Daily Notes: Thursday, April 8

If you’ve been following our Tweets, you may have noticed that UPK author Jim Tomlinson will be at the Carnegie Center next Tuesday to read from and sign Nothing Like an Ocean: Stories.”  He will be reading as part of the Carnegie Center’s Kentucky Great Writers Series.

In other exciting events, Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington will be hosting a Book Launch and Cocktail Hour, featuring hors d’oeuvres from The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook and cocktails from The Kentucky Bourbon Cocktail Book. Call (859) 273-2911 for pricing and ticket information (must be at least 21).

You can also start planning now to attend Confederate Memorial Day on Saturday, June 5 in PeeWee Valley, Kentucky. The event not only commemorates the sometimes forgotten, confederate veterans of our state, but also celebrates Rusty Williams new book My Old Confederate Home. Rusty will be on hand to sign copies at several times throughout the event. More details to come later!

We hope you’re enjoying this rainy Thursday in Lexington! If you’ve got good rain gear, why not stop by the Annual Belle Brezing Bed Race on Short Street this evening at 6 as a part of The Best of the Bluegrass events.
