Mama doesn't get very many press releases. Send Lou press releases!
The INKY High School Journal readings sound right up my alley, and like a lovely follow-up to seeing My So-Called So-Called Life. I'm gonna make an effort to be there. We really like the whole Jeffrey Lee Puckett / Bridgid Kaelin / Laura Shine aspect. All Louisvillagers that Mama has little local crushes on. And isn't Tori Murden McClure the Louisvillager who rowed across the Atlantic Ocean?!
And it's in Gil Holland's Green Building. What more could you want in a Saturday night?
I wish I could make more of an effort with this posting, though, but like the White Rabbit, I'm late for a very important date! (No, not that kind of date... sheesh... )
So here's the press release in its entirety.
Tickets are still available for InKY's 5th birthday party fundraiser at the Green Building. Support the literary arts in Louisville and join us for a special night of melodrama and manifestos...High School Journal!
Read the sneak preview in the Courier-Journal!
Writers and readers will share the chronicles of their adolescent angst through emotional diary entries, passionate poems and stories, righteously indignant record reviews and school paper editorials, and much more.
Featuring performances by adventurer and university administrator Tori Murden McClure, WFPK's Laura Shine, novelist Brian Leung, musician Brigid Kaelin, writer Crystal Wilkinson, The Courier-Journal lifestyles editor David Daley, music journalists Peter Berkowitz and Jeffrey Lee Puckett, with music courtesy of the Bourbon Brothers (Charles Spivey and WFPK's Michael Young of Roots n' Boots).
