The University of Oregon has more than 450 veterans on campus. According to UO Veterans and Family Student Association member Jared Smith, most students have had a class with a veteran but “never engaged with a veteran about their experiences.” Phil Klay is author of the 2014 National Book award-winning collection of short stories, Redeployment, in which he joins a long literary tradition of war vets coming home and telling the story of the conflict in which they served. Klay was deployed as a public affairs officer with the U.S. Marine Corps in Iraq’s Anbar Province from January 2007 to February 2008. After coming back to the U.S., he got his MFA — bringing together his war experiences with a liberal arts education. His stories tell of soldiers forced to shoot dogs eating human corpses and of collecting human remains but also include dark comedy, such as in the story “Money as a Weapons System,” in which a young foreign service officer is tasked with improving Iraqi lives by teaching them to play baseball.

The Veterans and Family Student Association at the UO presents an evening with Phil Klay, 7 pm Thursday, May 21, in 156 Straub Hall on the UO campus. Klay’s talk, cosponsored by the Oregon Humanities Center, is free and open to the public. It will be followed by a book signing. 

At 81, puppeteer Caroll Spinney is still the man who gives life to a pair of Sesame Street’s most beloved characters, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, a dream job he nabbed on the ground floor in 1969 when Jim Henson and crew kick-started the Children’s Television Workshop. A new documentary, I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story, is a moving tribute to Spinney’s artistry as well as his humanity. The film, which is chock-full of archival footage, contains several heartbreaking passages that reveal just how pervasive is the influence of Sesame Street on our popular culture. As Spinney recently told EW: “In a lot of towns, if you want to put your child in kindergarten, they’ll ask, ‘Has your child ever seen Sesame Street?’ And some won’t let them in unless they have watched.”

I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story opens Friday, May 22, at Bijou Art Cinemas, 492 E. 13th Ave.; times & info at bijou-cinemas.com. — Rick Levin

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!

The calendar lists free events and special, one-time events that charge admission. We list one-time workshops under $15, but do not list ongoing classes or workshops that charge any sort of fee.

To list in our calendar: Place the date (example: July 15, 2014)  in the subject line of your message. 

At the top of the message, include briefly and without extra description:
