A New Beginning

A New Beginning

This fall the Writer’s Guild at Delta College went through some changes. Sarah Antinora, a newly hired English professor, became its advisor.  In addition, the guild has new officers and new layout and copy editors. 

The Artifact, the literary magazine published by the Writers' Guild since 2006, has been given a new name – Artifact Nouveau.  Copies will be distributed locally just before the Spring Semester and will be available on campus the first week of classes.

Artifact Nouveau continues to look for quality content (writings, art, photographs etc.) for future issues.  Send items for consideration to artifactsjdc@gmail.com

A Look At Diwali - The Festival Of Lights

A Look At Diwali - The Festival Of Lights

My husband and I finally attended Diwali, or the Festival of Lights as it is known, held at the McNair High School Auditorium.  This year marked the 20th year of the event sponsored by the Indian Association of San Joaquin County.  Diwali is the largest holiday in India, as important to Hindus as Christmas is to Christians, a harvest celebration held in the fall in October or November (Note: this event was held on November 8). 

From its name I expected abundant lights.  Instead there was an amazing night of dance and musical performances and stunning outfits worn by a large group of performers (many of them children) with tasty food available as a fundraiser during intermission.
