Austin Peay Autumn Salon Series to host Washington Post reporter Juliet Eilperin reading from her new book “Demon Fish” October 6th

 

APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative ArtsClarksville, TN – In the summer of 2005, Juliet Eilperin jumped into the Atlantic Ocean and found herself surrounded by sharks. The sleek, fierce-looking creatures were hungry and looking for food.

Luckily, they ignored her, but what’s most astounding about this incident is that Eilperin, a national environmental reporter for the Washington Post, jumped into the swarm on purpose. She was writing an article on the sharks for the newspaper and, like all great journalists, needed to see them first hand.

APSU Autumn Salon Series to feature Sharon Mabry reading from her new book September 24th at the Customs House Museum

 

APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative ArtsClarksville, TN – Throughout Dr. Sharon Mabry’s 35-year singing career, she has rushed through airports to make connecting flights, slept in small, cavernous hotel rooms, performed on stages with inadequate acoustics and dealt with the stress of lost luggage.

Those trials mark the typical, yet unglamorous, side of any professional musicians career, and for many, those obstacles are more than they can handle. But, for the truly gifted, singing can be such a rewarding a career, which is why Mabry, an Austin Peay State University professor of music, set out to write her new book, “The Performing Life: A Singer’s Guide to Survival.”

Dr. Sharon Mabry to read from new book “The Performing Life: A Singer’s Guide to Survival.” at Autumn Salon event September 24th.
