Happy World Book Day, Part Deux

This holiday has been around since 1923. But for some reason, it’s never really caught on here in the states. Not sure why. These days it’s organized by UNESCO and seems like a good idea. This older Wolrd Book Day originates in Spain and is different than England’s World Book Day (which they celebrate on March 5th) which was founded in 1998. So, anyway…

Happy World book Day (for the second time in 2009)!

Something us locals already knew

The Magic City Art Connection has been named one of the “top 20 events to attend in April 2008”, by the Southeast Tourism Society. The weekend art event, which turns 25 this year, attracts artists from all over the country and is always fun. But it’s always nice when someone over in Atlanta looks our way.
