WORLD PREMIERE

Two small-town paramedics are the first to arrive at a macabre scene. Since the cops got a flat, and there’s no help to render, all they can do is wait—until they realize every school bus in the county is about to drive right by. When the local star reporter (and the senior paramedic’s ex-wife) arrives to film the whole fiasco, things go from bad to ridiculous. A genre-bending dark comedy about just trying to do the right thing.

Presented as part of the 2024 Arkansas New Play Festival, in co-production with Arkansas Repertory Theatre

Little Sprouts is a weekly botanically-themed program for preschoolers. Each week we read stories, sing songs, and do fun nature crafts & activities.

Our participants range in age from newborns all the way up to five-year-olds who haven’t started kindergarten yet. Not only does our program serve the little ones in attendance, but also the adults who bring them. Each week we make an effort to encourage families to take the knowledge and skills they have gained from our programs and put them to use within their own homes. This is also a great way to get to know other families in the area!

Mountain Street Stage: Khemia Ensemble

Wed. Jun. 26 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Derived from the Ancient Greek word χημεία (chemistry), the Khemia Ensemble is a contemporary chamber music ensemble based in the United States that consists of artist educators who believe in representing a diverse range of voices in contemporary classical music. They dedicated to reflecting broader perspectives in contemporary classical chamber music by presenting engaging performances, commissioning new works, and mentoring the next generation of musicians.  The two programs they are bringing to the library's event center are listed below.

Spaces Between Stillness & Movement explores the complex extremes of how we simultaneously exist within the incessant noise and vibrancy of life, the hollow emptiness and serenity of quietude, and everything in between. The program features subsets of Khemia Ensemble members performing duos, trios, and small chamber works by composers such as Annika Socolofsky, Andy Akiho, Molly Joyce, Ruth Ellen Harrison, and more. This show takes place on Monday, June 24th 6-7pm.

Multiplicities examines the chromatic nature of reality. Just like the discrete colors in a color wheel can be spun to create a kaleidoscopic whirl, our lives take on different hues depending on the time, speed and context under which it is placed. Whether we are the initiators of our own transformations, or are the recipients of initiators that life presents along our path, Multiplicities celebrate the range, the experience and the emotions such markers create to form the patchwork of our lives. With contemporary classical music by Pascal Le Boeuf, Jessica Meyer, Allison-Loggins-Hull and others, experience a seamless concert of chamber and solo music works with multi-genre and multimedia elements thoughtfully interwoven. This show takes place on Wednesday, June 26th 6-7pm.

The Shandies at Six Twelve

Wed. Jun. 26 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Shandies are Shannon Stine (vocals/guitar) and Natalie Wlodarczyk (vocals/guitar), a married female folk rock duo who have become a staple of the vibrant local music scene in Springfield, MO since they formed in 2016.

Their sound incorporates folk, rock, and pop influences marked by their signature “fresh-squeezed harmony.” The Shandies’ fourth studio album "If You Knew Me" was released in July 2023 and took their sound to a new level of production while keeping the same eclectic songwriting style they have become known for by their local fans.

The Shandies have shared the stage with Mary Gauthier, Katie Pruitt, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and Sarah Lee Guthrie and were chosen by the Springfield Sister Cities Association to tour Isesaki, Japan in 2019. Their song "I Won't Be Back" was a finalist in the 24th Annual Great American Song Contest.

Facts and Fiction in West Africa - A Conversation with Uchenna Awoke

Thu. Jun. 27 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join the Undisciplined Podcast hosts, Dr. Caree Banton and Dr. Karynecia Conner for an interview with Arkansas International Writer-at-Risk, Uchenna Awoke for a discussion of his latest novel, "The Liquid Eye of a Moon". This interview will be a live recording for the KUAF podcast, Undisciplined.

Uchenna Awoke lives and writes in Nsukka, Nigeria. His short stories have appeared in Transition, Elsewhere Lit, Trestle Ties, Oyster River Pages, The Evergreen Review, and other places. He received fellowships from MacDowell and the Vermont Studio Center in 2017 and 2019 respectively. He is an Artist Protection Fund Fellow and the Arkansas International Writer-at-Risk Residency Fellow, currently living in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He is also a 2019 Graywolf Africa Prize finalist. "The Liquid Eye of a Moon" is his debut novel.

