Arts & Entertainment

Greenville, S.C., author, Sonja Condit will present her debut novel on Friday, April 25, at 6:30 p.m. at City Lights Bookstore. “Starter House” is the story of a woman who falls in love with a dusty-rose colonial cottage. It’s the home she has been dreaming of for her and her family. Despite the history of the house, she and her husband eagerly move in. Soon though, she realizes there is something malevolent present. Something only she can sense. Kirkus Review says, “Good, scary fun, packed with emotional nuance."

To reserve a copy of Starter House, call City Lights Bookstore at (828)586-9499.

Talks to MCN about music, movies, and balancing it all

In today's society, it is not unusual for someone to have two jobs. In fact, most people have more than one job. But very few people have two careers. Two careers that send them all over the world. Two careers that simultaneously allow every household in the country to know your name. Two careers that children grow up dreaming about.

Kevin Costner has not only built two careers that skyrocketed him to world fame, but he has done so the old fashioned way: with hard work, and a lot of balancing.
