This performance is in conjunction with the exhibition opening for “Through the Looking Glass” featuring new work by Yuni Lee. This show opens Sat March 12 and will run till Sun April 24. Yuni Lee’s lively engagement with paint reveals a lyrical sensibility. There are no static passages in her pictures, shapes and colors swirl and flow in subtle abandon. There are flash points of vivid color that might obliquely reference her Korean heritage but her intent is not meant to be specific. Ms. Lee cultivates an abiding passion for the act of painting and her exuberant work resonates with her avocation and consummate skill.

FIRST HEARINGS: MIROSLAV PENKOV

When: Thursday, March 24, 7:30 pm
WhereThe Wild Detectives, 314 West 8th Street, Dallas, 75208
Hosted by: Charles Dee Mitchell

miroslav-penkovMiroslav Penkov was born in Bulgaria in 1982 and came to the United States in 2001. The Guardian praised is first story collection, East of the West (2012) for its combination of “toughness, vulnerability and bravado.” The New Republic wrote, “These stories are not the promising work of a first-time author. They are already a promise fulfilled—wise, bright, and deep with sympathy.” East of the West was published in eleven countries, and Penkov’s translation of his work was the bestselling book in Bulgaria in 2013.

Miroslav publishes is first novel, Stork Mountain, this month. The novel tells the story of an emigrant who returns from America to search for his grandfather, a man who disappeared three years before into the Strandja Mountains on the Bulgarian-Turkey border. The young man encounters the ecstatic Christianity of the region, the mysteries surrounding his grandfather’s life, and the shameful secrets of the past.

WordSpace sponsors Miroslav Penkov for a reading and book signing at The Wild Detectives, March 24 at 7:30 pm.
