Culture Shock

Northern Lights

Here are two really awesome reasons to spend the weekend in Santa Fe. First, the Santa Fe Writers Workshop takes over the College of Santa Fe campus (1600 St. Michael’s Drive) for a few days. The workshop, which costs $490, gives budding writers of the fiction, poetry and nonfiction genres a chance to hone their skills with some of New Mexico’s best. Mark Behr, Michael McGarrity and Bill deBuys are just a few of the big names who want to help you get writing from Thursday, July 8, to Sunday, July 11. Find out how to register at csf.edu/summer_workshops/writers. Once the sessions are over, you can hit up the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, the biggest market of its kind anywhere. Vendors from around the world gather at on Museum Hill’s Milner Plaza (on Camino Lejo) to offer up one-of-a-kind artistic wares. If you’re worried someone else will get the really good stuff, there’s an early bird market Saturday, July 10, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. that’ll cost you $50. Otherwise, head up from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 10, for only $10 if you buy tickets in advance or $15 for those who wait and get ’em at the door; or Sunday, July 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for only $5. Get tickets at folkartmarket.org.

War Games

With Gen. David Petraeus in the spotlight again, taking over the war effort in Afghanistan this time around, war is back in the collective conscious. What better time to enjoy a little timely theater that’s insightful and fun? Aux Dog Theatre (3011 Monte Vista NE) offers Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them, a play in which a young woman tries to figure out if her beloved hubby is really a terrorist or just a little crazy. Playwright Christopher Durang’s 2009 black comedy pokes fun at stereotypes and brings terrorism into the American home. Torture runs through Sunday, July 25, with shows at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $12 to $16 through auxdog.org or 254-7716.

Judge a Book by Its Cover

Download as many PDFs as you want, your iPad or Kindle will never be able to compete with a handmade art book. See, books aren’t just to be read, they’re to be handled, their paper felt under fingertips, the wooden smell that lingers deeply inhaled. Literature is art, but art isn’t always literature. Bookmaker Franni Filzen knows this and, in a free class, teaches artists and bibliophiles alike how to create accordion books, stitched pamphlets and pretty much everything else that can be made with paper and a few crafty materials. The Art Book Workshop takes place at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE) at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 13.
