At the Kansas Authors Club Convention last October in Dodge City, both the Board and general membership voted approval of appropriate awards for longtime members for their time and service to KAC's literary community. This Awards Program acknowledges KAC members for active, continuing service for progressive intervals of 10, 15 and 20+ years. This program begins January, 2009.
      When KAC members indicate to their respective District Presidents that they have belonged for these years of continuous, active membership, a certificate of achievement will be prepared for each member for those 10, 15 or 20+ year increments of time. The State Archivist will assist the District and State Presidents in verifying the member's length of service. A prepared certificate, pin and a memento will be supplied to the District President for presentation to the qualified members of his/her district.
      A list of awards includes not only a nicely-printed certificate -- but also something of a more tangible nature:

      Moreover, annual membership dues will be eliminated for those KAC members over the age of 80.
      Names of those given such awards will also be publicly acknowledged and congratulated by the current State President at the annual KAC Convention in a short segment of the Sunday banquet. Those honored will also receive a letter of appreciation signed by the State President.       A new-member reception at each State Convention will provide a social mixer for new and established members to introduce themselves and discuss literary ideas.
        News of members' length of membership and subsequent awards will also be publicized in the State and District newsletters, the KAC Yearbook and the KAC web page.
      Costs of materials, supplies and labor involved in the production of these membership awards will be provided by an anonymous donor and will not be paid by the Kansas Authors Club. 1/28/2009

Pittsburg Editors Revive Little Balkans Review
   In 1980, Gene DeGruson, a special collections library curator at Pittsburg State University, established the Little Balkans Review. Its main purpose was to highlight history and arts of the southeast Kansas region. Coal mines attracted immigrants from Italy, France, Wales, and English in the 19th century. This was an area where unions evolved, and where Emanuel Haldeman-Julius (1888-1951) published Little Blue Books and the Socialist periodical Appeal to Reason.
   Ted Watts, Al Ortolani, Jr., Wayne Bockelman, Tom Burns, Mike Hogard, and John Laflen are now calling for submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, photographs, and artwork. They write in their letter of solicitation: "Prime consideration is given to works by Kansans and former Kansans, as well as work set in the Little Balkans. However, consideration is also given to work with similar regional flare. Preference is given for non-fiction subjects related to the Little Balkans. At least half of the poetry of each issue will be devoted to poets who have limited previous publication."

"Literacy Debate: Online, R U Really Reading?"
As teenagers' scores on standardized reading tests have declined or stagnated, some argue that the hours spent prowling the Internet are the enemy of reading — diminishing literacy, wrecking attention spans and destroying a precious common culture that exists only through the reading of books. But others say the Internet has created a new kind of reading, one that schools and society should not discount. —NYTimes, 7/27/2008

    The Kansas Humanities Council (KHC) Board of Directors recently completed a national search and has named Julie Mulvihill Executive Director, effective January 1, 2007. She will become only the second director in the organization’s 34-year history when the current Executive Director, Marion Cott, retires in December 2006.

Other work experience includes teaching in the KU Museum Studies graduate program, where she currently instructs the Nature or Museums course.

[dust jacket] A Hungry Heart: A Memoir, by Gordon ParksREMEMBERING GORDON PARKS
Kansas native Gordon Parks
, author, photographer, and filmmaker, died at his home in New York on Tuesday, March 7, 2006. He was 93. Parks was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Fort Scott, KS, his birthplace. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius spoke at his memorial service..
    Fifty-one of Parks' photos and about a dozen of his poems are on permanent display at Mercy Health Center in Fort Scott. It is the largest collection of Parks' works in the United States, excluding the Library of Congress. Jan Biles of the Topeka Capital-Journal recaps Parks’ life in “A life worth celebrating.”
   In February Parks received the 2006 William Allen White citation  Although he was unable to attend the February 10 ceremony in his honor, a video of the Fort Scott native accepting the award in December from Ann Brill, journalism dean, was shown in the public program. 3/11/06
Affiliates for the The Kansas Center for the Book met in Topeka on Tuesday, December 13. Kansas Authors Club is a Charter Affiliate of the new Center. Many of the reps attending were staff at libraries across the state. Carol Yoho represented Kansas Authors Club at the meeting. 
Kansas Center for the Book business and iniatives included the following:
  1. Kansas Center for the Book defines their mission as "supporting books by Kansans and books about Kansas." They told us that being charter Affliliate Members" of this group would leave us a legacy for many years to come and we should be proud of that distinction.
  2. Their budget year is from July 1 to June 30. For 2005-06 they've raised just over $15,000 and have spent just over $5,000. The Center must be self-supporting. Roy Bird of the Kansas State Library is Director, and has been assigned 25% time for these duties. There are currently just over 30 Affiliate members -- and about 80 individual members, half of them authors.
  3. December 1st was deadline for a national Letters for Literacy program, encouraging youth in a writing competition, 4th through 12th grades, divided into three age group levels. All entries went to the National Center for the Book. Top entrees for Kansas will come back here and judged for final winners. (This is an annual competition and we may want to help support and encourage this contest as well as our own.)
  4. Another program supported by the Kansas Center for the Book was "One Week — One Book" reading to preschoolers. This encouraged adults to read a specific book to all preschoolers in the state during a particular week in November. The book chosen was No Matter What, written and illustrated by Debi Gliori. Governor Sebelius supported this effort with an offical proclamation and she read to children during the week of the event. Kansas Center for the Book would also like to do a program for adults with this read-the-same-thing-at-the-same-time theme. www.kansasreadstokids.org
  5. Kansas Center for the Book is planning a statewide Fall Book Fair -- maybe the first weekend in October 2006. Affiliates brainstormed about what they'd like to see our book fair entail and there were lots of exciting ideas in the brainstorming session. 12/16/05
[The Kansas Center for the Book, was once a program of the Kansas State Library that invited individual authors and others involved in literacy, reading promotion, and literary efforts in Kansas to join. The goal of the Fellows was to foster more literary activity throughout the state and to increase awareness of these activities. 8/7/16]

This I Believe: An NPR Essay Project
Premieres April 4 on Morning Edition and All Things Considered
NPR is re-creating Edward R. Murrow's 1950s invitation to all Americans to write about and discuss the core beliefs that guide their daily lives. In 1951, Murrow asked Americans from all walks of life—including former U.S. presidents, captains of industry, taxi drivers, actors and homemakers—to write brief essays about their most fundamental and closely held beliefs. Now, NPR, Atlantic Public Media, and This I Believe, Inc. are partnering to re-create the project with host Jay Allison. You are invited to write about the principles by which you live and the people and events that have shaped your beliefs in an essay of 500 words or 3 minutes when read aloud, to be considered for broadcast on NPR. See the web site for essay writing instructions, audio segments from the previous series, essays written by a few of the early participants, and other details. http://www.npr.org/thisibelieve/ 3/31/05

"Our hope is that the more artists, craftspersons, and food producers included in this directory, the better they can strategically market their products to Kansans and those travelers."
     The state partnership is interested in assessing the opportunities within Kansas to:

     Over 5,000 surveys were sent to artisans and food producers around the state in April. The return deadline was April 30. For more information, please contact Katie Bartkoski at 785-296-3810 or kbartkoski@kansascommerce.com.
     In November 2006, a Kansas Culture and Heritage Conference is planned.
