I’m going to get existential today, and there is nothing you can do about it – ponder that line for a moment – so, for those who would like to skip the Erin Day in the Erin Day Article, the following is for you:  Al Smith, a local broadcast journalist of Kentucky fame for...

Christmas starts at Carmichael’s: Buy local for your favorite bookworms with Car
The red ribbon was savagely cut last evening (seriously, kids, I’m totally judging you if you hit stores yesterday at all for anything other than extra cranberry sauce), and the Holiday shopping season is open. Give locally, give literary with the Carmichael’s Bookstore 2012 Holiday Catalogue.
What were you up to at 6am this morning, love-a-doves?  I’ll venture some deductive reasoning (whoa, nelly!) and fan out some sound options for us, here:Perhaps you were safe and snuggled in your bed-and-nest-place with a tummy still making little gurgle noises.  This is a good...

There are those among us who simply Do It All. Local literary jack-of-all-trades George Ella Lyon will hit up Carmichael’s Bookstore this Sunday, November 18th at 4pm for a book signing and reading.

Ah.  Sweet surrender.  That’s a phrase. That’s the name of a bakery.  Probably several bakeries in the world, actually.  But is surrender so sweet?  Oh…subtext.  Ok.I’ve never literally waved a white flag.  That is not a thing that...

Steve Wiser presents 'Distinctive Houses of Louisville' at Carmichael's
The pyramids. The Great Wall. The Taj Mahal. Louisville homes. It's all in the same breath, folks. Join Steve Wiser tomorrow, Saturday, November 10th, at Carmichael's Bookstore as he presents his book 'Distinctive Houses of Louisville' at 4pm.
I live in a Distinctive House.  I know because I have legitmate wainscotting.  I know because my ceilings could comfortably house a bull elephant.  I know because there is a plaque bolted into the stone that says so (more or less).  And everybody else seems to know it, too - and...
