Arts Fest Becomes Literate

There will be another group of artists alongside the painters, potters, jewelers, photographers and musicians of Arts Fest 2010: authors. Arts Fest has now accepted the written word into its gallery and will definitely be at least twice as “Fest” with Book Fest PA.

The event will celebrate books (they’re like Web sites with more dead trees) as well as local authors. The first annual Book Fest PA will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today in the Schlow Centre Region Library. Each hour, a different author will present their work, meet fans, sign books, and talk about writing experiences.

The “guest author” will be Christopher McDougall, a former war correspondent for the Associated Press and a three-time National Magazine Award finalist. His book, Born to Run, has been on The New York Times bestseller list for more than eight months. Book Fest PA will be free of charge. The full schedule of events and authors can be found here.

The 3 Keys to Never Graduating

It is that time of year again. The weather is getting warmer when it feels like it and we switch to shorter pants just as the insects begin to multiply. It is a magical time of year that some of us will see for the last time in State College. For those lucky few, not going to class this week is a sign of maturity. With a college degree ensured, the world awaits you. Unless you’re in the Liberal Arts, of course. Then, your mother’s couch awaits you. However, there exist among us the ones that dare to take it to the next level. The ones that can’t get enough binge drinking, construction, and parking citations. The ones that will never graduate. How do they do it? Very, very smugly. These are the keys to never leaving Penn State.
