Yes, some people still read real books. So, this is your day, book lovers. That funky little used bookstore on 11th East is holding its sixth annual parking lot sale.

African culture is rich and musical—and you can participate this weekend at the inaugural African Festival. Learn how to play African drums. Enjoy authentic African food from various part of the continent, crafts, fashion, dancing, talents, poetry, an African Zumba class and lots more. There's even a playhouse and balloon art for the kids.

Come to one of the free parties every Wednesday through mid-August, meet-and-greets with the program director and fun classes.
