And the Prøve Collective is reopening after several months of extensive renovation ... you can enjoy the revitalized space and Jay Whitcomb's Demons and Angels: Moments of Clarity beginning Friday evening.


Here's the book that's intriguing our host Annie Dugan these days; it's called The Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane and illustrated by Jackie Morris.

In 2007, the Oxford Junior Dictionary dropped around 40 words, including acorn, adder, bluebell, dandelion, fern, heron, kingfisher, newt, otter, and willow, ostensibly to make room for words like attachment, blog, broadband, bullet-point, cut-and-paste, and voice-mail.

MacFarlane and Morris responded with a"spell book" to bring back these lost words, and it's published by Anansi International.
