Catch Jill Bialosky at Ohioana Book Festival on Saturday, April 23rd, where you can talk to her about her four poetry collections, three novels, and a memoir: History of a Suicide.
Writer John Scalzi is an Ohio resident and the author of several award-winning science fiction novels.
One of his upcoming projects falls under the Young Adult banner, a new genre for the writer.
Though writing is a craft, Scalzi emphasizes the need for a business mentality when pursuing a career as a writer. Scalzi may be new to Young Adult fiction, but his other writing has garnered significant praise. Here he is mainly referring to the difficulty of genre writers, such as those who write science fiction, mystery, or romance, for breaking through and gaining mainstream critical praise. John Scalzi will be a featured guest at the Ohioana Book Festival on Saturday, April 23rd at the Columbus Sheraton Hotel. This past December, local graphic artists Dara Naraghi and Brent Bowman released Persia Blues Volume 2: Love and War on independent publisher NBM.
DN: I wouldn’t say directly, but a lot of them are composites of either my experiences with my parents, my cousins, or friends that I know. AR: How fully realized was your idea for the whole trilogy going into that first book and has it changed at all since that time? It’s not often that trees, orchards, and apples find themselves at the center of a conflict, but that is exactly the case with Tracy Chevalier’s newest novel, At the Edge of the Orchard.
Chevalier regularly places historical figures into her fiction pieces, believing that it adds a new and believable element to her stories. Appleseed, escaping from children’s songs, is more of an actual human being instead of a mythical character.
Just as historical figures can add weight to a story, Chevalier believes in truly knowing her settings. Tracy Chevalier is the author of eight novels, including Girl With a Pearl Earring, which was an international bestseller and adapted into a major motion picture.
Appleseed, escaping from children's songs, is more of an actual human being instead of a mythical character.
Growing up on a healthy dose of Chet Baker, Paul Simon, and Willie Nelson, Myles found inspiration everywhere. One of his best folk known songs, “When It Comes My Turn,” was nominated for a heap of awards.
Though he is best known for his folk music, Myles is not afraid of stepping well outside of the genre.
The Guardian touted David Myles as “one of Atlantic Canada’s most highly regarded singer-songwriters.” His music has won several accolades, including the coveted Juno award given to top Canadian music.
Coconut Cowboy is the 19th installment of New York Times Bestseller Tim Dorsey’s serial killer series, but don’t let that genre label fool you. Dorsey, an adamant believer in extensive book tours, enjoys taking in the specifics of small towns he discovers in his travels. Though his books consistently sell, Dorsey has branched out his brand into other fields, including hot sauce. Tim Dorsey will be at the Bexley Library on March 1st promoting Coconut Cowboy, which is now available at bookstores nationwide. Career politicians, backroom deals, and Congressional contention are not exclusive to today’s political landscape. Listen in to hear Bordewich disclose the little-known controversies of a brand new government and draw parallels to today’s tumultuous climate.
For Trent Wagler and The Steel Wheels, “Winter is Coming” and it doesn’t have anything to do with Game of Thrones. Listen to our interview and then catch them in town on Friday, February 12 with Six String Concerts.
The band’s own curated Red Wing Roots Music Festival marks its fourth anniversary this year, boasting a lineup with bigger names like Shovels & Rope. After being gifted 30 rolls of the now discontinued Kodachrome film, photographer Stephen Takacs set out to capture images of businesses impacted by the digital photo transition. Stephen Takacs has lectured at The Ohio State University and is a member of the interdisciplinary STEAM Factory. During the interview, we discussed his picture of blacksmith Adlai Stine and herbalist Scott A. Melanie Benjamin will appear in Columbus with Thurber House on Wednesday, January 27, 2016.


Many people think of Truman Capote as the campy talk show guest or the inspiration for the character of Dill in To Kill a Mockingbird. April 24A Report from the Prairie Star District Conference by Luke Markve, Richard Dean and Marie Smith. Special guest author interviewer Lucy A Snyder (Craft fans--both of you--will remember Lucy's great 2015 Halloween story) fans the flames of Craft listenership with this interview with Joe. In return, I assured him that Ohio is less frequently incarcerating our literary superstars. Before his May 13 appearance with Six String Concert series he will play in Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Sheboygan, WI. I talked with them earlier this year about their music, their songwriting, and how their background consciously (and unconsciously) influences them. My heart screams for more But my head's to blame - -Stranger In Your Arms by Honey and Blue - Honey and Blue, made up of Stephanie Amber and Adam Darling, is a rising local band. The Ohio native’s latest collection, The Players, uses the baseball diamond as a landscape for thoughts on motherhood, gender roles, and the legacies of family. Her son played baseball competitively throughout his childhood and was recruited to play at the college level. The story interweaves ancient Persian mythology with the story of young Minoo Shirazi coming to The Ohio State University for graduate school. Columbus has a great arts scene in general, but there’s a really big comics community here. You’ve got the beginning and the end, but you have to get there somehow and still make it interesting. The book follows the saga of the Goodenough family in 19th century America from a northwest Ohio orchard to Gold Rush Era California. Chevalier will read and discuss her novel at the Thurber House on Monday, March 21st. Chevalier keeps his strange clothing and vegetarianism, but her Appleseed is a sharp businessman. In writing the book, Chevalier traveled to Calaveras Grove in California to put herself in the same landscape the Goodenough family would have experienced.
