Riverssance, Symphony Opening, Some Oktoberfests...
Travis Morgan is my guest host this week and we have a LOT to talk about. The 15th Kingdom of Riverssance Festival is this weekend. There are at least two Oktoberfests plus BBQ and Blues on the River and the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra presents a man named Zuill.
Inspiration can strike from anywhere. Reading the obits one day, Kenneth Jones came across the story of Emily Wheelock Reed, a librarian who lived and worked in Alabama during the 1950's and 60's. Trouble began for her when she added illustrator Garth Williams' book The Rabbits' Wedding to her stacks, a book that portrays the marriage of a black rabbit and a white rabbit.
