WILLIAM MATSON AND THE CRAZY HORSE FAMILY: EVENINGS WITH AUTHORS

Join William Matson and Crazy Horse family elder Floyd Clown, Sr. for an inside look into the life of famed Lakota war leader, Crazy Horse. In partnership with Matson, the Edward Clown family, nearest living relatives to Crazy Horse, has recorded the family tales and memories told to them about their famous grandfather. In many ways, the oral history differs from what has become the widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. Until now, their story had not been told outside the family for over a century because the government had been hunting them since Crazy Horse was assassinated in 1877. This will be Matson and the Clown family’s landmark 265th appearance as they travel across the United States and Europe.

SCOTT WOODS: EVENINGS WITH AUTHORS

In Urban Contemporary History Month: Poems, Scott Woods interrogates identity and society, exposing the frequently imposed and false duality of 21st century Black life by a world that prefers its art and people in neat boxes. His poems navigate police abuse, idol worship, the definition of Black culture, and the importance of the blues—chipping away at our acceptance of American life as we know it. The collection includes meditations on juke joint culture, art as a communal projection, and a cento comprised of the first lines of Stephen King stories. Scott Woods is a Columbus Foundation Spirit of Columbus Award recipient and was named the first-ever “Face of Columbus” by Columbus Alive.

DEIRDRE BAIR: EVENINGS WITH AUTHORS

National Book Award-winning biographer Deirdre Bair spent 15 remarkable years in Paris with Samuel Beckett and Simone de Beauvoir. In 1971, Bair secured access to Nobel Prize-winning author Samuel Beckett. Seven years of intimate conversations resulted in Samuel Beckett: A Biography, which won the National Book Award. Bair's next subject was Simone de Beauvoir. The catch? De Beauvoir and Beckett despised each other. Bair hid out in the back rooms of Paris cafés as she worked with the difficult de Beauvior to create another groundbreaking biography. Bair’s new book, Parisian Lives, revisits these experiences with never-before-told anecdotes and details that were impossible to publish at the time.

ALAN HLAD: EVENINGS WITH AUTHORS

Alan Hlad’s novel, The Long Flight Home, is a fictional tale about the role of British homing pigeons during WWII. It is September 1940, and as German bombs fall on Britain, fears grow of an impending invasion. Through the National Pigeon Service, Susan Shepherd and Ollie Evans are given a covert mission—to air-drop hundreds of homing pigeons in German-occupied France. Many will not survive. Those that return to England can convey crucial information on German troop movements—and help reclaim the skies from the Luftwaffe. When Ollie’s plane is downed behind enemy lines, Susan’s homing pigeon Duchess relays messages between them as war rages on—and proving, at last, that hope is never truly lost.
