BY BARBARA HOBENS
@ VOL 5 ON MAR 27, 2014

Everyone knows who William Shakespeare is, but are the facts about him true? Barbara Hobens does not think so and in fact denounces him as the true writer of all the infamous classic plays and writings. Rather she gives convincing evidence on how Edward de Vere is likely the Shakespeare we all thought we knew.

Through a Glass Lightly

BY AMY ANDERSON
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 05, 2015

Less that 2 weeks before this event Amy Anderson learned that there would be glass art on display in the gallery. She put together this presentation that explores all of the ways we interact with glass - emotionally, spiritually, physically, and many more. I guess all that time spent in libraries (see her previous PK) has paid off.

The Most Mysterious Book In the World

BY JAY HILL
@ VOL 8 ON JUL 31, 2015

"The script, the text, the language that appears in this document, appears nowhere else on earth. To this day, nobody knows the meaning even a single word of it."

In a world where so few codes remain unbroken and the secrets of so many ancient, obscure writing systems have been revealed, one medieval manuscript remains completely shrouded in mystery. A software developer and organizer for PechaKucha Night AshevilleJay Hill gave this brief history of the Voynich Manuscript in "The Most Mysterious Book in the World" at PechaKucha Night Asheville Vol 8: "The Art of Science."
