‘Station Eleven,’ author to appear, Literary Death Match set
Odessa Arts continues the NEA Big Read: ArtPocalypse with two anchor events this week.
At 7 p.m. Thursday, “Station Eleven,” author Emily St. John will appear at the Globe Theater at Odessa College in conversation with Odessa Arts Executive Director Randy Ham.
The event is free and open to the public, and will include an audience Q&A and a book signing.
ArtPocalypse will continue on Friday when the Literary Death Match makes its fourth appearance in the Basin.
Host Adrian Zuniga will present four authors from Texas reading seven minutes of original work. Each author will be scored by a panel of three judges: author and Odessa native Jeramey Kraatz, Writer’s League of Texas Executive Director Becka Oliver and Midland County Public Library Director John Trischitti III.
Only one can claim the Literary Death Match crown. In addition, this year Typewriter Rodeo will be added to the festivities.
This event is ticketed, and can be purchased at wagnernoel.com (use discount code: BIGREAD for $5 off). Participants will be given a Cultural Passport which will include a schedule of events, a reader’s guide and information about the program. Passports will be stamped by each entity as they attend events.
Passports can be redeemed for ArtPocalypse swag (5 stamps = ArtPocalypse poster, 10 stamps = T-shirt). Participants who attend 20 or more events can redeem their passport to be entered into a drawing for a trip for two to NYC (airfare and hotel).
