward James Olmos portrays the real-life Jaime Escalante, a no-nonsense mathematic teacher in a tough East LA high school. Handed a classroom full of "losers" and "unteachables," Escalante is determined to turn his young charges' lives around. Drawing from his own cultural heritage, Escalante forms a bond with his largely Hispanic student body, evoking the names of famous Spaniards and Latin Americans whose great accomplishments were predicated on their ability to learn. The students gradually come to realize that the only way they'll escape their own poverty-stricken barrio is to improve themselves intellectually. As a result, the class' academic achievements soar dramatically – too dramatically for the Educational Testing Service, which is convinced that the class' high test scores are the results of cheating. The triumphant exoneration of Escalante's students provides Stand and Deliver with its rousingly upbeat conclusion. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

"Transgender Seeking…"

The Antioch College performance program is pleased to announce it will be hosting Transgender Seeking…, a solo performance by artist Sunny Drake on Friday, February 21, at 7:00 p.m. in the Glen Helen Auditorium.  

Drake, an award-winning Australian queer and transgender theater maker, performer and educator will explore queer relationships in his performance. He defines queer relationships as: “The space between our big political visions and our messy lives in trying to live up to them.”

Recently featured in Gscene Gay Magazine, writer Eric Page wrote, “Drake is one of those rare provocative performers who are uber-smart but ultra cozy at heart… one of the most interesting and touching performances I’ve seen in a while.”

Based in Toronto, Drake has toured his work extensively in Canada, Europe and the United States. He recently won the SummerWorks RBC Professional Artist Award (Canada's biggest juried theater festival), and was honored by NOW Magazine (Toronto) for “Outstanding Performance” and “Outstanding Design.”

Transgender Seeking… has been generously supported by Antioch College’s Community Council, and is free and open to the public. 

LOCATION: Glen Helen Auditorium
