A Chocolate Affair

Enjoy an amazing evening of chocolate all the while supporting the Janice Mason Art Museum. The event is held at Fairholme (the John Street house) on Main Street in Cadiz. There will also be live music and a fun photo booth! There are three different entry times – 4 PM, 5 PM, and 6 PM. A fun time to mingle even if you are single. If you’re taking your Valentine out for dinner, come have dessert first! Tickets are $20 each and may be purchased at the museum. You may also call 270-522-9056 to reserve tickets.


Next meeting – January 23, 6:00 PM.  The book for this quarter is “People of the Book” by Geraldine Brooks. The Book Club meets once a quarter.  It meets in the lobby of the museum and everyone is invited, even if you have not read the book.  The book will always be art related and can be fiction or non fiction. The group determines the next book to read and the next meeting date.  Make plans to join us.

Poetry Reading

John Secor will read from his new poetry collection, “Boomerang Girl,” and Kala Dunn will perform original pieces on the flute.

“Boomerang Girl” is a series of new poems about love and loss, friendship and transitions, looking backwards through time and outwards to new horizons, always trying to say more by saying less.

John Secor, a native of Poughkeepsie, NY, was raised in Toronto, Canada, and studied at Hobart College in Geneva, NY, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and in Strasbourg, France. His teaching career took him to Washington state, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and frequently to Paris in summers. Always interested in words and language, Secor has written poetry in English and French. Now retired from Morehead State, Secor lives in west Kentucky, where he continues his enthusiasm for long walks, soccer and singing.

Kala Dunn is a 2006 graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy (in Michigan) with an emphasis in flute performance. Dunn is a 2010 graduate of Murray State University, and has also participated in numerous summer programs including the Brevard music camp (North Carolina) and the William Bennett summer program at Austin Peay University. Currently pursuing a Masters in English at Murray State, Dunn works at WKMS-FM and still finds time to play piano and flute.
