Poet Paul Zarzyski Wows ‘Em at Logos

November 13, 2014

If you missed last night’s poetry reading by Paul Zarzyski,  you missed a heck of a lot of fun – and how often can one say that for a Tuesday night?  Pie-rotechnics by Paul and four different kinds of pie by Susan made the evening worthwhile for one and all.

But, don’t despair!  January 22nd will bring more “Z” poets, when  Stanley Zumbiel and Mary Zeppa read that Thursday at 7:30.  Put it on the calendar now, so you won’t forget!

ConversationAdvanced non-native speakers of French gather every second Wednesday of the month from 7:30 to 8:30 pm at Logos Books, 513 Second Street for lively discussions on various topics in French.

Comment trouvez-vous l’art contemporain, et l’intégration de tel art dans une métropole?  Le nouveau musée d’art contemporain conçu  par l’architecte Americain-Canadien Frank Gehry, et réalisé par la Fondation Louis Vuitton, est un bel exemple d’un projet civile qui n’est peut-être pas au goût de tout le monde.  Comme le Centre Pompidou des années 70, il aura ses admirateurs et détracteurs.

 Voici quelques clips qui vous présenteront le musée.

Qu’en pensez-vous?  Est-ce que la dépense d’une telle somme d’argent puisse se justifier quand il a tant de misère dans le monde.  Et l’esthétique?  Devrait-on demander une vote des citoyens avant d’installer un si grand bâtiment dans une espace publique?  A vous de venir avec beaucoup de points de vue pour que l’on puisse en discuter, mercredi le 12 novembre à 19H30!
