Alicja Mann Author- Reading from her book LOOKING AT THE WORLD TWICE

        On Monday, November 16th at The Royal Sun Cafe at 1003 N. Stone Avenue in Tucson, Alicja will be the featured reader at the National Writers Union reading and open mic event.  I will be reading from my newly published book Looking at the World Twice; Essays & Poems on Identity, Belonging and Otherness. www.lookingattheworldtwice.com

      The book is the winner of the 2009 National Indie Excellence Book Award in the Short Story Nonfiction category.  She wrote many of these essays from the perspective of the “other European” (from Eastern Europe) and “other American” (an immigrant).  

       The evening will start at 5:30 or so, for those who want to have dinner.   The reading followed by  the open mic will start around 6:15. 

       The Royal Sun Cafe is just south of the Best Western hotel at the northwest corner of 1st Street and Stone Avenue.    There is parking between the cafe and the motel that can be accessed from Stone; there is additional parking behind the cafe, which can be accessed from 1st Street.  Hope to see you there!

       Also, this coming Saturday and Sunday ( November 14and 15th) her  studio located at 2707 North Orchard Avenue  will be a part of the Tucson Open Studio event sponsored by Tucson Pima Arts Council in which artists will open their studios to the public from 11 a.m. till 5 p.m.   Please feel welcomed to visit my studio and bring your friends, family, and good mood!

2707 N. Orchard Avenue  is in the area where Grant and Swan cross – north of Grant, west of Swan. My studio’s phone is: 520-344-7440

Again, hope to see you!

Alicja Mann Author-LOOKING AT THE WORLD TWICE, a newly published collection of essays and poems and SON OF MASHPEE, a book dedicated to the Wampanoags, their heritage, and culture

      Alicja Mann is a writer of creative nonfiction who divides her time between Tucson, Arizona  and Cape Cod.

      Her social and political commentaries, feature stories, and personality profiles have been published in regional and national magazines, including the Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod Life, In These Times, and the New Leader.

      She is a former op-ed columnist for theCape Cod Times and co-author of Son of Mashpee, a book dedicated to the Wampanoags, their heritage, and culture. 

      LOOKING AT THE WORLD TWICE is her newly published collection of essays and poems.  These essays and poems take the reader on a journey through space and time addressing issues of identity, alienation, belonging, and responsibility.  Sometimes funny, sometimes tearful, but always thoughtful, this book charms and provokes.  It invites the reader to sit and reflect, as symbolized by the art on the cover of the book.

      Alicja Mann writes from the perspective of “the other European” (from Eastern Europe) and “the other American” (an immigrant).  She came to the States from Poland at a time when it was still dominated by Soviet-style Communism.  In her new country she transformed herself from a scientist to a writer.

      SON OF MASHPEE is a distinctive and nostalgic book that presents Mashpee as it once was, and is today.  In 2007, the Wampanoag, tribe of Mashpee, Cape Cod, received federal govenment recognition as a sovereign American Indian nation, after a legal battle wated by the tribe for more than three decades. 

      The book is richly illustrated with photographs dating back to the 1800’s.  Alicja Mann, who befriended the Wampanoags and worked with them for decades, is co-author of the book (co-author is Earl Mills Sr.).

      SON OF MASHPEE is used in anthropology classes at the University of Massachusetts and is recommended as a resource for students and teachers from middle school through university.
