A new regular series, featuring DimeStoriers. This started as a column on a site called DukeCityFix.com in Albuquerque but as that site is no longer being published, I am archiving the articles here, and hoping other chapter leaders from around the DimeStories community will participate.
To kick it off, I’m featuring stories from Andy and Susan Paquet who have been great supporters of the literary community in Albuquerque.
“Connected” by Andy Paquet and “Judge Falcone’s Funeral” by Susan Paquet
Andy Paquet grew up in Abq, went to UNM and UA, then worked at TCU in Ft. Worth, TX. He’s a retired microbiology professor. He wrote professional research publications and now enjoys the freedom to be creative, funny and not use statistics. He also emcees the DimeStories open mic here.
Susan Paquet lives in Corrales with her husband (Andy), Standard Poodle and pet goats. She began writing poems and short stories a few years ago and has never had so much fun. She recently published an Anthology, Apricots and Tortillas, about growing up in Albuquerque during the 1950’s and 60’s. Her short stories have also appeared in several other anthologies and journals.
Andy’s three (plus) favorite words are: dame, yes, nieto (grandson), and senior discount. Continue reading “Meet the Paquets”
a play by DimeStorier Terri Klein will be enjoyed at the Congregation Albert October 14-15, 2017.
Written by Terri Klein, the play centers around middle-aged dermatologist Martin Cohen who doesn’t believe in God, ghosts, or true love. Maybe that’s why they’re all out to get him. (Adult situations and language.)
Directed by Gloria Goodman; Assistant Directed by Gwenn Robinson.
Starring: Joel Miller, Owen Danan Martin, Daniele Cherry-Kokidajo Williams, Nick Olson, Hanna Cooper, Robin Lane, Charlene Fox, Wil Moore, and Frances Ozur Cole.
Featuring live Klezmer music by Di Kavene Kapelye (Randi Thompson, accordion, and Jeff Brody, violin).
Tickets are $15 for general admission; $12 for seniors (65+), students with school ID, Congregation Albert Sisterhood members, and ATG members (with membership card).
What Next is an Hours Apart production, in partnership with Congregation Albert Sisterhood. All proceeds benefit Congregation Albert.
Hoping to see you at What Next!
