Leah, director of programs and community engagement:
- Does anyone want to take the Mindful Reading Challenge with me? The team at Books@Work committed to read a story, poem or essay every day for three weeks; the observations on how each genre contributed to their awareness of the world are perfectly stated.
- I definitely want to linger over a cuppa joe at the new Amack’s Well coffeeshop in Batesville. I learned about the rehab project and history of the shop’s unusual name over on the Indiana Landmarks blog, always worth reading.
- Sometimes I worry about the future of humanity, but then I see something like this marble-powered one-man band and I think the human spirit is alive and well.
Jacqueline Cromleigh, communications manager and program associate:
- “Writing poetry is a way I explore experience and discover meaning.” Read more in the NUVO interview with our state poet laureate, Shari Wagner.
