The Wedge Publishes “South Wedge Food Program Helps People through Pandemic”

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.

(see More from Nancy O’Donnell Hale on Nathaniel Rochester: “Defaced, erased, should statue be replaced?”)

The 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 inderlies 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.

POSTSCRIPT

About The Author

dkramer3@naz.edu

Welcome to Talker of the Town! My name is David Kramer. I have a Ph.D in English and teach at Keuka College. I am a former and still active Fellow at the Nazareth College Center for Public History. Over the years, I have taught at Monroe Community College, the Rochester Institute of Technology and St. John Fisher College. I have published numerous Guest Essays, Letters, Book Reviews and Opinion pieces in The New York Times, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, the Buffalo News, the Rochester Patriot, the Providence Journal, the Providence Business News, the Brown Alumni Magazine, the New London Day, the Boston Herald, the Messenger Post Newspapers, the Wedge, the Empty Closet, and the CITY.  My poetry appears in The Criterion: An International Journal in English and Rundenalia and my academic writing in War, Literature and the Arts and Twentieth Century Literary Criticism. Starting in February 2013, I wrote for three Democratic and Chronicle  blogs, "Make City Schools Better," "Unite Rochester," and the "Editorial Board." When my tenure at the D & C  ended, I wanted to continue conversations first begun there. And start new ones.  So we created this new space, Talker of the Town, where all are are invited to join. I don’t like to say these posts are “mine.” Very few of them are the sole product of my sometimes overheated imagination. Instead, I call them partnerships and collaborations. Or as they say in education, “peer group work.” Talker of the Town might better be Talkers of the Town. The blog won’t thrive without your leads, text, pictures, ideas, facebook shares, tweets, comments and criticisms.
