Arnold Adoff was born and raised in New York City. He studied history and contemporary political science at City College and Columbia University and then ran from the groves of academe to the jazz clubs of the village where he eventually became the “manager” of the extraordinary bassist and composer, Charles Mingus. Adoff married the African American novelist and folklorist, Virginia Hamilton, who brought him to Yellow Springs in 1969. Since 1968, Adoff has published over forty books for young readers and their older allies, including anthologies of African American literature and illustrated picture books. Adoff describes his poetry as “shaped colloquial speech” and will be reading from his latest award-winning collection Roots and Blues: A Celebration. Please join us for this rare opportunity to engage with Adoff about his craft and the process of “living and writing outside the lines.”

In a five-day workshop, Sept 23-27, Antioch College students and community wind power enthusiasts will learn how to make a relatively quiet and durable 10 feet diameter wind turbine from scratch. This design is ideal for those who are interested in building their own wind power systems from scratch for fun, to save money, or for generating power in the developing world. The instructor of the course is Dan Bartmann, co-author of <em>Homebrew Wind Power: A hands-on guide to harnessing the wind</em> (Buckville Publications, 2009).
