    Mayday, Mayday, barbecue is on the menu

    By: Christy V. Temple Okay, we’re in the month of May again and right around the corner to lots of goings-on in Owensboro/Daviess County.

    Spring Vacations: Tips & Tricks for the best vacation experience

    By: Christy V. Temple Well, it’s that time of the year again when lots of our locals are heading out to warmer climates to escape the doldrums from winter on their Spring Breaks. Usually, this means that about half the population of Owensboro leaves and there aren’t a whole lot of people left in town. However, this was years ago and it seems as though there are more people that tend to stay closer to…

    Instagram: A photographer’s dream

    It’s a little known fact that the Daviess County Public Library….

    By: Christy V. Temple My blog for the end of February is going to be a little different this time. Instead of waxing poetic and writing lots of nice long sentences about the library in a paragraph format, I am going to take a cue from the former David Letterman show and prepare a list of some of the things that the Daviess County Public Library has done over the years or is currently doing.…

    Margins February meeting!

    For our February 27th meeting, Margins members discussed If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan. In the book, a young lesbian couple (Sahar and Nasrin) struggle to deal with their secret relationship in Iran, where homosexuality is punishable by death. Nasrin’s upcoming arranged marriage to a wealthy doctor becomes another pivotal conflict in the book. Everyone seemed to agree that the book shed light on the interesting “selective morality,” as Aynde called it, of…

    Margins: LGBT Book Club January Summary

      (To keep people in the loop—in case you couldn’t attend but still wanted to know what we talked about—we’ll be posting a blog for each meeting to note what we discussed.) For our first meeting, we had some brief introductions and talked about the type of books we want to read. Although the first two selections are YA (young adult), the club isn’t necessarily focusing on LGBT teen lit. We’ll read whatever the club…
