Language so beautiful Philistines scurry from the first page, is that so much to ask? Look elsewhere for heaving breasts, blasting lasers and a fourth-grade reading level. I’ll give my readers sex and violence and other visceral entertainments but only as they satisfy my own needs for cerebral titillation. You may find breasts and battles within and enjoy my writing strictly for those thrills but know that always lurking beneath is the terrible threat of subtle thought, allusive resonance and more layers than a philosopher’s parfait. To get through the whipped cream at top will require more than an elementary effort. To get to all the juicy bits may tax a college education. You may want to read another book before returning for a deeper taste of my own. If you are my kind of reader, you have done that so often with other writers that the thought of doing it with me already has you excited.
Hello Book and Beer lovers alike!
Join us in Lexington this Saturday, August 3, from 4-8 PM, at West 6th Brewing for a very special 6th for a Cause: Beers for Books! This will be a collaborative effort between the Carnegie Center and the International Book Project (IBP).
In addition to raffles, literary trivia, a photo booth and commemorative pint glasses, Athenian Grill, Hardwood Pizza, and Crank and Boom Ice Cream will all be on hand. If that is not enough, Olivia from Olivia's beer cheese will have samples available as well as a variety of cheeses for sale with a percentage benefiting these great organizations. Likewise, West Sixth will generously donate 6% of their sales for the day to the Carnegie Center and IBP.
Please come support and learn more about the Carnegie Center and IBP and the positive impact they leave on our community.
The Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning empowers people to explore and express their voices through imaginative learning and the literary arts.
The International Book Project promotes literacy, education and global friendships by sending over 200,000 books annually throughout the developing world and in the United States
Read, Drink and Be Merry,
I wanted to write a classic regular folks would actually read. I wanted to write an adventure academics would find resonant with meaning. You tell me how well I did.
