Milk Like Sugar



This weekend SUNY Plattsburgh’s Theatre department is putting on a production of Kirsten Greenidge’s play “Milk Like Sugar.”  Its opening show this Thursday was fantastic.  The play features three young girls who have made a pregnancy pact, not fully understanding the severity their actions.  The play follows Annie as she searches for a way to live the best way she can.  It shows us what people make of the lives and situations they have been given.

The production was captivating with both funny and serious moments;  it had us laughing and feeling for the characters.  The actors and crew did a great job and I would recommend this show to anyone who can make it to campus this weekend.  There will be three more shows: Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 and Sunday afternoon at 2:00.  Tickets are three dollars for Plattsburgh students, nine for faculty, seniors, and students, and eleven for general admission.  Enjoy!

Books, Not Eyes, Are the Windows to the Soul



For many of us, books are among our most treasured possessions. Books are our escape, our adventures, our dreams, and our assistance when times are hard. Bookshelves hold our treasured possessions and yet set them out for the world to see because books are an expression and an extension of who we are. The ZPlatt Staff and friends have gathered pictures of our bookshelves in order to show you what we love; we display our treasures for you to see! Please feel free to comment or send us a picture of your bookshelves so we can add yours as well!

My own bookshelf used to belong to my father. It’s a heavy, real mahogany bookshelf and it has become a place where I honor my father and my love of books.
