    Life is hard. The reasons for this are many and varied. Maybe we feel marginalized. Maybe we feel we are made to feel less than what we are. Maybe we are lonely. Maybe we are getting older. Maybe it’s just hard.

    The authors we are discussing today understand this, and they have chosen to explore some specific issues in different ways. This week they will both appear at Carmichael’s in support of new books.

    First, tonight, February 11, features a visit by Kristen Simmons, writer of the Article 5 trilogy. Simmons writes young adult fiction – “the kind that’s dark and scary but generally involves some kissing,” according to the Carmichael’s website. Simmons is appearing to share her new novel: The Glass Arrow. In today’s world, we strive (hopefully) for equality of the sexes; this idea is the source of much discussion and debate. In the world of The Glass Arrow, equality of the sexes went away ten generations ago; these days, women are considered property. They are bred; their population is kept strictly under control. The only place of freedom is the wilderness, where Aya has lived her whole life – until she is caught by the Trackers. Simmons will be at Carmichael’s at 6:00 tonight.

    Return on Friday, February 13, to meet Louisville author Sharon Marx and learn about her book Looking for Love Through Thicker Lenses: A Guide to Dating Later in Life. Dating is not just a younger person’s game, asserts Marx. Her book is meant for those a little later on in life who may be discouraged by the idea of dating – when love very likely awaits them if they know how to go about obtaining it. Marx will be at Carmichael’s on Friday at 7:00.

    Carmichael’s is located at 2720 Frankfort Avenue. Complete details for all events can be found at the Carmichael’s website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
