    The Best of Second City is an unforgettable ride through decades of hilarity, packed with classic sketches that helped make this America's foremost comedy troupe. Dubbed "a temple of satire" by Time magazine, "The Second City" has been convulsing audiences since its founding in Chicago in 1959. The troupe leaped to fame by lampooning every aspect of modern American life with brilliant, improvisatory sketches on subjects ranging from salad bars to affairs of state. Wave after wave of talent emerged from "The Second City", including Mike Nichols, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and John Belushi. Now you can share in the rich comic legacy with more than four hours of vintage sketches and new material, performed by current members of The Second City and distinguished guest alumni Edward Asner, Marsha Mason, Arye Gross, and Tim Kazurinsky.

    Pictograph - Poems

    The prize-winning poet evokes the spirit of nature in this collection inspired by the sacred sites around her rural Montana home. 
     
    “If you would learn the earth as it really is,” N. Scott Momaday writes, “learn it through its sacred places.” With this quote as her guiding light, Melissa Kwasny traveled to ancient pictograph and petroglyph sites across Montana. 
     
    In Pictograph, she captures the natural world she encounters around the sacred art, filling it with new, personal meaning: brief glimpses of starlight through the trees become a reminder of the impermanence of life, the controlled burn of a forest a sign of the changes associated with aging. 
     
    Unlike traditional nature poets, however, Kwasny acknowledges the active spirit of each place, agreeing that “we make a sign and we receive.” Not only do we give meaning to nature, Kwasny suggests, but nature gives meaning to us. As the collection closes, the poems begin to coalesce into a singular pictograph, creating “a fading language that might be a bridge to our existence here.”

    Literature is a world of words and wonder, able to take us on almost unimaginable journeys from the wild and fantastic to the grind and minutiae of life. 
     
    An author’s ideas are his building blocks, his architecture of the mind, building a structure on which all else will rest; the narrative, the characters, the words - those few words that begin the adventure. 
     
    In this series we look at some of our leading classic authors across two genres: the short story and the poem.  In this modern world there is an insatiable need to categorise and pigeon-hole everyone and everything.  But ideas, these grains and saplings of the brain, need to roam, to explore and find their perfect literary use vehicle.  Our authors are masters of many literary forms, perhaps known for one but themselves favouring another. 
     
    Story. Poems. Story.  Within these boundaries come all manner of invention and cast of characters.  And, of course, each author has their own way of revealing their own chapter and verse.

    E AHAKU NUI, E KĀ RAKATIRA O KĀ HAU MAHA  TĒNEI TE MIHI KI A KOUTOU KATOA.

    NAU MAI, TAUTĪ MAI E HOA MĀ. 
    The Māori language version of the story evolved from a theatrical puppet show by TORO PIKOPIKO PUPPETS, that premiered at TE ANA MĀORI ROCK-ART CENTRE in 2017 called TE REREKA – THE FLIGHT. This rock-art puppet musical was adapted as an on-line interactive e-Audiobook for the Ministry of Education in 2018, and has now been formatted as a 70 minute, 6-chapter audiobook i te reo Kāi Tahu, my tribal dialect. The story is about Pourakahua, who is transformed into a spirit bird that flies to Aotearoa, New Zealand in search of her own kind. In my interpretation, she flies up the Ōpihi river, meeting a host of colourful creatures living in caves and limestone rock shelters, pursued by a bevy of bird-hunters. TE REREKA WAIRUA O POURAKAHUA is informed and inspired by the ancient rock-art from the South Canterbury region. To access the bi-lingual pictorial manuscript of this audio-book and other promotional material go to: www.maorirockartpuppets.com
