  •  NEW YORK — Jennifer Egan’s inventive novel about the passage of time, “A Visit from the Goon Squad,” won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction Monday, honored for its “big-hearted curiosity about cultural change at warp speed.”
    Egan, 48, has been highly praised for her searching and unconventional narratives about modern angst and identity. Her other novels include “The Invisible Circus,” ‘’Look at Me” and “The Keep.”

  • “Resurrection Stories: Images of Rebirth and Renewal,” is the theme of the Second Annual Faith and Art Show, April 29-May 1 at Jemez Springs Community Presbyterian Church in the Village of Jemez Springs.
    Work in various media by local artists will be displayed in the church’s original 130-year-old sanctuary.
    The opening will be from 7-9 p.m. April 29 and includes performances by local musicians. Refreshments will be served. Show hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. April 30 and 10 a.m.-noon May 1.

  • The Wildlife Center, New Mexico’s only wildlife hospital, will have a free Annual Open House from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 30 and May 1. The Annual Open House is the one time during the year that the public is permitted to tour the intensive care unit and rehabilitation facility.
    The Wildlife Center was founded 25 years ago by Dr. Kathleen Ramsay.  As the Center looks forward to the next 25 years, a new mission statement, logo, tagline and Web site have been developed.
    The Open House is the first in a series of 25th anniversary events celebrating the new focus of “building wildlife stewardship in New Mexico.”

  • Two young singers recently set out on The Santa Fe Opera’s annual Spring Opera Tour with performances in 12 communities in New Mexico and Texas. The singers will offer free public concerts as well as daytime performances for students through April 29. They will visit Fuller Lodge at 7 p.m. Saturday.
    Participants in this year’s tour are soprano Ashley Logan, bass-baritone Alan Dunbar and pianist and music director Kirt Pavitt. Kathleen Clawson is the stage director.

  • The Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra is a good example of music spanning generations.  Members of the group, which will perform its Spring Concert April 29, range in age from 15-91. All have the same goal — to join others in performing some of the finest musical compositions written for orchestra.
