Thursday Night Recommendation: Mark Stegeman at Odyssey

Posted By on Thu, Aug 1, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Yes, I have big love for Odyssey Storytelling and have presented a few stories there, albeit mostly sappy mom stuff about my son and another night right after the Jan. 8 tragedy. Plus, I plan to participate in the Dec. 5 evening appropriately titled, "Big Bad Words: The B*tch Show," but here's a somewhat tardy Thursday night recommendation — head over there tonight, at 7 p.m. for "Saved by the Bell: School Stories."

There are some interesting folks that curator Lori Riegel has put together for the evening, but what I want to know is what in the world is Tucson Unified School District governing board member Mark Stegeman going to talk about? Perhaps Riegel, a University High School graduate who seemed so darn grateful for Stegeman championing the proposal that her school get its own building during last year's hearings on school closures, asked the controversial school board member to talk about the successes at UHS or maybe he has a notebook full of prose about the number of times he's been called a racist (I think he keeps count).

At any rate, it is likely to be an eventful night of storytelling at Fluxx Studios & Gallery, 416 E. 9th St. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and there's a $7 cover.

Other storytellers include Richard Feinburg, director for community outreach for the Foundation for Cardiovascular Heart Health series; local artist Simon Donovan; music teacher Julie Unger Zorn; former schoolteacher, administrator, and PCC governing board member, Georgia Brousseau; and University High teacher John Hosmer.
