Wear your Star of David with delight as Louisville's Jewish Community Center presents readings from prominent writers Lisa Baron, Jane Portnoy, Melissa Faye Greene and Myla Goldberg.
One of my favorite phrases (okay, maybe its reached “catchphrase” status) remains “books are culture.”  A simple sentence.  Three words, one subject with an accompanying verb and descriptive noun; by definition it is a metaphor.  Yet, its weight as a...

Toting his latest book, Vanishing Point: Not a Memoir, author Ander Monson will share his work and insight into the modern phenomenon of "The Memoir"

Meet the mother of modern erotica. Follow the sordid business of Beate Uhse in Elizabeth Heineman's, Before Porn Was Legal: The Erotica Empire of Beate Uhse. Join Heineman this Thursday, September 22nd, at Carmichael's Bookstore for a truly sexy book signing.
There is no room on my shelves for puritans (stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Arthur Miller do not count).  Worldviews that stifle a woman’s concept of her own sexuality and seek to demonize what should be pleasurable, are best relegated to the tinderbox, in my opinion.  But this...
