Carmichael’s hosts former Louisvillian and debut novelist, Kristen Simmons
Add another name to the list of Louisvillians in the limelight (and order one of those big ol’ posters, too). Rising young adult novelist, Kristen Simmons, brings her breakout book to Carmichael’s Bookstore this Thursday, March 8th at 7pm.
With the end of the world only a mere 290 days away (ask any self-respecting Mayan), the idea of the “dystopian society” or “post-apocalyptic wasteland” is a topic that is perhaps bearing its first weight on the hearts and minds of the Earth’s citizens.  Ahhh...

Literary Libation: Author and bourbon aficionado, Chet Zoller, discusses bourbon
Delve into the past of Kentucky’s sweetest nectar with author and bourbon lord, Chet Zoller, at The Filson Historical Society tomorrow evening at 6pm. And – yes – there will be samples.
It is not uncommon for our fair and blue-grassed state to end up as the butt of many a jibe and joke concerning our decidedly rural – and perhaps slightly folksy – approach to life.  Our big, “cosmopolitan” flagship city (and that would be Louisville) is still, at heart...

Carmichael’s hosts acclaimed young-adult novelist, Silas House, at the Clifton C
Carmichael’s Bookstore is pleased to host a reading and signing with author Silas House this coming Monday, February 20th, at The Clifton Center. Starting at 7pm, mix and mingle with the author as he celebrates the release of his latest venture in young-adult fiction, ‘Same Sun Here’.
Young-adult fiction – like a good scientific theory – has elements that all come together to create what should, logically, be an ultimately sound reading experience for those sub-adult humans not quite ready to head straight for David Foster Wallace.  In theory, young-adult...

Emancipation Celebration: Local historian and author, Peg Bogert, discusses slav
In conjunction with Black History Month, local historian and former Filson staffer, Peg Bogert, will explore the history of slavery in Kentucky this Thursday, February 16th at 12pm at The Filson Historical Society.
February is Black History Month, a time to reflect on both the struggles of race and the tremendous achievements in the African American community. While the issues of race, color and equal rights still continue to affect communities worldwide, the history of black and white relations in our own...
