Check It Out: The History of Love

1 hour ago

In an increasingly digital age, many readers, including myself, find it convenient to consume literature on the go. I listen to about a book a week driving to and from work, and peruse many of my favorite publications on my iPhone.  And while I love the ease of good audio book, there are some stories that were constructed to be physically held and visually read; The History of Love by Nicole Krauss is one of those books—though it’s technically two books, because it’s a novel within a novel.

Sioux City Art Center

Art Splash will bloom in Riverside Park this weekend.  Though the festival has over its 22 years become an institution unto itself, few people know that it is a juried show, with artists from around the country sending their applications each year. This ensures not only that the art on hand is of top quality, but that the scene stays fresh, giving Siouxlanders cause to come back each year with renewed excitement. 

WITCC's Institute for Lifelong Learning

The issuing of Western Iowa Tech's Institute for Lifelong Learning catalog is a clarion call to Siouxlander's interested in culture, travel, and friendship. The fall 2015 catalog, which has just landed on tabletops and in mailboxes, continues to sing. There are opportunities to attend operas, learn guitar, read contemporary novels, explore the life of Helen Keller, consider the presidency of Andrew Jackson, demystify quilts, etc.

Simba is a lab plus. He is also energy plus. Someone out there needs this dog. He will change his or her life. Mornings will be joyous. Parks will reveal their possibilities of pleasure. Faces will be kissed. Find Simba at the Siouxland Humane Society.

Thunder, a poodle that looks like a beautiful dark cloud, joins us on Welcome. Sit. Stay. He has a wonderful disposition and is not loud, as his name suggests. In fact, he floated right up to us and quietly settled onto our laps. You can find him at the Siouxland Humane Society
