KALA Performance Space presents a new and original monthly series and marks its opening after the one year pandemic performance venues closure. First Person: authors talk is an hour of lively discussion on the Kala stage, with local authors/writers and welcomes interview host Heather Hirschi. The program will feature writers perspectives on everything writing--from craft to the zone of focused fun. Audience Q&A and a few surprises are part of the festivities!|
Host Heather Hirschi is a writer and educator transplanted from Salt Lake City, where she taught writing at the University of Utah for 25 years, most recently as an assistant professor. Hirshis poetry, fiction, and essays have appeared in journals including Black Warrior Review and Painted Bride Quarterly, and publications like HipFish Monthly, The West View, and Utah Business. Salt Lake Acting Company produced her short play, A Beautiful Child and her textbook, Creative Writing: The Easy Way, was published by Barrons in 2004. Hirschi was an editor for Salt Flats Annual and Quarterly West and What There is: The Crossroads Anthology, a collection of Southwestern writing and art forwarded by Terry Tempest Williams.
Premier First Person guest is author Cliff Taylor. His book, The Memory of Souls, is Cliffs story of stumbling into his peoples ways...shedding the bindings of trauma and getting his soul back; it is the story of a young Ponca walking with the little people on a journey of cultural recovery/regeneration and remembrance. Author Clark Roth says Cliffs rare genius is to make a Fellini film and a hallelujah chorus of something that youd normally only see out the corner of your eye. Copies of The Memory of Souls will be available for purchase at the event.
