UWindsor instructors Marty Gervais and Michael Karloff are among the presenters at this week’s edition of the Stone and Sky summer literary, music and art series. The event will start at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 22, at the quarry on Pelee Island.

The reading series, curated by English professor Karl Jirgens, will this week turn to resident writing professional Marty Gervais, a prize-winning journalist and photographer, poet laureate of Windsor, best-selling author, and publisher with Black Moss Press.

Karloff, a pianist, will join saxophonist Ray Manzerolle to perform a mixture of pop, standards, and originals as they explore hidden melodic possibilities in each song. Karloff teaches theory, composition and jazz piano in the School of Creative Arts.

Saturday’s agenda also includes a farmers’ market and jazz workshops. Learn more on the event website.
