Local artist to have book signing, talk June 30
The Boone County Library in Harrison will feature artworks by Eureka Springs author and artist Zeek Taylor during the month of June, with more than 30 pieces of his art on display on the second-floor mezzanine during regular library hours. The library will host a book signing and talk by Taylor from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. June 30, where he will discuss and read from his two books “Out of the Delta” and “Chimps Having Fun.”
Taylor is a recipient of the Arkansas Arts Council’s Governor’s Art Award for Lifetime Achievement. He has appeared twice on the National Public Radio show Tales from the South and his short stories were heard by more than 130 million listeners. A segment from a StoryCorps interview with Taylor was heard on NPR’s Morning Edition show, and the complete interview is on file in the Library of Congress.
The Boone County Library is located at 221 W. Stephenson Ave. in Harrison. The artwork may be viewed Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The exhibition and talk are free to the public.
