Great Plains writer Marilyn June Coffey has written three books, 600 poems, and dozens of articles and stories. A trained journalist (B.A., University of Nebraska, 1959) and creative writer (M.F.A., Brooklyn College, 1981), she has produced work that includes a popular memoir, a record-setting novel, and a prize-winning poem. Her poem, Pricksong, reviewed in the Los Angeles Times Book Review and Newsweek, won a national Pushcart Prize. Coffey's novel Marcella made literary history. It was the first novel written in English to use female autoeroticism as a main theme. Gloria Steinem called it "an important part of the truth telling by and for women. In 1989, Coffey's memoir, Great Plains Patchwork, appeared. The New York Times called it entertaining and insightful. Atlantic Monthly featured a chapter as its cover story. Natural History bought two chapters, American Heritage one. Harper & Row, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, and Harcourt Brace Jovanovich printed excerpts. Known as a prose stylist, Coffey received a Master Alumnus award for distinction in the field of writing from the University of Nebraska in 1977. Since 1987, the UN-L Archives has collected forty boxes of Coffey's papers in its Mari Sandoz room. In 1991, Coffey investigated the orphan train movement, developing three programs for the Nebraska Humanities Council. One became the second most popular of the 232 programs underwritten by NHC and spurred her to write Mail-Order Kid. Now retired, Coffey taught writing at Boston University, Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and Fort Hays State University in Kansas for thirty-four years, twice earning tenure. She became an interpretive reader/performer, appearing on local radio stations, statewide TV, and before more than 130 groups in twelve states, from Maine to Texas.
Her new book, Thieves, Rascals, & Sore Losers is available for pre-order.
What kind of statement can the Wisconsin Badgers make with a victory Saturday against the Nebraska Huskers? Can Melvin Gordon continue rolling over defenses and stay in contention for the Heisman Trophy? Can Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy, along with the Badgers' wide receivers, help keep the Huskers' defense honest to allow the Badgers to run wild?
We'll also recap several former Badgers' big days in the NFL. Chris Borland has 35 tackles in two games, and J.J. Watt's on TWO magazine covers this week!
Plus, we'll recap the Green Bay Packers' big victory over the Chicago Bears -- can they keep it up against former Badgers Chris Maragos, Beau Allen and the 7-2 Philadelphia Eagles?

A lot of stuff happened to Penn State basketball this week, and it was mostly good! Sure, the Nittany Lions kicked off its recent stretch of games losing to Maryland in College Park, but the squad was able to bounce back with an ugly and well-deserved win over Nebraska. However, the biggest news of the week came when former PSU guard Tim Frazier got called up to the Philadelphia 76ers and became the school's first alumnus to make the NBA since Calvin Booth in 2009. Bill and Chad will discuss everything of and related to Penn State hoops this week, and are joined by Yahoo's Sam Cooper. Get excited: it's time for another episode of the best damn Penn State basketball podcast on the web.
The Nebraska Beer Blog, (www.nebraskabeerblog.com) discusses the state of craft brewing in Nebraska. These can include our wonderful craft brewers, taverns where craft beer is a specialty, dates and information on upcoming craft brew festivals, and even a listing of suppliers to home brewers.
Nate Bell is an avid beer connoisseur, and he enthusiastically samples and critiques the upcoming and seasonal releases from our craft brewers.
Since (in my opinion), craft brewing and great live music go hand in hand, we're also going to explore the great little pubs where you can experience both.