9781646221905

About "The Liquid Eye of a Moon":
A Nigerian Catcher in the Rye, Uchenna Awoke’s masterful debut breaks the silence about a hidden and dangerous contemporary caste system.

Fifteen-year-old Dimkpa dreams of the day his father will be made village head. He will return to school and maybe even go on to university; his mother will no longer have to break her back foraging wild food to sell at market; they will have the money to build a fine tomb for his aunt Okike; and his family’s status as ohu ma, the lowest Igbo caste, won’t matter anymore. But when his father is passed over for a younger man, breaking tradition, Dimkpa realizes that he must make his own fate.

Journeying from his small village in rural Nigeria, to Lagos, Awka, and home again, Dimkpa learns that no money is easy money, that superstition runs deep, that knowledge is power, and that sometimes it is better to live in the present than to always be chasing a future just out of reach.

"The Liquid Eye of a Moon" is by turns hilarious and poignant, capturing all the messiness of adolescence, and the difficulty of making your own way in a world that seeks to oppress you.

About Dr. Caree Banton:
Dr. Caree Banton is the Chair of the History Department, Associate Professor of African Diaspora History, and the former Director of the African and African American Studies Program at the University of Arkansas.

Her work has been supported by the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship, the Andrew Mellon Foundation Fellowship, the Lapidus Center Fellowship at the Schomburg Center, the Nancy Weiss Malkiel Fellowship, and the National Endowment for the Humanities grant. Dr. Banton is a member of the University of Arkansas Teaching Academy and has been named a Master Teacher in Fulbright College.

Reading & Conversation with John C. Davis for From Blue to Red: The Rise of the GOP in Arkansas

Thu. Jun. 27 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This event is free and open to the public.

About From Blue to Red: The Rise of the GOP in Arkansas

On the morning of Election Day 2010, Democrats occupied three of the four Arkansas seats in the US House of Representatives, both US Senate seats, all state constitutional offices, and decisive majorities in both chambers of the Arkansas General Assembly. By the time votes were counted that evening, it was clear that the balance of power had shifted. Within five years, Arkansas Republicans would hold all six US congressional positions and every state constitutional seat and claim growing supermajorities in both state chambers. Since then, Republicans have enjoyed robust electoral success in Arkansas—formerly the last remaining state of the “Solid South” held by Democrats.

John C. Davis’s From Blue to Red: The Rise of the GOP in Arkansas provides a rigorous yet accessible study of this partisan shift, tracking changes in voter preference at the top of the ticket in the 1960s, generational replacement in Arkansas’ political power structure in the 1990s, and the emergence of a more nationalized and polarized electorate in the 2000s, among other developments. From Blue to Red is a fascinating look at how Arkansas went from being one of the country’s most solidly Democratic states to one of its most ardently Republican in just a few years.

About John

John C. Davis is the executive director of the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History and associate teaching professor of political science at the University of Arkansas. An eighth-generation Arkansan, Davis lives with his family in Fayetteville.

Author Talk: Randall Woods-"John Quincy Adams: A Man for the Whole People"

Fri. Jun. 28 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Historian and award-winning author and UA Professor Randall Woods explores the complex life of John Quincy Adams in this compelling look at the sixth president.

Fayetteville Public Library is delighted to welcome award-winning historian Randall Woods to discuss the release of his engaging new biography, John Quincy Adams: A Man for the Whole People. Randall Woods, with a lifelong fascination for Adams and more than a decade of research, presents a compelling look at the many personal and political layers of John Quincy, bringing him to life for modern readers. Most readers know John Quincy Adams as a pivotal American diplomat and politician from a storied family that helped to shape and transform the early path of the nation. Here, readers will also gain insights to the man -- exploring his ambitions and intellectual interests, his love of literature and poetry, and his strained family relationships contrasting with his deeply treasured friendships.