Though he played trumpet through his adolescence, he found his love for singing in an unexpected place: a Chet Baker cassette tape.
The track is one of his earliest written tunes and was recently re-recorded in Canada for his newest compilation, So Far.
In 2008, he collaborated with Canadian rapper Classified to create “Inner Ninja.” The song, fusing folk-fueled hooks with hip-hop flow, went quadruple platinum in Canada and has become a live staple for Myles on tour. The geographic setting of the novels, always in Florida, provides natural inspiration for Dorsey.
These hidden treasures often make it into the book, like when Serge and a friend take a detour in Greenville to visit Ray Charles’ childhood home and a statue in the town square.
During a book fair, Dorsey made promotional t-shirts with fake hot sauce bottles printed on the back.
Bordewich is the author of seven non-fiction books and has contributed to the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and more.
The band’s most recent album, Leave Some Things Behind, was released in April of 2015 and focuses on the classical idea of an odyssey.
After travelling as a touring band for years, the band wanted to bring some of those experiences home to their own community. His cross-country journey started in Portland and ended in Parsons, KS at the last space available to process the Kodachrome film.
Listen to the interview to hear about the bittersweet process of working with a defunct medium and the change inherent in photography and visit his website. Samantha Tucker, a humorist and essayist enrolled in Ohio State’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program, has the answer.
She has worked as a theatre and culture critic with other publications, including Show Business Weekly and Springs Magazine. Melanie Benjamin wanted to know more about the author in his prime, before his high society tell-all book ruined his social standing in New York.
If you want to do something significant, you must do significant work.A Those who do the minimum a€” who continually think of how to contribute as little as possible in any given situation a€” always remain minimal in their impact on the world around them. My favorite thing about music is that it happens in the air and that it is intangible,” Mulvey told me during our talk.

Check out their YouTube channel and catch them in town at Natalie’s Coal Fired Grill. Jill Bialosky will be a featured guest at the Ohioana Book Festival on Saturday April 23rd. At the Edge of the Orchard includes characters inspired by real people like Johnny Appleseed and William Lobb. Similarly with Lobb, an English naturalist and botanist, who spent time in California in the 19th century and collected and sent saplings to an English nursery that focused on exotic plants and trees. Calaveras Grove is the home of giant sequoias, the incredibly wide trees whose 30-foot diameter trunks are famously hollowed out to allow cars to pass underneath.
Known as an “acoustic guitar crooner,” Myles does not let any label restrict him, as he explained in his Craft interview. He got his hands on acoustic guitar, learned some three chord songs, and began looking at music in a more serious light.
After several fans asked how to purchase the hot sauce, Dorsey decided to make the spicy condiment a reality. Bordewich would be quick to point out, “the great American tradition of political trench warfare” was just as prevalent early years of the United States. Very few people had confidence that this new government created by the government would work.” The book details the country’s formative years truly as “an experiment,” with President Washington and Congress simultaneously figuring out their respective roles. Regularly leaving and returning home as a touring band typically does, the band found themselves constantly in transit. In her first collection of essays, The American Dream Starts Here, Tucker recalls visiting her first spa, being raised in America with a Korean sense of modesty, and teaching English in Korea. Check out the interview to hear about Tucker’s humor writing, Tinder, and a short story from her upcoming collection. Her research resulted in The Swans of Fifth Avenue, another of her trademark historical fictions in the vein of The Aviator’s Wife and Alice I Have Been.

Tony and Tom are wonderful teachers and I consistently see improvements in my riding and in my horse.


Ifa person wants to be successful or impacting in life, he must be willing to do whatever is necessary to accomplish the task that he has been asked to perform.A Are you the kind of worker who is willing to do whatever is necessary to finish a jobA the way it ought to be done? Check out the full interview for information about The Players, the Ohioana Book Festival, and more.
