The Tuesday, Aug. 28 Artwaves program includes Wendy Butler’s interview with people involved in the Veterans For Peace Golden Rule Project. On Sept. 9, the historic Golden Rule boat will embark on a "Peace in the Pacific" voyage across the globe, and to support said voyage as well as awareness of the dangers of nuclear proliferation the Against the Wind festival will take place in October at Arcata Playhouse and HSU. On the second half of the Aug. 28 Artwaves program, Fortuna author/editor/teacher Cecelia Holland speaks about her years of teaching creative writing classes at Pelican Bay State Prison, and her recently published book "My Brother's Keeper," stories and poetry written by her students at Pelican Bay. Holland will give a reading from the book tonight (Wednesday, Aug. 29) at 6 p.m. at the Del Norte County Library in Crescent City. She will also offer a question-answer session following the reading.
