Hip, but not necessarily a hipster: essayist Rooney will read at Saint Rose.

Art Beat

TUNE IN TONIGHT Frequency North, the visiting writers series at the College of Saint Rose, will welcome two guests tonight. Alexander Chee, winner of a 2004 NEA Fellowship in fiction—and a bunch of other awards there is no space to detail—will read from his works, including, presumably his first novel (Edinburgh) and his soon-to-be-published second novel, Queen of the Night. Guest number two will be poet-essayist Kathleen Rooney, whose latest collection, For You, For You I Am Trilling These Songs was described as “smart and subtly honed” by Publishers Weekly. The reading will take place tonight (Thursday, Nov. 11) at 7:30 PM in the Standish Room in the Saint Rose Events and Athletics Center (420 Western Ave., Albany.) It’s free. For more info, call 454-5102.

TUNE IN TOMORROW Knowing that this will only whet your appetite for all things literary, you can go to the University at Albany tomorrow night for a New York State Writers Institute event with philosopher, scholar and author Kwame Anthony Appiah. He will be reading from his latest book, The Honor Code: How Moral Revolutions Happen, which “explores the dynamics of social changes that have led to the emancipation of women, slaves and other disenfranchised groups.” The reading will be at 7:30 PM in the Performing Arts Center Recital Hall (University at Albany, 1400 Washington Ave., Albany), and admission is free. For more info, call 442-5620.

IT MAY BE HUNDREDS OF YEARS OLD, BUT IT’S NEW TO YOU Capitol Chamber Artists are always finding something that’s been mysteriously overlooked, and tomorrow night’s concert offers more intriguing rarities. This time, the composer is Franz Liszt, and in addition to some well-known Liszt rearrangements of works by Bach and Charles Phillippe Lafont, they will perform the “first publication” of Die Zelle in Nonnenwerth for violin. As is their custom, they—Mary Lou Saetta, violin, Irvin Gilman, flute, Aniko Szokody, fortepiano, and Andre O’Neil, cello—will perform this well-chosen program of chamber music on period instruments. The concert will be at 8 PM at the First Congregational Church in Albany (405 Quail St.), with a “preconcert recital” at 7 PM. Tickets are $16 general, $8 students.
