In campus news, The Peel, App State’s literature and arts review magazine, will be having a release of their spring 2023 edition at the Nth Gallery off of King Street. The Nth Degree Gallery, located at 683 W King St, is home to artists studios, so it’s a pretty perfect fit for hosting the art of the Peel! The event will last from 6pm to 8pm on Friday, April 28th. Swing by, grab a copy, and see what App State’s writers and artists have been up to!
Locally, the Appalachian Theatre of the High Country will be celebrating a very important holiday next week. Of course, I’m talking about the double whammy of University Reading Day AND May the 4th, universally recognized as “May the Fourth Be With You” Star Wars Day. There will be a screening of A New Hope, the first Star Wars movie, at 7pm, on Thursday, May 4th. Get your Jedi on for the most intergalactic time of the year!
Nationally, Pope Francis has given women the right to vote in the next meeting of bishops at the Vatican. According to NPR, For 2000 years, women have been denied a say in the decision making process of the Catholic Church. Francis has vowed to change that, at least in this voting body, ushering in five religious sisters to sit astride five priests in the Synod of Bishops, as well as 70 non-Bishop participants, of which half will be women and Franics hopes more than a few will be young people. A welcome change for one of the oldest institutions in the West.
