It’s National Poetry Month! You are invited to listen in to a reading of poems from Mud Cloth Roots authored by mother-daughter poets Dr. V.S. Chochezi and Staajabu, which includes a back story of mud cloth.
Book events provide a treasure trove of literary treats. This week, you are introduced to a wide range of genres through brief conversations with over a dozen authors at the California Capital Book Festival.
Also, we visit Great Basin National Park in Nevada.
Footwear either provide necessary protection or present fashion statements. Vintage shoes provide a visual historical perspective and perhaps a family connection with an ancestor. This week, the Center for Sacramento History is presenting an exhibit of their shoe collection. I sat down with Veronica L. Kandl, Curator of History, and Rebecca Crowther, Photographs Archivist, about shoe textiles used over the last 100 years, stories associated with footwear and methods of storage. And, we visit Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
What’s missing from the world of dating? For Valentine’s Day I sat down with Jenn Brian of Queen of Dating. And, we visit Lake Clark National Park.
