  KLCC continues a year-end look at the local State of the Arts with arts journalist and photographer Bob Keefer, creator of Eugene Art Talk. He gives his views on the strengths of the local classical music offerings and theater; and weighs in on the challenges facing the visual arts community in the face of gallery closures.

This is KLCC. I’m Connie Bennett, Director of Eugene Public Library, with a book review of "The Shark Curtain” by Chris Scofield.

“The Shark Curtain” is the first novel by Chris Scofield, who lives in Eugene with her husband and (according to the book jacket) two goldfish. Though it’s not for every audience, I found “The Shark Curtain” an absolutely bewitching book.
