Open books lead to open minds. It's the premise of the book fest this weekend at Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium.
Maybe the most open minded act will be the masses "braving" the neighborhood and going to the Municipal. RRBJ only says that because we've heard tales of (1)folks who won't even eat at certain restaurants because they are in the neighborhood of Highland(2) and folks who wish the Municipal could be moved from its current locale and plopped down the banks of the Red River. We are not one of those close-minded yahoos. We love us some Highland and downtown (was gonna say lub but this is a post about books...).
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
