    People are fascinating. Ever fixate on a person? It can be an interesting game to play. I find myself rarely bored when out in public, even when just sitting by myself: there is so much to see, so much to observe. (This is like prime rib for the aspiring writer, by the way.) Get to know an inkling of a person, and it’s not hard to delve deeper into Who They Are. Everyone has stories, incredibly interesting stories, if you only know how to look.

    Tonight, Friday, January 9, Louisville Literary Arts presents this month’s installment of the InKY Reading Series at the Bard’s Town, featuring two authors whose books have to do with obsession towards the individual:

    + Hannah Pittard, whose compelling novel The Fates Will Find Their Way tells the story of a group of boys who grow to be men, all the while obsessing over the possibilities of what happened to a girl who disappeared when they were teenagers. Her recent release Reunion follows a woman who travels to her home town for the funeral of her estranged father who committed suicide. Her next novel, Listen To Me, is slated for a 2016 release.

    + Kelly Creagh, author of the Nevermore trilogy, telling the story of cheerleader Isobel and her relationship with the mysterious Varen, whose mind’s darkness is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and the goth subculture.

    Pittard and Creagh will be accompanied by two guest poets, Joy Priest and Danni Quintos, both members of the Affrilachian Poets.

    The Bard’s Town is located at 1801 Bardstown Road. Open mic readings begin at 7:00 (arrive around 6:30 to sign up) and the featured authors read at 7:30. Complete information can be found at the Louisville Literary Arts website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
