THE GOLDEN WHISTLELibrary Author Talk
Dr. Jim Burson, former Muskingum University Head Basketball Coach and Professor Emeritus of Physical and Health Education
3:30 p.m., Boyd Science Center 336

Coach Burson’s latest book, The Golden Whistle: Going Beyond: The Journey to Coaching Success is written from his many years of experience and expertise in working with young athletes. Written as a fable, the book goes on a journey into the heart of a coach's world, featuring Ted Faylor, the renowned Golden Whistle coach who is at the pinnacle of his career,  and Little K, his ambitious young student-assistant who knows he can be a great coach and is sure he has all the answers. But the novice coach has a lot to learn.

WORDS WORDS WORDSWords, Words, Words, a play by David Ives
Directed by Instructor in Theatre John Kuhn
Thursday, February 12 through Saturday, February 14 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, February 15 at 2:00 p.m.
Sandra Wolfe Thompson Theatre, Philip and Betsey Caldwell Hall

TICKETS:  $5 each, available at the door prior to each performance or by calling the theatre box office at 740-826-8376.  Muskingum University students, faculty and staff are admitted free with their Muskingum University identification card.

A one-act play written by David Ives for his collection of six one-act plays, All in the Timing, the play tells the story of  Kafka, Milton and Swift, three intelligent chimpanzees who are put in a cage together under the experimenting eye of the never-seen Dr. Rosenbaum, a scientist testing the hypothesis that three apes hitting keys at random on typewriters for an infinite amount of time will almost surely produce Hamlet.  The show's title is a reference to a line from Shakespeare's play. The performance comprises the ape characters humorously confronting and conversing with each other in order to understand the purpose of the exercise put upon them.

Born in Cambridge, Scott Navicky returns to the area to share his book, Humboldt: Or, The Power of Positive Thinking.  Humboldt is content to spend his life “outside amongst the oxygen and unhurried hydrocarbons.” But when his father’s farm is threatened with foreclosure, Humboldt is forced to save it by enrolling in college, leading him on an epic absurdist adventure through Washington politics, New York performance art, Boston bluebloods, post-Katrina New Orleans, multiple murders and holy resurrections.
