Calendar Features

A journalist and author in multiple genres including graphic novels, G. Willow Wilson’s most recent work is “Ms. Marvel,” a comic book featuring superhero Kamala Khan, a teenaged Muslim woman. Wilson, who splits her time between Egypt and the U.S., was the first Westerner to be granted an interview with Sheikh Ali Gomaa, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, and her graphic novel Cairo was a New York Times Notable Book and nominee for the Orange Prize. “G. Willow Wilson has a deft hand with myth and magic,” says graphic novelist Neil Gaiman, “and the kind of smart, honest writing mind that knits together and bridges cultures and people.” She also regularly writes about the Middle East and modern Islam for the New York Times and The Atlantic.

G. Willow Wilson will give a free talk about “Reading Comics in Cairo” at 6pm Thursday, March 26, at the downtown library.

The Glow Variety Show, says impresario Anna Miller, is characterized by a “calculated chaos of comedy, high-energy kung-faux fighting and irreverent pop-culture parodies.” Since 2004, audiences have delighted in featured performers NANDA’s “Acrobaticalist Ninja Action Hero” antics that incorporate dance, juggling and acrobatics. Also in the spotlight is Twonz, brothers who do “cropping,” mixing current styles of dance with their own. Miller says her goal in putting together this show is to “inspire human connection by bringing people of all ages together to share experiences and heartfelt feelings through performance art.” Glow benefits the Trauma Healing Project.

The Glow Variety Show, a benefit for the Trauma Healing Project, takes place 7pm Saturday, March 28, and 3pm Sunday, March 29, in the LCC Raggozino Performance Hall, 4000 E. 30th Ave.; $15-20. — Rachael Carnes

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!
