Congratulations to neighbor Miriam Herin. Her second novel, A Stone for Bread, heads the March “Indie Books of the Month” list in Kirkus Reviews. The bimonthly magazine reviews several thousand books a year and is widely read among booksellers and librarians. “Only an extreme select few books get selected by their editors for a featured review, and even fewer (literary greats) actually get a star,” author Michel Sauret wrote. Right — featured review and star. See example above. A Stone for Bread is available from Amazon and such fine local bookstores as Scuppernong Books on South Elm Street, an easy walk from College Hill.

Note to Realtors and Prospective Home Buyers
Isn’t There Anything to Do Around Here?
No, not any more. But eventually things will return to normal, and when they do, check the Local Events page for links to major events, major venues, university event calendars and Greensboro’s busy local arts scene (much of which happens downtown).
