Heading South: Bestselling author and ‘NY Times’ columnist Gail Collins brings ‘
Join writer Gail Collins in an intriguing discussion about the Lone Star state and conservative political climate change (ha!) this Thursday, June 28th at the Louisville Free Public Library at 7pm.
I do not care much for chewing over politics.  While I was once an admittedly voracious and bombastic defensive liberal, I’ve found that raising my blood pressure with political foils over issues of great personal passion is not good exercise.  Waggling tongues will always waggle,...

Sarabande Books presents poets Matt Bell and Wayne Miller tonight at 21c
Dust off those poetry pants (although summery shorts are now also acceptable) and hold pinkies aloft. This month’s 21c Reading Series will feature poets Matt Bell and Wayne Miller tonight, Monday, June 25th at 7:30pm.

The Jane Austen Society hosts author Sandy Lerner at Historic Locust Grove
Looking for another chapter beyond ‘Pride & Prejudice’? Sandy Lerner, writing under the penname ‘Ava Farmer’, will present just that with her book ‘Second Impressions’. Join The Jane Austen Society for a reading and signing this upcoming Thursday, June 21st, at 6:30pm.
Jane Austen did not write The Great American Novel.  Nope.  This would be highly impossible – first and foremost because Ms. Austen was decidedly not American – but namely because her contributions against the Romanticism movement so indicative of her era could not (and do not...
