We're going to focus on authors John Steinbeck and Jim Schaap on this week's Cultural Continuum. Also a new theater opens, sort of.
One Book One Siouxland has many events starting in April, also Small Wonders writer Jim Schaap does some live readings and book signings. Vangarde is very busy with the blues and NISO's spring concert features the "King of Instruments".
Most of the listening region is under either a Winter Weather Advisory or a Winter Storm Warning so obviously be careful and all events are subject to change, but there's a Farce at Sioux City Community Theatre and Aladdin Jr. at LAMB, Chad Elliott is busy in Cherokee and Book People welcomes "Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim" Ed Fallon.
Great weekend to get out if you're looking for some art, also the Siouxland Coffee Festival gets underway at the Sioux City Convention Center another fine performance for the Morningside College Piano Recital Series and Watermelon Slim and his band go to work at Vangarde Arts.
I’d like to think of them as ours, but they aren’t—not really. Bison will be forever associated with our own Great Plains, but evidence of their roaming has turned up from Florida to Alaska, Maine to Mexico. They don’t “belong” only to those of us who live here.
