The Louisville Story Program March 23 2013, 0 Comments

Hello Friends,

The event I'm inviting you to is in support of our son-in-law Darcy Thompson's student writing initiative at Shawnee High School. This is an extremely worthy and well-thought out program that will result in students from underprivileged backgrounds being helped by writers to actually write books about their lives and community. Anyone with an interest in writing, helping young people, or improving Louisville should have a stake in this.

Darcy, a researcher for TeachAmerica, is doing this good work pro bono because he wants to help others by providing an opportunity that currently doesn't exist. He is energetic, intelligent, and dedicated to anything he undertakes. This will be a winner and in a year's time everyone in this town will be astonished at its achievement. I seldom, if ever, ask anyone to do anything, but I'm making an exception in this case. Please join us and help this effort succeed.

The information below will explain more about how to support this project while enjoying a bowl of  great soup.



The Louisville Story Program has been invited to be one of three presenters at the posSOUPbility Spring Fling, an event in which attendees pay $10 each (cash only) for a soup dinner (prepared by Farm to Fork and the Blind Pig), during which you listen to pitches for three new projects/ventures benefiting our community. Attendees vote on the best project, and the winner gets 90% of the proceeds. (So, as far as I understand it, it’s basically a popularity contest—meaning, the more friends who show up for us, the more likely we are to win. I think we may have stiff competition.) It’s on Sunday, April 7, from 5-7pm at Americana Community Center. If you could make it out and/or spread the word and/or bring friends, I would be so grateful.


The organizers of the event ask that you RSVP to with number of guests and dietary restrictions. They also have a Facebook event here, and a not-very-informative website at
