Would you like to know more about Arkansas musical past and present? Did you know that Arkansas has a Rock-n-Roll Highway? I didn't, although admittedly I haven't been living here for very long.

To quench my thirst for knowledge on this subject, the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies will host a cocktail party to celebrate the release of the book, “Encyclopedia of Music.” This event will be held on Sept. 19 at 5:30 p.m. in the main library’s Darragh Center, 100 Rock St., which is part of the Central Arkansas Library System.

In order to accommodate everyone attending, reservations are encouraged. To RSVP, email kchagnon@cals.org or call (501) 918-3033. Whether you like bluegrass or rock, I hope to see all you music lovers there!
