Construction Paper: Get hands-on with the Art of the Book tomorrow at Locust Gro
Ready to bond over book-making? Sign up and try out a number of book and paper making sessions tomorrow, Saturday, June 23rd, at Historic Locust Grove.
Books are sensuous creatures.  While stereotypically associated with the “nerd persona” – a generally asexual and reserved aura – these innocently-cloaked and unobtrusive paper animals have a rich flesh experience that I, personally, find intoxicating (probably because...

Local author and philosopher, James Grote, presents a book about the medieval mi
Join professor, writer and spiritual thinker James Grote as he shares his new release, ‘Medieval Literacy: A Compendium of Medieval Knowledge with the Guidance of C.S. Lewis’ tonight, Thursday, June 21st, at A Reader’s Corner Bookstore at 6pm.

With the release of Marilyn Buck’s posthumously-released poetry collection, ‘Inside/Out’, Carmichael’s Bookstore and a group of local poets will gather this Thursday, June 21st at 7pm to honor the life and writing of the activist and poet.

Carmichael’s hosts Junie B. Jones ‘Stupid Smelly Bus Tour’ at local libraries th
The precocious 6-year-old of the famous children’s series hits the road in this national tour. Presented by Carmichael’s, Junie B.’s bus will stop at library branches in both Louisville and Jeffersonville this upcoming Monday, June 18th. “Wowie-wow-wow!”
As I’m sure you can imagine, there are quite a number of books in the Day household (films, too).  Shelf space is a precious commodity, and the ever-shifting feng shui of our (admittedly over-stuffed) four and a half bookshelves (five if you count the two-shelver in Wee Day’s room...
