Local author Daniel Meyer brings ‘Gargoyles and Grotesques’ to the Jeffersonvill
You may only have a hot minute to skee-daddle over the bridge to get your gargoyle on, but how else are you gonna spend an October evening with a sidewalk full of leaves? Join local author Daniel Meyer for a presentation of his book, ‘Gargoyles and Grotesques of the Ohio River Valley’, at the Jeffersonville Township Public Library tonight, October 25th, at 6pm.
I, my dearies, really like haunted houses. The fake ones – ahem, the “thematic” ones – my friends.  The stages set for spooktacular thrills for the cost of a hot date.  It’s something I ponder all the live-long year until October slinks up and scuttles...

Art is subjective, yes, but some eyes see better than others. Join writer and social critic, Camille Paglia, at the Louisville Free Public Library’s Main branch this Monday, October 22nd, as she discusses themes in Western art with her new book ‘Glittering Images’.
I do not consider myself an artist.  I find that I sound incredibly silly when I’ve introduced myself as such in the past.  People can see the lie spreading across my face as the words tumble out of my mouth and puddle on the floor in confusion between us.  It’s just not...

I have a collection of pipes that sits in my kitchen windowsill.  There are six of them there, balanced on their smooth, wooden noses in a stand; another three perched for display on bookshelves.  I like these pipes very much.  The curve fits so neatly against the fingers, swaddled...
