After collaborating with the editor of The Wedge‘s Nancy O’Donnell Hale on stories covering the defacing of the sculpture of Nathaniel Rochester in Nathaniel Square, I’ve been reading The Wedge more attentively. During the pandemic, The Wedge has only published online, but hopes to return to print.October/November issue is chock full of interesting features. For examples, Nancy reports on a new book by one of her MCC colleagues, Kathy O’Shea, that examines Kathy’s lifelong battle with migraines through the lens of art. Rev. Matthew Martin Nickoloff discusses how faith underlies his activism. Patti Giglio informs us of the Rochester connection with Jack the Ripper. Aeolea Wendy Burwell and Peter Doughty show how to harness astrological energetic impulses.
Nancy also kindly re-published a slightly shorter version of our piece on the pantry located in the Calvary St. Andrews Church on Ashland Street, The South Wedge Food Program helps people through the pandemic and beyond.
Thanks, Nancy for publicizing this important program, one especially vital during the pandemic.
In 2013, Nancy published my book review of former Rochestarian Bill Peters’ Maverick Jetpants In The City Of Quality
