    Literary destinations -- Take a book on these road trips
    It seems that my summer reading project will be stretching into the fall. I'm working my way through classics that I haven't covered on a BBC book list that I discovered on Facebook. The BBC supposes that most people have only read six of the 100 books...

    A guided tour of Hogwarts at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
    Towering above the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is Hogwarts, the signature structure of the new Universal Orlando attraction at Islands of Adventure. In the Potter books and films, the castle is home to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,...

    10 ways to remember Wizarding World of Harry Potter
    What you can't buy at Islands of Adventure: Clothing that reads "My grandma went to Wizarding World of Harry Potter and all I got was this lousy T-shirt." Universal Orlando has gone more classy, less Stuckey's for its souvenir selection within the new...
  • REVIEW: 'Shining City' by Irish Theatre of Chicago

     REVIEW: 'Shining City' by Irish Theatre of Chicago
    For all its simplicity and folksy familiarity, the word "storyteller" is a much-overused term in the arts. It's claimed by those less than committed to the art of the raconteur, the craft of the fabulist, the spinner of yarns. But of all the writers out...
  • The Biblioracle: Small sites counter Amazon's access

    The Biblioracle: Small sites counter Amazon's access
    Barring some kind of monumental screw-up, Amazon will be the dominant e-book retailer forevermore. Amazon is certainly capable of screwing up. The Fire Phone that was launched to great fanfare before being quickly discounted to 99 cents seems like a...
  • Grammy Awards: BeyoncĂ©, Coldplay and Sam Smith should get nods

    Grammy Awards: Beyoncé, Coldplay and Sam Smith should get nods
    A year that gave us much exuberant pop music about being happy, shaking it off, keeping it fancy and/or letting go of problems — "the past is in the past," sings Idina Menzel in "Let It Go" — had little need for the starker realities either...
  • Take a literary trip in Micanopy

    Take a literary trip in Micanopy
    A bookstore is always a welcome stop on a weekend road trip. Yeah, Amazon is efficient, but online browsing is woefully lacking in aesthetic pleasures compared with the experience at O. Brisky Books, a fixture in the cozy business district of Micanopy....
  • A peek behind wall at Harry Potter's Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando

    A peek behind wall at Harry Potter's Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando
    We still can't see a whole lot of what's going up at Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley at Universal Studios. That construction wall is maddening to anxious Potterheads, who must wait until summer for unveiling and exploration. Park...
  • Universal presents plenty of boy wizard for Harry Potter Celebration

    Universal presents plenty of boy wizard for Harry Potter Celebration
    All students at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry have worn the Sorting Hat. It's a big deal. The tattered, brown topper magically divides the student body into members of different "houses" — Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or...
  • Theater review: 'A Christmas Story: The Musical' from Orlando Repertory Theatre

     Theater review: 'A Christmas Story: The Musical' from Orlando Repertory Theatre
    Orlando Repertory Theatre specializes in theater for children but "A Christmas Story: The Musical" is equally likely — perhaps more likely — to please young theatergoers' parents. Adults of a certain age will be filled with nostalgia for the...
  • Embarking on a Wizarding World of Harry Potter tour at Universal Orlando

    Embarking on a Wizarding World of Harry Potter tour at Universal Orlando
    For months, I have skulked around the edges of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, peeking over fences, peering through cracks in the construction walls, standing on ledges to get better camera angles, slithering up the exit of Dueling Dragons and...
