Culture Shock

Prolific local artist Rachel Allen recently passed away, but neither Allen nor her art will be forgotten by her admirers and friends anytime soon. She will be missed. A memorial exhibit of her attractively eccentric work opens this Friday, Nov. 5, at the New Grounds Print Workshop (3812 Central SE) with a reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. during which a silent auction of Allen's art will be held. All proceeds will go towards a printmaking scholarship. The exhibit, called Open Your Heart, will also include work by other members of the workshop. The show runs through Nov. 27. 268-8952.

Book Review

Boy Wonder

How We Are Hungry

In the past decade, Dave Eggers has created two literary journals, a nonprofit writing center, a publishing company and a daily humor website, not to mention a pirate supply storefront in San Francisco—a Dickensian swirl of activity which might explain why some people have forgotten Dave Eggers is also a writer.

Book Review


Restless Tribes

Stephen Ausherman used to write for the Alibi before I came to work here. I don't think I've ever met him face to face, but I remember his articles well. He's a very good writer. One particularly memorable Ausherman feature ran back in the late '90s and recounted his experiences working with a medical aid organization in Iraq. It was one of the best things I've ever read in this paper.
