Best Bets for the Week of Nov. 14-20


Thursday

Do You Read Me?: Some of the world's top authors will take part in the annual Writers Harvest, a nationwide poetry and prose slam that raises money to fight hunger. The St. Louis version, at Washington University's West Campus Center, features a roster of writers including Antonio Skarmeta, the Chilean novelist who penned "Burning Patience," the inspiration for the film "Il Postino" ("The Postman"), plus poet Allison Funk, novelist Ursula Hegi, travel writer Eddy Harris and others. Admission is $10. The action starts at 8 p.m. More info: 935-5576.

Because of the break, Ball says that the new abstractionism cannot be seen as a continuation of the past. He hopes to persuade us with his exhibition of the work of nine contemporary abstractionists a grouped as "Reconditioned Abstraction" a that opens on Friday at the Forum for Contemporary Art. The kickoff reception is from 7-9 p.m. Ball will present a gallery talk on Saturday morning at 11. All events are free and the show continues through Jan. 4. The Forum is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10-5. More info: 535-4660. Saturday Sax Facts: If saxophone is your passion, head west to Columbia for the only Missouri appearance by the World Saxophone Quartet. …
