Re: “From One Daughter of the White River to Another

I'm trying to find information on the "Pea Farm" in Jacksonville, AR. My great grandmother was an inmate there in the mid to late 20's. I can't find information on the Farm for Women. Was there a coverup because of what happened there? Would Little Rock have the files from the faclity?

Re: “Jonathan Safran Foer at the Jewish Literary and Cultural Arts Festival

Be that as it may. I absolutely loved the movie 'Everything is Illuminated'.

Re: “Jonathan Safran Foer at the Jewish Literary and Cultural Arts Festival

Everything Is Illuminated was also the reading equivalent of eating broken glass. It was an amazing movie, but that was because of the casting of Eugene Hutz of Golgol Bordello and nothing to do with the actual writing, which was atrocious. I loved the movie and couldn't wait to read the book, which was almost entirely unrelated.

Foer's charm was that he wrote about things only old people care about when he was a young writer. Precociousness doesn't age well, however.

Re: “Jonathan Safran Foer at the Jewish Literary and Cultural Arts Festival

Here I Am by Foer is bizarre, troubling and unreadable. It took him 10 years to write this?

Re: “Weekly Reading: Wandering through The Savage Detectives

Oh man I love Roberto bolano too. I can't put my finger on why (hats off to you who can), I just love reading it. I've actually got a note in my phone to name all my future dogs after characters in his novels.

Re: “Author of KLANDESTINE to speak at the National Civil Rights Museum

This is the event Black Lives Matter should protest. It's absolutely absurd the Civil Rights Museum would allow anyone to fertilize and water the lie, James Earl Ray assassinated Dr. King.

The Civil Rights Museum is not under new management.

Re: “Greg Sestero, author/actor, to appear at the Mid-South Book Festival

Indie Memphis sometimes screens THE ROOM. Maybe they can arrange a screening this summer so you can catch up. While you don't need to have seen the movie to enjoy the book, you will enjoy the book so much more after experiencing THE ROOM.

Re: “Remembering Franny and Zooey and Jim.

I still have a couple of cassette tapes left by my old friend at 282 Garland. I put them in the tape deck and pray that the tape monster doesn't mangle them into an unruly mess. He'd be embarrassed to know we are still talking about him, the rockstar in him would be a little upset if we didn't.

Re: “Books Read: Booker Prize Edition

You're making me want to read "this horrible piece of filth" to find out for myself. I'm a huge fan of noir. The darker, the better. Oft times I find dark subjects an interesting study in the struggle for power-most often the stuggle is with oneself, as it sounds in this book.

Re: “Destiny's Child

Eustace Conway III was a counselor at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys when I attended in 1948 and 1949. It is good to learn more about him and Eustace Conway IV, I had often wondered if they were related. Eustace was a great counselor.
