  • Jan of the Jungle

      You would be hard-pressed to find a library in town that doesn't carry Jan Brett's books, or a kid who hasn't encountered at least one along the way. The Mitten, Brett's most ubiquitous title, is a staple in schools and reading programs a
  • Book Review

      It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a Jane Austen fan in possession of some moments of leisure must be in want of a good book. And the book industry has obliged us. We have been offered Bridget Jones's Diary and Pride, Prejudice
  • Garrison Keiller

      Get Lit! will provide Spokane with a host of opportunities to hobnob with literary giants. But few of those figures will be as familiar in aspect and voice as Garrison Keillor. With his fuzzy caterpillar eyebrows, ironic smile, and tradem
  • Book Review

      The Time Traveler's Wife was, for me, one those rare and wonderful reading experiences. From the first chapter of Audrey Niffenegger's debut novel, I was hooked. Five hundred pages later, I was grieving the end, not wanting to leave these
  • Speed Dancing

      March is the month when Americans turn their eyes to all things Irish. We guzzle our green beer, eat our yearly quota of corned beef and cabbage, and dutifully line the streets for parades celebrating a holiday that is little-known on the
  • Once Upon A Time

  • Wallowing In Art

      Spokane's Artfest has come and gone, and Coeur d'Alene's Art on the Green is weeks away, but head south to Walla Walla's Artwalla celebration next week and you can still get your arts fix in a big way. Artwalla offers art lovers ten days
  • A Bacchanalia of Bach

      In 1979, classical music lovers in the Inland Northwest gathered for the first Northwest Bach festival. The program featured some of Spokane's best known musicians: Ann Fennessy, Kelly Farris, Verne Windham, Thomas Hampson and a host of o
  • Book Review - Blue Shoe

      Let me start by saying that I am a fan of Anne Lamott. Her essays and memoirs have made me giggle and weep, and it would not be an overstatement to say that at certain moments in my life her writing has given me the wisdom and the humor I
  • Made in America

      Since 1988, Whitworth College's annual Redmond Reading program has been bringing talented writers to Spokane. Familiar names such as William Stafford, Tess Gallagher, Sherman Alexie and Joy Harjo have been among the authors brought to cam
  • The Real Deal

      Americans are notorious for wanting to be self-sufficient. They want to keep up with the Joneses, remodel the kitchen and make homemade cookies for the grade school class Halloween party while they stay in shape, in fashion and in the loo
  • Art Out of Context

      They say you can't take it with you, but certainly what we accumulate and collect will say quite a bit about us to future archeologists. This year, Eastern Washington University's Visiting Artist Lecture Series has been examining the them
  • Crossover Artist

      HARRY CONNICK JR. is a man of many talents. As a singer, musician, composer, actor and even inventor, Connick has consistently pushed the boundaries and surprised audiences with his versatility and seemingly limitless gifts. Connick is a
  • Dark and Moody

      The fact that Rick Moody titled his most recent book of short stories Demonology should tell you something about how concerned he is about fitting into the mainstream. Moody's fiction, including the novels Purple America and The Ice Storm
  • All-Ages Author

      Spokane is fortunate to frequently play host to some great authors. Between readings at Auntie's Bookstore and events at local colleges, we see a lot more architects of the written word than many cities our size. Each year Whitworth Coll
  • Book Review-Portrait in Sepia

      Isabel Allende has a knack for luring the reader into unfamiliar worlds and then making the magical seem familiar. Her books are peopled by diverse and complex characters whose quests for meaning seem to connect effortlessly to those same
  • Seeking Perfection

      The musical team of Lerner and Loewe is perhaps not quite as well-known as their contemporaries Rogers and Hammerstein, but their shows are as familiar as any the latter can claim. Lyricist Alan Jay Lerner and composer Frederick Loewe are
  • Polished glass

      The Northwest is a sort of mecca for glass artists of the world, and one of the West Side's finest glassblowers is bringing his work to Spokane this month. Mariusz Rynkiewicz, a native of Poland, is showing his latest work at the Douglas
  • Moment of truth

      When the ghost of Christmas Past visits my dreams, it takes the form of a frog Santa left me when I was seven. Big and ugly, this stuffed animal frog was designed to hold the pajamas of innocent children in its gaping red maw. The frog wa
  • Rave on

      America needs some fun right now. As we hover between tragedy and war, we need to remember that there was a simpler time: a time before Vietnam and drug wars and terrorist bombings. That time was the 1950s, and while it had tragedies of i
  • Femmes fatale

      Recent history is riddled with examples of criminals, celebrities, and politicians being tried in the court of public opinion. One need only look to yesterday's headlines to find examples of the media making or breaking someone's future b

  • In step, in tune and in color

      Spokane's families have a reason to celebrate this week as the Spokane Children's Museum celebrates its third anniversary, with extended hours today, including birthday cake and face painting. The museum, which has been on Post Street do
