The Last Flapper is a one woman play co-produced by Visions Theatre and Long Lake Theater  that retrospects the life of  Zelda Fitzgerald.  Wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Last Flapper shines a spotlight on Zelda's personal experiences of creative genius, repression and passionate pursuit of life.

Music fuses with literature this Thursday at the Grand Rapids Area Library when Minnesota Book Award Winners Melanie Hoffert, Margi Preus, and Matt Rasmussen join forces with the musical stylings of Ipsifendus Collective.  The public is invited to check out this unique experience Thursday, September 14th at 7pm.

At Great River Rescue in Bemidji, a small group of volunteer animal trainers are making a profound difference in animals' lives.  The Mod Squad re-trains dogs with bad behaviors so they can be adopted into forever homes.  Ethan Larson stopped by to talk about the program and he even brought his own little rescue dog, Shiloh.

Many of our listeners were moved by Monday's solar eclipse.  We heard from Tom Salwasser who wrote about his experience in Remer Eclipse Story and our own Area Voices Producer Katie Carter jotted down some thoughts in what will become a poem as well.  We hope you enjoy them.  Until 2024! 

What did you do during the eclipse?  We'd love to know about your experience!  Send an email or give us a jingle and leave a message at 218-999-9876. 


We spoke with Lisa Jordan from the Crossing Arts Alliance in Brainerd.  She told us all about the Alliance's upcoming move,  the wearable art style show that will celebrate their new space and lots of exciting things happening in downtown Brainerd.
