UAlbany announced a new series -- "The Creative Life" -- this week that's bringing Joyce Carol Oates and Savion Glover to the university this September and October. Blurbage:

The Creative Life: A Conversation Series at UAlbany is an exciting new initiative of the New York State Writers Institute, UAlbany Performing Arts Center and University Art Museum, all of which are housed and function on the main campus of the University at Albany. Presented by the University at Albany Foundation, the series features live onstage interviews conducted by WAMC's Joe Donahue with artists of national and international prominence in conversation about their creative inspiration, their craft, their careers and the demands of sustaining an artistic practice over time. A question and answer period will close all of the programs.

The event with author Joyce Carol Oates is Thursday, September 15 at 7:30 pm in the UAlbany Performing Arts Center on the uptown campus.

The event with tap dance king Savion Glover is Saturday, October at 1 pm in Page Hall on the downtown campus. (And, as mentioned, Glover's also set to perform at The Egg October 15.)

Both events are free and open to the public.

UAlbany says it's planning for events of this type for the spring.

This is potentially good news for St. Josephs. I walk around it 2 or 3 times a week and the last few years the deterioration has seemed to accelerate. She will be looking right at it everyday from her front windows.
