Bloomington’s Canopy of Lights is a local favorite that kicks the holiday season into high gear starting this weekend, but traditions like that don’t just happen overnight. Artworks’ Yael Ksander talks to some folks from the Monroe County History Center about the origins of the downtown display of lights.

And Artworks’ Adam Schwartz gets the scoop on good writers behaving badly with the author of “Writers Gone Wild.”
