It’s the last gasp of summer, so we’re recalling all the season’s pleasures and pastimes. We sit in on a practice of the Bleeding Heartland Roller Girls, who are gearing up for international competition; we hang out and draw all day at the Monroe County Public Library’s Sixth Annual 12-Hour Comic Book Day; and, as the Rolling Stones wind up their 50th anniversary tour, we’ll share a story from the Rolling Stones’ self-proclaimed “biggest fan”, produced by American Student Radio. We’ll wash all that down with a long cool foretaste of the best local cocktail, as will be determined August 29th at The Mix Off at the Buskirk Chumley Theatre
And as the Fourth Street Festival of Arts and Crafts signals the official end of summer in Bloomington, we visit with several writers presenting a sidebar event during Labor Day weekend—The Spoken Word Stage.
