Weekend watch: Blue Elephant Bazaar


Best known as the co-founder of Trollwood Performing Arts School, John Marks has devoted his efforts to different creative endeavors since he stepped down. His most recent is the publication of his book, “Are You Listening,” a collection of observations and lessons learned while working with kids, many of which were at-risk or special needs. A book talk at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Spirit Room, 111 Broadway, Fargo, caps off a day of events Marks organized as a launch party/fundraiser.

The day starts from 2 to 5 p.m. with a bazaar-inspired sale of Marks and his wife, Debora Roriz’s, goods acquired on world travels, followed by an Indian dance performance at 5:15 p.m. From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., a dinner buffet from India Palace is available for $20 per person, with a cash bar available. Dinner reservations are required. After that, Marks reads from and discusses his book, his travels and his life. (701) 237-0230.
