Daily Notes: Wednesday, March 10

How about we start with a glowing review on such a bright, pretty day as this? The Tuscon Citizen recently reviewed Marion Flexner’s Out of Kentucky Kitchensnow available in paperback! Larry Cox tried out a few home-cooked recipes and had some lovely things to say about Marion Flexner and her well-loved cookbook:

“She knew what tasted good and she learned by watching some of the most accomplished cooks in her region. The result is a cookbook that is certain to become a favorite with yet another generation.”

Out of Kentucky Kitchens is currently available at your favorite bookstore.

ProgressLex posted a commentary today on the power and importance of the arts to emerging communities, and really to any community in general. Really, where would our world be without music, dance, theater, visual arts, or literature? Lexington has become a town where the arts can really flourish. I encourage you to check out a concert at Singletary, attend the next Gallery Hop, or (of course) read a good book!

Lastly, in the spirit of good books, The Morning News is hosting the Tournament of Books– a different kind of March Madness! You can fill out a bracket and watch see if your favorite books from this past year make it to the Championship bout. Today’s contest featured Lowboy by John Ray (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) vs. The Help by Kathryn Stockett (Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam), judged by Andrew Womack. Who do you think will win the “Book Dance?”

P.S. Go Cats! The SEC tournament starts tomorrow, but the Cats won’t play against the winner of the South Carolina/Alabama game until Friday.
