Deulen to share poetry and memoir at ‘Readings at the Nick’
An award-winning poet and memoirist will read from her current work at Linfield College.
Danielle Cadena Deulen will read on Monday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m., in the Austin Reading Room of the Jereld R. Nicholson Library.
Deulen will read from her memoir, “The Riots,” and her latest book of poetry, “Our Emotions Get Carried Away Beyond Us.” “The Riots,” which won the AWP Prize in Creative Nonfiction and the GLCA New Writers award, chronicles Deulen’s childhood and young adulthood as the eldest daughter of a Latina mother and an abusive Anglo father. In “Our Emotions Get Carried Away Beyond Us,” winner of the Barrow Street Book Contest, Deulen writes poems that are, as one reviewer dubbed them, as “superbly ambitious as they are fiercely intimate.”
Deulen is also the author of “Lovely Asunder” and “American Libretto.” Her poems and essays have appeared in journals, including The Iowa Review, The Kenyon Review, The Utne Reader, and The Missouri Review, and several anthologies, including Best New Poets and After Montaigne: Contemporary Essayists Cover the Essays.

Hanni to discuss disrupting the wine status quo
One of the first Americans to earn the Masters of Wine credential will give an upcoming lecture about wine errors, discoveries and insights as part of the Linfield Wine Lecture Series.
Tim Hanni, certified wine educator from the Society of Wine Educators, and a faculty member teaching online wine business curriculum at the Napa Valley Wine Academy and Washington State University, will present “Disrupting the Wine Status Quo: what do we really know about consumers, wine history and enjoying wine with food?” on Monday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in 201 Riley Campus Center at Linfield College.
Hanni will discuss consumer perception discoveries and insights, dramatic errors in wine history and traditions, the background and future for a new set of principles for enjoying wine with food, and how to incorporate and profit from these ideologies.
Hanni earned his Masters of Wine credential in 1990, one of the first Americans to do so. He is also a trained professional chef and has been leading research into the genetics and psychology of wine perception and preferences. He is crusading to create a deeper focus and understanding of wine consumers, revisions to sensory principles and a movement to radically change the concepts of pairing wine with food. He has lectured in more than 27 countries, teaches wine business and is a wine industry consultant.
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Aaron Williams at 503-883-2766 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wine pioneer Susan Sokol Blosser to discuss new book at Linfield
Susan Sokol Blosser, a pioneer in Oregon’s wine industry, will discuss her new book in a conversation at Linfield College.
Blosser, co-founder of Sokol Blosser Winery, will talk about her new book “The Vineyard Years: A Memoir with Recipes” on Tuesday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the Austin Reading Room of the Jereld R. Nicholson Library at Linfield College.
She will be joined by the second generation of the family business—Alison Sokol Blosser, now the CEO and co-president of Sokol Blosser Winery. The conversation will be led by Jeff Peterson, associate professor of sociology and director of the Linfield Center for the Northwest.
Blosser, a wine industry pioneer, community leader, environmental advocate and author, is a contemporary Oregon icon. When women were rarely decision makers in business or agriculture, Blosser distinguished herself in both. Sokol Blosser Winery, under her presidency, became known as one of the most innovative and respected wineries in the state. She holds a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Oregon Wine Board and was the first non-Californian woman inducted into the national Women for WineSense Hall of Fame.

Paddock talk to highlight heroine who saved Norway with a lur
Joan Paddock, professor of music, will demonstrate the lur, an obscure Scandinavian trumpet, and share the story of heroine Prillar Guri in an upcoming event as part of the Linfield College Faculty Lecture Series.
Paddock will present “The Lur of Prillar Guri” on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. in the Fred Meyer Lounge in Riley Hall at Linfield.
In 1612, Scottish mercenaries invaded Norway and journeyed east to join Swedish forces in the Kalmar War against the Danish-Norse kingdom, destroying all in their path. It was unclear who could stop them until a haunting sound made by a young woman with a type of wooden trumpet called a “lur” saved her people.
Paddock will discuss the background and construction of the lur, as well as share the story of the heroine, Prillar Guri, who sounded the lur to save her people from Scottish invasion during the Kalmar War in 1612 at the Battle of Kringen.
Paddock, at Linfield since 1994, is the first woman to receive a doctorate in trumpet performance from Indiana University. Paddock received the Emmy Award from the National Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Performer’s Certificate from Indiana University. She was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to Norway, and studied at the Norwegian State Academy of Music. She is a trumpeter with Halcyon Trio Oregon, a Bach Trumpet Clinician for the Selmer Music Corporation, a 27-year member of the trumpet section with Oregon’s Britt Festival Orchestra and an “on call” trumpeter with the Oregon Symphony and Portland Opera.
