m n CAPE GAZE'Iq-Friday(May 4 - Monday, May 7,2007, 119 Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild to meet May 15 in Lewes The Rehoboth Beach Writers' Guild will host a Night of Literary Prose, Poetry and Song, which is free and open to the public, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 15 at Fish On! in Five Points, Lewes. The theme of the May event, Mysteries & Secrets stems from the notion that every secret has a story behind it, and every mystery is a story unfinished. This, more often than not, is where the writer's work begins. The Rehoboth Beach Writers' Guild, a nonprofit association ded- icated to fostering the literary arts in southern coastal Delaware has, for over a year, been partnering with Matt Haley, who owns Fish On!, Blue Coast Seafood Grill and Northeast Seafood Kitchen, to present these readings. Fish On! manager Jamie Waters will take part in the reading, starting the event by sharing some of his work as well as a seasonally appropriate recipe from the restaurant. The writers and musicians in the May 15 event will, in some way, address the issue of mystery in their choice of material, whether it's an actual mystery writer read- ing from her own published mys- tery; a lawyer sharing the account of her time spent with a death-row prisoner; a memoirist writing about the mysteries of illness; or a poet describing secrets of the human heart. In addition to a songwriter who will perform a number of his own pieces, readers for the May event include poets Michael Blaine, a recent recipient of a Delaware Division of the Arts Grant for Emerging Artists in Poetry, and Debby Creasy, who in 2006, was awarded a Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation Fellowship to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Amherst, Va. She has twice been selected to participate in workshop retreats with Delaware's Poet Laureate, Fleda Brown, and her poems were included in the Poetry in Public Places traveling exhibit in Sussex County in 2005. Her poems have appeared in "Tar River Poetry," and "Delaware Beach Life" and are forthcoming in other publications. Prose writers include attorney Judy Catterton, who served as a prosecutor in -Montgomery County, Md. where she was also Chief of a Major Offender Bureau. After 16 years in private practice with a focus on criminal defense work, Catterton went into semire- tirement and moved to Rehoboth. In addition to being the first woman in Maryland to be made a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, Catterton has taught at both at the Washington College of Law (American University), and the University of Maryland. Currently she is a con- sultant to the Maryland Office of the Public Defenders, where she regularly lectures, and she offers courses at both Wilmington College in Rehoboth, and the Academy for Lifelong Learning in Lewes Also reading will be writers' guild member, Jan Perry, who under the pen name of Perri Nash writes the Cassie Doolin Mystery Series to which Perry brings an intimate knowledge of Washington, D.C.. Perry is cur- rently compiling a collection of short stories to be published under her own name. Writers' Guild member, poet, and photographer = Christina Weaver, will also join the line-up. Weaver regularly writes articles and reviews for "Coastal Point," and has recently completed a memoir, "Freed to Be Flawed'" about a flawed medical diagnosis and the nearly catastrophic effects of this on her family and on her- self. The Evening of Literary Prose and Poetry represent the guild's focus on making literature more accessible to a variety of people in the community by presenting it in an elegant and relaxed atmosphere. Attendees are invited to dine dur- ing the reading, sampling the food for which Fish On! has received numerous awards.

The Cape May-Lewes Ferry now has 7A.M. Play Longer! Symphony Continued from page 118 make great music for the enjoy- ment of the audience. It showed particularly well in the flawless interpretation of the long pizzicati score in the third movement by the violin, viola and bass sections. Their delicate, sensitive plucking of the strings, not a note out of line, was so perfectly synchro- nized, suggesting music and dance all at once, that it brought smiles of wonderment and delight among the audience. After the concert, a large num- ber of patrons held a 10th anniver- sary party, with dinner, silent auc- tion and chances at winning four pieces of diamond jewelry donat- ed by local jewelers to benefit the MSO. It was a lot of fun, a great time and a very special fundraiser for the MSO. It will be hard to wait for the next concert series to begin. It is awaited with great anticipatiOn. The season finale was simply breathtaking. Benichou was spec- tacular, living the music so intensely, in perfect harmony with his exceptional musicians. As expressed by a long, enthusiastic standing ovation, everyone in the audience was overwhelmed by an experience they will not soon for- get. There was an intangible feel- ing of witnessing something real- ly special happening that day - a maestro and his new generation of talented musicians rising on their way to a higher level and a steadily bigger future in the world of music.
