Heading South: Bestselling author and ‘NY Times’ columnist Gail Collins brings ‘
Join writer Gail Collins in an intriguing discussion about the Lone Star state and conservative political climate change (ha!) this Thursday, June 28th at the Louisville Free Public Library at 7pm.
I do not care much for chewing over politics.  While I was once an admittedly voracious and bombastic defensive liberal, I’ve found that raising my blood pressure with political foils over issues of great personal passion is not good exercise.  Waggling tongues will always waggle,...

Join professor, writer and spiritual thinker James Grote as he shares his new release, ‘Medieval Literacy: A Compendium of Medieval Knowledge with the Guidance of C.S. Lewis’ tonight, Thursday, June 21st, at A Reader’s Corner Bookstore at 6pm.

Storytime doesn’t need to end with kindergarten. Get in on the tradition as The Little Loomhouse presents music, demonstrations and storytelling from eleven talented locals this Saturday, June 2nd, at 11am.
As much as I treasure the soft and supple physical skin of my beloved books, their prominence in our human history is a relatively newfangled innovation.  Before every plebeian on the planet was hip to the literacy jive – and long before reading became vogue (did this actually happen...
