Rediscover Lincoln through his childhood with the The Filson at Jeffersonville C
Keith Erekson, the author of ‘Everybody’s History: Indiana’s Lincoln and the Quest to Reclaim a President’s Past’, will present on the little known early years of our country’s greatest president. Rediscover Lincoln with The Filson Historical Society at the Jeffersonville Carnegie Library tomorrow, Thursday, November 29th, at noon.
I feel I would be remiss to cheapen Lincoln with gimmicks.  What kind of ridiculous metaphor or pointless rumination can I use to make a slapdash word-painting that only loosely ties into perhaps mildly-serious literary subject matter? There are good contenders today, folks.  Oh,...

Cooler weather calls for rich words. Drop by Carmichael’s Bookstore tonight, Wednesday, October 10th, as local poets Maureen Morehead and Sue Terry Driskell present their newest literary releases at 7pm.
I just finished a very delicious slice of pumpkin cheesecake.  It’s one of those rare and perfect moments in human existence – when the experience is so harmoniously wonderful that you must simply close your eyes and be released.  Dessert is very sensual.  I almost always...

Work Writing: Carmichael’s presents work-themed anthology for Labor Day
Hey, you know what I’ll be doing on Labor Day?? That’s right, no rest for the wear, folks. Whether you’ve bbq plans or not, stop by Carmichael’s Bookstore, tomorrow, August 31st, at 7pm as a merry band of essayists present the collection All the Livelong Day: Motif Anthologies, Volume 3.
I don’t really like talking about work.  I am not my job.  That which fills my purse (not) is so far from my passion, and the longer I labor for negligible pennies and wallow in high levels of cortisol, the more my mind wanders into quixotic gardens of outlandish fantasy. ...

Sarabande Books brings poets Mark Yakich and Andrea Cohen to 21c tonight
Oh man! Has it really been a whole month since we’ve talked about poetry pants? Zip those suckers up and let’s ride! Tonight, Monday, August 27th, Sarabande Books will host poets Mark Yakich and Andrea Cohen as part of this month’s 21c Reading Series.
“Tonic” is a very interesting word.  I think about things like this.  As a noun, it doesn’t get much the same kind of love as other more exotic parts of speech: adjectives enjoy a spicy existence adding nuance; verbs employ a springboard for life living.  But so...
