Aug. 3, 2023: Idaho's Writer in Residence, "Escape to Margaritaville," Staying Gold

On TA(P) this week: poet Kerri Webster, Spokane Valley Summer Theatre's new musical, Outsiders devotee Ann Ciasullo

This week's episode of the Thursday Arts (P)review — where the "p" is parenthetical because we look both forward and back — features the following:

  • Kerri Webster, the newly appointed Idaho Writer in Residence. The Boise-based poet also curated this week's Poetry Moment on Spokane Public Radio.
  • A reprise of the Spokane Valley Summer Theatre's recent From the Studio performance of "Three Chords" from their 2023 season finale, Escape to Margaritaville. Their production of the Jimmy Buffett musical opens this weekend (Aug. 4).
  • Ann Ciasullo, a professor of English and Women's & Gender Studies at Gonzaga University and author of the new book The Outsiders: Adolescent Tenderness and Staying Gold. Her love of the film followed a screening at the Garland Theater in 1983.

The Thursday Arts (P)review airs every Thursday at 12pm on KPBX with a roundup of arts-related news and information from across the Inland Northwest.
