Poet Comes to SPU
CHANGE OF DATE: Canadian poet John Terpstra will read from his poetry and prose on November 30 at 7:30 PM in the Seattle Pacific University Art Center Gallery as part of his West-Coast book tour with Gaspereau Press. His spare, lyrical new release, The Boys, or Waiting for the Electrician's Daughter, is an unsentimental prose elegy for his wife's three brothers, each of whom suffered from muscular dystrophy and died in his early twenties (an excerpt appears in Image #47). Author of the poetry collections The Church Not Made with Hands and Disarmament, Terpstra has been shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Award and works out of his own shop in Hamilton, Ontario, as a cabinetmaker and carpenter.

European Quarter Spring 2007
SPU's 20th European Quarter fittingly begins in Rome, where "Europe" began and 2500 years of history have left visible traces. After Easter (celebrated in Rome!), the group travels to Sorrento (also visiting Naples and Pompeii) and Florence. Then it's on to Vienna for more art and glorious music (as well as Freud and Frankl) and then Berlin where politics and the European Union will be our focus. After experiencing Strasbourg, students select intensive language programs onsite in Germany and France. You need not be a foreign language student to seize this excellent opportunity to broaden your cultural, philosophical, political, spiritual, and communicational horizons. For more information please contact Kevin Gibbons at gibbok@spu.edu or (206)-281-2670.
