Clare Moorhouse, the American wife of a high-ranking diplomat in Paris, is arranging an official dinner crucial to her husband's career. As she shops for fresh stalks of asparagus and works out the menu and seating arrangements, her day is complicated by the unexpected arrival of her son and a random encounter with a Turkish man, whom she discovers is a suspected terrorist. Like Virginia Woolf did in Mrs. Dalloway, Anne Korkeakivi brilliantly weaves the complexities of an age into an act as deceptively simple as hosting a dinner party.

The Unexpected Guest is a play in two acts that was created in a playwriting class through the partnership of the National MS Society: Oregon Chapter and Well Arts, a nonprofit organization that explores, develops, and practices creativity as a means of wellness. The four authors learned playwriting to develop a production that would explore their personal experience with multiple sclerosis and turn their stories into educational outreach for those who are unfamiliar with the experience of MS. The play tells the story of receiving a diagnosis of MS, sharing with friends and family the diagnosis, and the day-to-day challenges of living with the diagnosis. Significantly, the play explores the emotional realm of debilitating illness and the reflection of society back on those living with these experiences.

In this stirring memoir, discover the timely story of a couple that takes in a homeless man and the life-altering effect the experience has on all three of them. For years, Michael Bailey wandered the streets of L.A., preaching to his people. On occasion, he'd share an open mic night with Michael Konik, an L.A. based writer who befriended him from a distance. Konik offered a curious and sympathetic ear, particularly when Mike lamented having to be so far away from his wife (who he claimed was Selena Gomez). As the pair began to trust one another, confusion and distance gave way to true friendship, and what came next astounded them both. In this poignant memoir from bestselling author Michael Konik, love takes on profound new dimensions in this story of friendship, family, and the meaning of home. Konik offered food when his unlikely new friend came by, a pair of pants when it was clear he needed them, and wondered how much he, as a person, owed the troubled Bailey--a question all of America faces, with a total of 552,830 people experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2018. When Konik and his wife offered Mike a place in their home, handy as he turned out to be with household projects, they were delighted with his transformation from guest to Caretaker. Gone was the man who gave sermons about his estate next door to Kanye West, and the man drifting through life, wondering at his purpose and what was missing. What each never saw coming was their own transformation and the lessons they'd learn about what it means not only to be good people, but to be human.
