Seventeen Jackson County authors have been invited to display their books at Southern Indiana Center for the Arts (SICA) from April 5th thru May 13th. Executive Director, Darnell Dukes says that a greet and meet reception will be held on Thursday, April 7th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. He says that participating authors will be on hand to talk about their work and sign purchased books.

“We’re excited to open our galleries to these talented writers, photographers and quilter. The reception will be an excellent time to learn about the authors and the idea(s) behind their works of art, however, if someone cannot make it to the reception, we will have copies available thru mid-May,” said Dukes.

SICA officials say that some of the participating authors are: Don Hill (Ramblings and Recollections), Kevin West (Standing Twenty: Southern Indiana’s Remaining True-Circular Round Barns and Cuba Behind Open Doors), Art Robertson (The Dragonpillar), Cindy Claycamp (Quilts Reflecting the Poetry of James Whitcomb Riley), John Pesta (Safely Buried) and Don Clodfelter (Still a Soldier).