Praise:

"Beautifully written biographies are rare gems and Randall Wood's John Quincy Adams is truly one of the most exquisite. In this contemporary moment when our democracy feels so fragile, and when the question of what defines us a nation -- what will make us the most egalitarian, the most just -- feels so pressing, this vibrant and rich look at the life of a man who was at the very center of an earlier so-similar moment in our nation's past, is sobering, hopeful, and needed." -- Heather Ann Thompson, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and its Legacy

Randall Woods will share his insights and take questions during this lively discussion. Pearl's Books will be at the event handling book sales, with a book signing to follow the discussion. Registration is requested but not required.

All abilities are welcome. For disability accommodations, call 479.856.7250 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 2-3 weekdays before a program.

About the Author:

Randall Woods is a John A. Cooper Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Arkansas, where he has taught since 1971. His books include LBJ: Architect of American Ambition and Fulbright: A Biography, which won the Robert H. Ferrell Prize.

WORLD PREMIERE

Two small-town paramedics are the first to arrive at a macabre scene. Since the cops got a flat, and there’s no help to render, all they can do is wait—until they realize every school bus in the county is about to drive right by. When the local star reporter (and the senior paramedic’s ex-wife) arrives to film the whole fiasco, things go from bad to ridiculous. A genre-bending dark comedy about just trying to do the right thing.

Presented as part of the 2024 Arkansas New Play Festival, in co-production with Arkansas Repertory Theatre

Sat. Jun. 29 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Youth Zone will consist of separate areas for different age groups, including arts and crafts, storybook readings, a space for teens, and a resource fair of LGBTQ-supportive youth-focused organizations for parents/guardians to gain information.

Parents/guardians and children are welcome and encouraged to attend spaces together. Story readings will include community members, some in costume, reading age-appropriate books to children and their parents/guardians. Our Teen Zone is for teens only but has a designated parent/guardian area inside the Teen Zone. Entertainment in this teen space is similar to a high school dance, with DJs, musical acts, and youth-appropriate performers and content, including drag performers.

All vendors, volunteers, and chaperones for the Youth Zone are vetted through an internal process that includes background checks and training. Since 2010, NWA Equality has had a similar background check policy and certification requirements for volunteers and staff working with youth programs, including Child Abuse Prevention training.

NWA Pride's website will contain a more in-depth FAQ available to the public closer to the event, with answers to logistical questions and descriptions of performers, costumes, and books that families can expect.

The NWA Pride Youth Zone will be located inside the Fayetteville Town Center. The event will occur from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, June 29, in conjunction with the NWA Pride Festival and the 5 p.m. Parade on Dickson Street.

Join us for our Summer Glass Fest! We’re going to have a glassblowing block party with our neighbors at Flavorsmith’s Craft Barbecue on June 29th from 1pm to 6pm!

We’re excited to have Greenthumb Glass and Narbles Glass be our local glassblowers! They will be selling their work and doing live demonstrations for you to enjoy. We’re also stoked to have Pimpassbossman Glass coming down from Missouri to showcase his glass before he makes the big move to the Virgin Islands!

We will have a handful of other great local artists and vendors such as Amanda Fuller who is a great artist who will also be doing tarot readings. We will have Erica Flores here again with her custom crystal jewelry & more. We’re also excited to have Exquisite Dark Curio coming back with his collection of antiques, vintage oddities, and curiosities!

Ikigai Creations will be here bringing the vibes and fire dancing. He’s an excellent fire spinner who also makes fire props and custom opal jewelry! The Lloyd Lounge will be here for the first time vending their custom, upcycled furniture! They’re great at refurbishing and adding their own artistic twist. Last but not least, the Wandering Goats will be returning with Grateful Dead alpaca jackets, crystals, jewelry, handcrafted items, and much more!

We’re excited to see you all there as we get this summer kicked off together!! Bring your friends and let’s have some community fun!

WORLD PREMIERE

Two small-town paramedics are the first to arrive at a macabre scene. Since the cops got a flat, and there’s no help to render, all they can do is wait—until they realize every school bus in the county is about to drive right by. When the local star reporter (and the senior paramedic’s ex-wife) arrives to film the whole fiasco, things go from bad to ridiculous. A genre-bending dark comedy about just trying to do the right thing.

Presented as part of the 2024 Arkansas New Play Festival, in co-production with Arkansas Repertory Theatre
