Afghan Americans feature presented at Anchorage gallery.


The Alaska literary journal Cirque will have a performance/reading centered around Theodore Roethke at the Bullitt Cabaret, 700 Union St. in Seattle at 7p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28. It's a fundraiser for the magazine and part of the big book conference happening down there. More information is available at

Also of interest to Alaska literati is an upcoming exhibit at the International Gallery of Contemporary Art in downtown Anchorage. "Afghan Americans: Ditychs," billed as "a study in duality by Andrea Bruce," will be on display in the Guest Room. The feature in The Alaska Quarterly Review has been excerpted by The New Yorker.

Elsewhere in the Gallery, work by Kendall Nordin, Bailey Arend and Z. Denise Gallup will be on display. The shows will open with the next round of First Friday events, March 7, and remain on display through March 29.
