Copyright After Hours Press 2014, Oak Park, IL

    Nearly two years prior to his death in 2013, faithful friend and supporter of After Hours, Norbert Blei invited some of his long-time students, all accomplished writers themselves, to contribute essays to a book he intended to write about his years as a teacher at The Clearing Folk School in Door County, Wisconsin. Unfortunately, time ran out before his vision was taken to fruition.

    In the winter of 2013-14,the essays were gathered and compiled by Alice D’Alessio, Albert DeGenova, Jude Genereaux and Susan O’Leary and (in the spirit Norb foresaw)have now been published by After Hours Press as the book entitled The Professor’s Quarters.                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

    This collection stands as testimony to The  Clearing, to Norb as Teacher, and to his writer-students. The book was published Summer 2014 with profits going to the continuing “Scholarship Fund” for the Norbert Blei Week at The Clearing.
