Monsoon Voices, a live literary magazine with readings and music, comes to the Oro Valley Public Library on Saturday, July 11.

The event is set from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the library, located at 1305 W. Naranja. It is free, with donations accepted.

Monsoon Voices is a live performance of writing and music presented by local artists every eight weeks.

"We present material with a fresh perspective and a reverence for life," said Traci Moore, editor of Monsoon Voices. "Like a literary magazine, writers and musicians send in their work prior to submission deadlines, and the editors select the best material for live performances."

Up to seven writers read their poetry, fiction, personal essay and humor in six-minute segments. One musician performs two sets of two original songs each between the readings.

During a short break, and at the evening's conclusion, performers and audience members can connect and exchange books, CDs or business cards.

Since 2007, Monsoon Voices has offered "thought-provoking, uplifting entertainment for everyone, in a pleasant, smoke-free environment," a release said.

Monsoon Voices is also presented on two Saturdays, Sept. 12 and Nov. 7.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
