How many Egyptians does it take to build a pyramid? None, because the aliens did it! Author Richard Smith will be discussing his new book The Moor, The Mason And The Alien: A Call To Action at the North Domingo Baca Multigenerational Center. As a hopeful key for a spiritual revolution, Smith’s book covers a wide range of topics like economics, supernatural activity and current affairs. If you want to know more about how extraterrestrials have affected history as we know it, you can’t miss this. This is hosted by the local nonprofit NM UFO and Paranormal Forum which has monthly meetings centered on all things paranormal. Keep your eyes on the skies.

The 2016 Women of the World Poetry Slam happens next month in Brooklyn. Why not help send some of the finest poets in ABQ to show those snobby East Coast hacks what it's like. Mercedez Holtry and Eva Crispin bring us poetry by donation at Bookworks on Thursday to raise funds for the trip. Performers include former National Poetry Slam team member Eva Crispin, poetry slam organizer and competitor Katrina Guarascio, former WOWPS rep Brooke Von Blomberg and WOWPS and National Poetry Slam champion Jessica Helen Lopez. There's a suggested donation of $5, but I highly doubt anyone will be sad if you bring more. (Joshua Lee)BookworksBurque Women of the World Fundraiser
- Wanted: Your Best Photographs
Shutterbugs gather up your best pieces and pick some to submit for hanging in the new Bernalillo County headquarters when the gov-peeps move to Alvarado Square, happening now until Monday, August 31. The selected photographs will be printed in a large scale and format. They will be used to create a welcoming environment for county customers, county employees and the general public. Some will be used on the windows of the new Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office suite. The photographs should represent the history and character of Bernalillo County and its people, places, landscapes and unique events in our county. There are some big bucks involved as chosen photographers will receive $1,500, with a limit of one photograph per artist. The chosen photos will become part of the public art program’s permanent collection. There is no fee or age limit required to submit. For more information, visit bernco.gov/community-services/current-call-for-entries.aspx. Ends August 31. (Carolyn Carlson)
