Rooms: Writers in the Attic is the first installment of a new annual anthology published by The Cabin. The 148-page paperback features 29 writers chosen by Cort Conley, director of literary services at the Idaho Commission on the Arts, some of them published for the first time in Rooms.
The second event of the series begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 21, with the theme Fractured Fairy Tales. Schildknecht plans to pick three stories that retell classic fairy tales, such as the Three Little Pigs and their plan to frame the Big Bad Wolf. He suggests an age range of 4-8 years old.
Few delights compare to uncorking a bottle of wine with which to plop down to read from a good book. Be it merlot and Murakami or chardonnay and Chaucer, the aromatics of the fermented fruit beverage pair perfectly with the odorous volatiles emitted from paper pages.
At Rediscovered Books, tome slingers like Barb Olic-Hamilton know this and have created an ode to slightly tipsy readings with their Book and Wine Tour. Friday, May 18, marks the next sojourn through a collection of selected work alongside tastings of fine wines and Basque Market tapas.
