Come to Carmichael’s during Olde Tyme Christmas for a book signing with Kentucky
Presenting his new memoir, ‘Kentucky Cured: Fifty Years in Kentucky Journalism’, the Bluegrass broadcast guru, Al Smith, will be on hand at Carmichael’s Bookstore this Saturday, December 8th, at 1pm. Join him for a special signing as part of Frankfort Avenue’s Olde Tyme Christmas celebration.
I’m going to get existential today, and there is nothing you can do about it – ponder that line for a moment – so, for those who would like to skip the Erin Day in the Erin Day Article, the following is for you:  Al Smith, a local broadcast journalist of Kentucky fame for...

Storyteller Mary Hamilton spins some spooky Kentucky folktales this weekend at B
Touting her book, ‘Kentucky Folktales: Revealing Stories, Truths, and Outright Lies’, author and storyteller Mary Hamilton will be on hand this Saturday, December 8th, at The Summit Barnes & Noble. Join her at noon for a signing and a spooky reading – just to further the Holiday spirit, of course.
So, downtown was on fire this morning.  That’s good.Disembarking from my TARC bus – my glorious morning steed – brought a haze of heather gray at the corner of 5th and Market, spilling out from the building where Vincenzo’s happens to live.  This was new.  I...

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,...

Christmas starts at Carmichael’s: Buy local for your favorite bookworms with Car
The red ribbon was savagely cut last evening (seriously, kids, I’m totally judging you if you hit stores yesterday at all for anything other than extra cranberry sauce), and the Holiday shopping season is open. Give locally, give literary with the Carmichael’s Bookstore 2012 Holiday Catalogue.
What were you up to at 6am this morning, love-a-doves?  I’ll venture some deductive reasoning (whoa, nelly!) and fan out some sound options for us, here:Perhaps you were safe and snuggled in your bed-and-nest-place with a tummy still making little gurgle noises.  This is a good...

Author M. Scotty Lamkin presents his new book ‘Chance is the Providence of Adven
The retired Alaskan travel guide will sign the new book cataloging his adventures in the Alaskan wilderness. Along with his friend – and sometimes travel companion – Denny Drum, M. Scotty Lamkin will be at The Summit location of Barnes & Noble tonight, Monday, November 19th at 2pm.
There are any number of tangents here that I could follow through to fruition.  This is an easy one to sew up, shine up and wrap up nicely for your pre-turkey sensibilities.  For the quivering and daunting kick-off to the “Holiday Season” looming at the other end of the week....
