Moonstruck Literary Series re-emerges as Peregrine Series

by: SUBMITTED ART: MICHELE KRAUSE - The Moonstruck Chocolate Literary Series has reemerged as Peregrine Literary Series. The inaugural reading will be held Sunday at Holy Names Heritage Center.

When Moonstruck Chocolate Café closed last June, Moonstruck Literary Series, which convened at the café, ceased with the promise by founder Joan Maier that it would reemerge at a later date. Maier has announced that the series will begin this Sunday at 7 p.m. at Holy Names Heritage Center as the Peregrine Literary Series.

“Peregrine draws its name from the verb to peregrine or to roam,” said Maier. “The word also refers to the Peregrine falcon depicted by local artist Michele Krause, assistant manager at the Marylhurst University bookstore.”

Maier, a Marylhurst University writing instructor and published author, said the mission of the series is to showcase Northwest authors and musicians. Featured writers for the Sept. 15 program are students whose work appears in the 2013 “Honoring Our Rivers” anthology, including Sam Ellenby, Francesca Mondeaux, Talia Rosenbloom, Sam Rosenfield, William Sweek and Jackson Whittemore. The anthology also features invited artists and poets, including West Linn poet David Hedges, who will present his tribute to She-Who-Watches. Sarah Schra, “Honoring Our Rivers” project director, will explain how students can contribute creativity while studying and protecting natural resources.

The Peregrine Series readings are generally scheduled for the third Sunday of the month, except during December, July and August. Events are free and open to the public. Canned food items are collected for the community food bank. Parking is abundant and accessible.

Holy Names Heritage Center is located at 17425 Holy Names Drive in Lake Oswego.
