It’s an afternoon of sophisticated fun with literature, poetry, opera and film on our plate. First, Eddie Garcia chats it up with Daniel Handler. He’s perhaps better- known as author Lemony Snicket, the man behind "A Series of Unfortunate Events", and we feel very fortunate to have him here with us today.

On the heels of Richard Wagner’s 200th birthday, Piedmont Opera’s Jamie Allbritten and soprano Carter Scott are here to deliver a happy, but a bit soggy ending.

His publisher at Unicorn Press and a community of local artists have come together to create New River Breakdown
