Sam Quinones will be speaking on his new book and the American opioid epidemic Monday at Worcester Tech.

Sunday, April 9 — Canal District ArtWalk, noon-5 p.m., various locations, 50-96 Water St.  Just to be clear, if you’re planning to attend the season’s first of this popular monthly series you’ll be doing the walking; the art stays put — for the most part. Now that that’s out of the way, on to the really important details: More than 40 local artists, musicians, poets and street performers will be dotting the sidewalks; there will be a live art demonstration; henna and face painting; and even a Pawtucket Red Sox ticket giveaway.

Put on by the Canal District Alliance, the ArtWalks, which started last year, have outgrown their humble weeknight beginnings and require the big stage — and free metered parking — of Sunday afternoons. Come back for more the second Sunday of each month through October (rain dates are the following/third Sundays).

Wednesday, April 12 — Elizabeth Bishop biographer Megan Marshall, 7:30 p.m., Higgins University Center, Clark University, 950 Main St.  Elizabeth Bishop, regarded as “one of the most important American poets” of the 20th century, was born in Worcester and is buried in Hope Cemetery. Her life’s journey, indeed, took her around the world and back again. Her father having died before she was a year old — and her grief-stricken mother committed by the time she was 5 — Bishop bounced from Canada to the North Shore before attending Vassar College in New York and traveling extensively to Europe and North Africa, and settling in Brazil for 14 years.

Along the way she earned her reputation as a leading poet, eventually winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1956. Megan Marshall, who also won a Pulitzer Prize for her biography of Margaret Fuller, probably can tell Bishop’s remarkable story much better (as she did in her most recent book, “Elizabeth Bishop: A Miracle for Breakfast”) — so, check out this free, public discussion put on by the Friends of Goddard Library. A 7 p.m. reception with the author costs $10; call 508-793-7573 for tickets.

The Purple Knights, off to a 1-10 start, only wish more of their games had been postponed.

Junior pitcher Kendal Roy of Grafton — who won back-to-back state titles with the Indians — is the staff ace, with a 2.68 ERA, 6 complete games and 37 strikeouts to 9 walks in 49-⅔ innings. Junior first baseman Stephanie Menard — a Northeast-10 first-teamer last season — was batting .436 (17 of 39) with an 1.106 OPS heading into the weekend, while senior outfielder Ashley Clark toted a .327 average (16 of 49) with a team-best 8 runs and 7 RBI.
