Marsalis first in University Speakers Series

Musician Wynton Marsalis, along with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, will inaugurate the University Speakers Series with a sold-out concert in Glenn Auditorium on Nov. 4, a master class with the Emory Jazz Ensemble the afternoon of Nov. 5 and a lecture in Glenn that evening.

The University Speakers Series arose from the work of the Student Government Association and the Campus Life committee of the University Senate, and it has been in the planning stages for more than two years. Its purpose is to help the Emory community come together for an appearance by a highly engaging popular speaker whose message appeals to a broad spectrum of the University community.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for Marsalis' Nov. 5 lecture, "No America, No Jazz," which will begin at 8 p.m.

The workshop is open to the Emory community, museum staff, curators, arts administrators and interested members of the public who want to examine the nature of relations between museums and diverse communities, as subjects, collaborators and audience. Internationally recognized curators and scholars from Atlanta and elsewhere will give presentations and lead discussions.

The event is free, but reservations are required. For more information call 404-727-7804.

Writer Kathy Hogan Trocheck to read from latest novel

The Women's Center hosts mystery writer Kathy Hogan Trocheck in its second annual reading series by women writers of genre fiction Nov. 2 at 7:45 p.m. in 205 White Hall.

Trocheck, an Agatha, Anthony and Macavity mystery award nominee known for her eccentrically charming characters and witty dialogue, was a journalist for 14 years before launching her fiction career. She will read from her latest book, Midnight Clear, the seventh installment in the Callahan Garrity mystery series, where Trocheck takes a dramatic look at family troubles of Garrity, former Atlanta cop, part-time sleuth and full-time owner of House Mouse, a cleaning service that tidies up after the city's elite. Midnight Clear has been optioned by CBS as a possible miniseries and also has been published in England, Germany, Denmark and Holland.

Trocheck's other novels include Crash Course and Lickety Split, which feature protagonist Truman Kicklighter, a retired Florida newspaperman, based in St. Petersburg.

A reception follows the reading and booksigning. For more information call 404-727-2000 or send e-mail to <astarkm@emory.edu>.
