More than 100 years ago, the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville met for the first time on the basketball court. In 1983, the intrastate rivals faced each other in the original “Dream Game.” Fightin’ Words authors, Ryan Clark of Burlington and Joe Cox of Bowling Green, will share the inside stories of these specific games and other notable meetups that helped form this infamous rivalry. Other tales include how Louisville coach Denny Crum out-recruited Joe B. Hall for the athletes in inner-city Louisville, how Rick Pitino had a dominant tenure at UK, then left to become the Cardinals’ coach, how John Calipari brought UK back on top, and much more. Clark and Cox will read from, discuss and sign copies of their book.

Secret Disco Revolution
Review
This one really took me back. It felt authentic, and my only criticism is that the light emitted by the tv didn't illuminate the mirror ball hanging from from my ceiling. I think I saw myself sparkling in the goldmine of rarely seen stock footage.  "Check it Out"

Review
I listened to the book on CD version of this book and enjoyed it immensely. I thought the narrator did a good job of portraying Cath and the other characters in the book. I enjoyed the set-up of the book, going back and forth between Cath's story and the Simon Snow (Harry Potter rip-off) excerpts. I thought it ended a little abruptly, but was still satisfying.   "Check it Out"