The title itself is a bit of a play on words; it refers to the players on a team, as well as the central characters of a family dynamic. Everybody [in Panel] had their own projects that they worked on, but we would also collaborate with each other and publish little comic anthologies twice a year.
Chevalier found herself marveled at the smaller, more intimate details that could only be picked up on if actually present in the grove.
The hot sauce, each bottle individually signed by Dorsey himself, is now available in three flavors. Bordewich’s new book, The First Congress: How James Madison, George Washington, and a Group of Extraordinary Men Invented the Government, discusses, well, exactly what the title suggests as it takes a gritty look at the founding fathers. They left friends and family back home while they went on cross-country adventures, soaking in innumerable experiences. His other project, titled “Travelling Picture Show,” utilizes a homemade, life-size camera obscura that travels around the country. Throughout, she tackles difficult subjects like the death of her brother in Iraq, finding humor in even the darkest places. Tucker is submitting the final edits on The American Dream Starts Here for review in the coming months. Listen in to learn about the scandal that essentially ended Capote’s literary career.
Do you see yourself as a vital member of the team whose maximum cooperation is needed and valued? For the most part, every member of the group had worked with somebody else, except for the two of us.
From observing the ways people looked at the trees to the decades-old piles of pine needles, Chevalier captured the essence of what it’s like to experience a location in person.
Though it was intended to resonate with younger people, Myles has found that it holds a special place for those closer to his parents’ age, or on the verge of a different life chapter: retirement.
Feeling almost like in-orbit astronauts looking back at their far-away blue marble, they captured the conflicting feeling of simultaneous departure and arrival over the course of an album.
Tucker comes from a background of writing for performance, and that dynamic is omnipresent in her writing.
Or do you just put in the minimum that is required for you to get your paycheck?A As Paul continues to tell us about his life experiences in Second Corinthians 11:27, he lets us know that he was willing to do very hard work.
She advocates diversity of voice in humor writing, labeling her writing as so funny it will give you a kidney stone, as happened to one of her professors.
For him, there was no clock to punch with his time card, nor any employeea€™s manual to specify how many days of vacation he got off each year.
A Winter Hill makes it possible to balance riding with a busy schedule because I know that my horse is being meticulously cared for on the days I cana€™t make it to the barn.
His identity and purpose for living was wrapped up in the life assignment God had given him. Because of this, every minute he lived and breathed was devoted to fulfilling his divine assignment.
It often pictured a farmer who work sin the field, enduring the extreme temperatures of the afternoon sunshine.
Although the temperatures are hard to endure, he strains, struggles, and toils toA push that plow through the hardened ground.
This effort requires his total concentration and devotion.A No laziness can be allowed if that field is going to be plowed. Effective ministryA requires a person to work long hours,to be focused, to crucify his flesh, and to do whatever is necessaryA to see that Goda€™s Kingdom is furthered. The minister must fight off the devila€™s attacks, deal withA peoplea€™s instability, deliberately decide not to be hurt or wounded by those who disappoint him, andA spend enough time with God to always have a fresh word from Heaven. Let me tell you from personalA experience, friend a€”to do all this effectively demands a ministera€™s entire life. The word mochthos is the picture of a person who has worked so hard that he is about to collapse. He is exhausted from physical labor.A You could say that this person is physically worn out because he has over done it. His jobA demanded a level of physical commitment that was beyond what is considered normal.
But the jobA neededto be done, so he kept pushing, pushing, and pushing himself further and further. Paula€™s entireA life was consumed with and committed to fulfilling what God called him to do. This is the picture of anindividual who is dog-tired and drained and who feels like his physical strength is nearly used up. Even physical weariness wasA not a strong enough impediment to stop this man of God.A It is just a fact that it takes hard work to do anything that is going to be successful.
Those who try to avoid going the extra milein doing their work with excellence will never reach the pinnacle of success.A Do you want to be super-successful in life? If you continually put in only the minimum amount of work and effort that is necessary, youa€™ll produce nothing more than the minimum with your life.
In order to achieve somethingspectacular,you have to do something spectacular and unique to make it happen.A I urge you today to take a good look at your work habits and to evaluate what kind of worker you are. And if I give 100 percent of myself to my place of employment, I knowA I can help my employer make a better profit and become more efficient. Please forgive meA for taking a salary for work that hasna€™t been done with a full commitment to excellence.A Jesus, I want to change in this area of my life. I am so faithful at the tasks given to me that my employerA or supervisor trusts me completely when I am assigned a new task. Because I work with allA my heart, I bring blessing to my place of employment and to my employer.
If you were the boss, would you consider a worker like you to be an asset whoA can help take the company to a higher level of success?
