In Their Own Write, volume 2 (2023)

IN THEIR OWN WRITE/Epiphanies and Captions/Saturday, June 10, 4 p.m./Join Us!

The In Their Own Write panel showcases a sampling of our pilgrims, poets, prophets, playwrights and, oh yes, cartoonists. (FIVE MINUTES EACH in speed-dating mode.)

Including a special performance by Rosanne Olson and Ted McMahon of “Four Strong Winds,” in commemoration of Ian and Sylvia’s epic Fall 1965 performance.

Center for Development Economics classroom, 4 p.m., Saturday, June 10

  • Peter Abrahams, aka Spencer Quinn, “who seems to have taken over my career,” Peter says, reading from his novel, “Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge,” published on July 25
  • Alexander Caskey, from his work-in-progress, “A.I., the good, the bad, the ugly and the absolutely terrifying”
  • Geoff Connor, with a scene from his screenplay, “Achtung Deutschland,” about “Jewish and gay revenge on Hitler and Goebbels”
  • John Fulkerson, surgeon and vintner, reading from “Thin Lines: A Vineyard Journey”
  • Robert Herzog, with a scene from his play, “4 Times 50, Not 200,” “about four men who get together to celebrate their 50th birthdays in 1996,” Robert says.
  • Tony Kronman, via Zoom, reading from his just-published book, “After Disbelief: On Disenchantment, Disappointment, Eternity, and Joy”
  • Rosanne Olson and Ted McMahon, dueting on “Four Strong Winds” plus one of Rosanne’s original songs, “Cross Over”
