Salem Academy Theatre presents "Twelve Angry Women" by Reginald Rose, adapted by Sherman Sergel Nov 15, 2013 from 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM Drama Workshop, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Thursday – Saturday, November 14 - 16, at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, November 17, at 2:00 p.m. The personalities of 12 jurors come to life when they are chosen to determine the fate of a 19-year-old boy who has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. The discussion becomes personal, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their own eyes!
Author and Biographer Penelope Niven Nov 12, 2013 from 07:30 PM to 08:30 PM Shirley Recital Hall, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Penelope Niven, the critically-acclaimed author of Carl Sandburg: a Biography; Steichen: a Biography; and Swimming Lessons, will return to Salem for the paperback release of Thornton Wilder: A Life, published by HarperCollins and praised by Edward Albee as “a splendid and long-needed work.” Carl Sandburg: Adventures of a Poet, her biography for children, has been awarded an International Reading Association Prize “for exceptionally distinguished literature for children,” one of six books honored among publications from 99 countries. She is also co-author, with actor James Earl Jones, of Voices and Silences, praised as “a classic on acting.” Niven served as Salem College’s writer-in-residence for 12 years until her retirement. She is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Thornton Wilder Visiting Fellowship at the Beinecke Library at Yale and was awarded the North Carolina Award in Literature, the state’s highest civilian honor, for her work as a writer and a teacher.

FLOW: Four Emerging Ukrainian Photographers Nov 08, 2013 from 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM Mary Davis Holt Gallery, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Valentyn Bo, Ivan Chernichkin, Yuriy Salabay and Maria Voynova Exhibition: November 1, 2013–February 7, 2014 Reception Date: Friday, November 8, at 6:00 p.m. This group of Ukrainian photographers, also called the 4 in 1, joined their efforts through active memberships in the Ukrainian Photographic Alternative in 2011. The group has exhibited work at the Diplomat gallery in Philadelphia, P.A. In November 2012, their second big project, “the Flow,” took place at the Art Center Ya Gallery, Kiev, Ukraine. The Flow project was accompanied by the book of the same name being published in Ukraine. The Flow exhibit represents the artists’ view on photography as well as on subjective topics such as beauty and perception of the environment. Its deliberate lack of defined theme aims to convey the idea of unlimited seeing; being in the state of flow, where plenty of possibilities exist for interpreting and understanding the visible. “Without any final goal and linkage to certain context, to shot and to layer the photos on each other as empty baskets in the supermarket, 200 items.” Some works in this exhibit may contain mature content.

Author Dana Trent, C'03 Nov 04, 2013 from 07:30 PM to 08:30 PM Shirley Recital Hall, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Saffron Cross is the love story of Dana, a Baptist minister, and Fred, a devout Hindu and former monk. The two meet on eHarmony and begin a sometimes daunting but ultimately inspiring journey of interfaith relationship and marriage. Trent’s compelling vignettes, often hilarious and refreshingly honest, offer readers a glimpse into the challenges of bringing together two vastly different spiritual paths into one household. Trent is a freelance writer, nonprofit consultant and adjunct faculty member in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Sponsored by the Office of Cultural Events with the support of Salem College Interfaith Council.

Lee Smith is the author of 16 books of fiction, including the bestselling novels Fair and Tender Ladies and The Last Girls, winner of the Southern Book Critics Circle Award. Her new book, Guests on Earth, centers on Evalina Toussaint, the orphaned child of an exotic dancer in New Orleans. She is just 13 when she is admitted to Highland Hospital in Asheville, N.C. The year is 1936, and the mental hospital is under the direction of the celebrated psychiatrist Robert S. Carroll, whose program of treatment for mental and nervous disorders and addictions is based on exercise, diet, art, occupational therapies—and experimental shock therapy. Guests on Earth is a mesmerizing novel about a time and a place where creativity and passion, theory and medicine, fact and fiction, are beautifully intertwined by a writer at the height of her craft. Tickets are not required for this free event with general admission seating. However, tickets can be purchased through for the Premier Reception, which includes one ticket for the Conversation Event at 7:00 p.m. with reserved premier seating and parking as well as a private reception with Lee Smith beginning at 5:30 p.m., featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres, Raffaldini wines, a hardback copy of Guests on Earth, and a book signing.
