Letter from the Publisher

“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds us closer together and the music that brings harmony.” –Eva Burrows


F
ebruary is the time to celebrate love, and in this issue, we’ve decided to put a special emphasis on the love of family. I hope you’ll enjoy reading the stories of local families who have come together in remarkable ways.

You’ll also find two features that celebrate the love of literature. First, learn about the newly-opened Northeast Library and all that it has to offer. Then, take in our fashion editorial that was beautifully captured at the Louisville Free Public Library’s Downtown Branch. Thank you to everyone at the library who made our team feel so welcome.

This month we’re also giving you a sneak peek at three magnificent events that I look forward to every year: KMAC Couture Fashion Week, Wine Women & Shoes and the Speed Art Museum Ball.

Fashion Week is a great way for fashionistas and fans to get excited about KMAC Couture: Art Walks the Runway, and it’s a chance to score several deals at local businesses. Stay tuned for more on this amazing event in our March issue.

The name Wine Women & Shoes says it all: this evening has great drinks, some of the city’s most fashionable and philanthropic women and fabulous shoes galore. It’s an ultimate ladies night that supports Family Scholar House, which does so much good for single parents who are pursuing an education and a better life for their children.

And then there’s the Speed Art Museum Ball, one of the most iconic events you can be a part of. The dinner, the dancing, the art – I love it all. The museum is an irreplaceable fixture in our community, and thanks to proceeds from the Speed Art Museum Ball, the staff can share art with more and more people around the state.

Thank you for picking up The Voice. May your February be full of love.
