Ference Correction
Staff
 
Contrary to what was posted here last week, Archbishop Dolan's interview of Fr. Damian Ference about his essay "Why Vocation Programs Don't Work" will air on Thursday, August 18th, at 12 noon Eastern Time on SiriusXM channel 129, rather than on August 11th as had been previously stated.
Ference on Vocations
Staff
 
Recently, Fr. Damian Ference, whose essays have appeared many times in Dappled Things (most recently in the Easter 2011 edition), published an interesting article on Homiletic and Pastoral Review on "Why Vocations Programs Don't Work." He will be talking about it tomorrow (August 11) at noon on SiriusXM satellite radio with Archbishop Timothy Dolan on channel 129.

Percy\'s Birthday
Staff
 
Today is Walker Percy's birthday, and to celebrate the event (along with the 50th anniversary of the publication of The Moviegoer), our friends at the Korrektiv blog (who some might not uncharitably describe as Percy nuts) have invited various authors, including some DT favorites, to share their musings on the man and his work. Stop by their site during the next few days to read the pieces. Perhaps you'll be inspired to give The Moviegoer another read!
Crisis Returns
Staff
 
Readers may be pleased to know that Crisis, the fine magazine founded by Ralph McInerny, is back on the air after having morphed for a few years into the website InsideCatholic.com. Welcome back Crisis!

Staff
 
Dappled Things has nominated two poems by Stephen Milne, "After" and "The Greenwich Observatory," for the prestigious Best New Poets anthology. Congratulations to Mr. Milne and best wishes to him as his excellent poems are considered.
New Pilgrim Journal
Staff
 
DT favorite Dena Hunt has a story in the new Pilgrim Journal, a recently released online journal that we think is worthy of your attention. The issue also includes some very interesting essays, poems, and more. We are pleased to see that like DT, they have taken to naming their issues by the liturgical calendar. We hope the trend catches on!
Aparicio Interview
Staff
 
Nick Ripatrazone interviews Dappled Things president Bernardo Aparicio García at The Fine Delight, a truly fine new website that explores those two most delightful of subjects, the Catholic faith and literature.
Flarfy Things
Staff
 
Harriet the blog of Poetry magazine, recently featured a post criticizing an article by Micah Mattix (whose poetry appeared in a recent issue of DT) at The Public Discourse, in which he, in turn, criticizes "flarf" poetry as ideological and faddish, and calls for a return to "natural" forms. DT assistant editor Meredith Wise weighs in on the matter at her blog, For Keats' Sake.
Keillor reads Potter
Staff
 
"You and I," a poem from Jonathan Potter's beautiful collection, House of Words (reviewed in our Mary, Queen of Angels 2010 edition), will be read on the radio this Monday the 28th by Garrison Keillor on The Writer's Almanac. The impatient may click here, however, to travel in time and hear the poem now. Poems by Mr. Potter are forthcoming in Dappled Things.
