Book Club @ Wayne Public Library

Our Adult Book Club is reading “Goodnight, Nebraska” by Tom McNeal this month.- At the age of 17, Randall Hunsacker shoots his mother’s boyfriend, steals a car and comes close to killing himself. His second chance lies in a small Nebraska farm town, where the landmarks include McKibben’s Mobil Station, Frmka’s Superette, and a sign that says The Wages of Sin is Hell. This is Goodnight, a place so ingrown and provincial that Randall calls it “Sludgeville”-until he starts thinking of it as home. In this pitch-perfect novel, Tom McNeal
explores the currents of hope, passion, and cruelty beneath the surface of the American heartland. In Randall, McNeal creates an outcast whose redemption lies in Goodnight, a strange, small, but ultimately embracing community where Randall will inspire fear and adulation, win the love of a beautiful girl and nearly throw it all away. Join the discussion Tuesday, September 24th at 6:30 PM at the Senior Center.

“Frauenliebe und -leben: Gendered Singing in Song” at Wayne State College

If a set of poems reflecting a women’s perspective is authored by man, then composed into song by another man, is the perspective maintained? Should a female vocalist or a male vocalist sing the songs? Dr. Steven Soebbing explores the issue during a Guest Lecture Recital, Monday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in Ley Theatre at Wayne State College. Frauenliebe und -leben: Gendered Singing in Song examines the history of gender specificity in song. The poems, by German poet Adelbert von Chamisso, express a woman’s love from courtship through marriage and widowhood. Composer Robert Schumann set the poems to music in 1840. Soebbing, a bass-baritone, is accompanied by WSC accompanist Shelly Armstrong. He earned a doctor of musical arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and is currently a faculty member at John Wood Community College in Quincy, IL. This performance is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the WSC Music Department at 402-375-7359.
