LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.16 101 READING LIST MY METHOD TRENDING Illustration by Rachael Sinclair Photo by Adam Mescan Going on a long trip this summer? We asked the folks at Carmichael's Kids (1313 Bardstown Road) to recommend some summer reading for the kiddo in your life. Oh, and just an FYI: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is out July 31. "And we will be open at midnight for fans who would like to read it right away," manager Kelly Estep says. "It is in script form because it is a play, but people will still be excited to read the story of Harry Potter as an adult working for the Ministry of Magic!" The Gathering Storm (The Hidden World of Changers), by H. K. Varian "For fans of Percy Jackson comes this new series inspired by Japanese, Mexican, South African and Irish mythology. A diverse cast of characters start developing shape-shifting powers and join forces to battle an evil warlock!" — Rachel Brewer Crenshaw, by Katherine Applegate "Crenshaw is a larger-than-life cat who, among other things, has fngers, can surf and enjoys taking bubble baths! This story of a young boy learning to speak and own his truth, with the help of this recently returned imaginary friend, is insightful and poignant." — Kimberly Sewell Circus Mirandus, by Cassie Beasley "A perfect summer read and our July 10 kids' book club pick. A young boy discovers that his grandfather's stories of a magical circus are true." — Sarah Longazel Summerlost, by Ally Condie "The summer after Cedar loses her father and brother in a car accident, her mother moves their family, now three of them, to Iron Creek, Utah, home to the Summerlost Shakespeare Festival. Cedar fnds an unexpected friend in Leo, a theater nerd. A lovely middle- grade story of friendship." — Estep Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana, supplies free sunscreen, inner tubes and soda. Re the latter: Beware of suspiciously warm water. FORECASTLE'S LOUISVILLE? Local acts (Rapper 1200, folk artist Joan Shelley and Louisville Orchestra conductor Teddy Abrams "and friends.") Non-Louisville acts (Including the Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes and Ryan Adams.) Forecastle is July 15-17 at Waterfront Park LOCAL ACTS NON- LOUISVILLE ACTS 3 55 Jason Barresi's triptych of skateboard decks bearing a photo- realistic drawing of Grecian statues hangs in a back room at Prophecy Ink, the shotgun house-turned- gallery-slash-tattoo parlor on Baxter Avenue where he works inking skin. He scratched in the fne details with a tattoo needle. For this year's show (with as many as 100 skateboard decks-as-canvases on display, July 2 through September), Barresi's design will feature a favorite nostalgic movie: Back to the Future. "Even though it came out in 1985 and I was born in 1986, I feel like I grew up watching it," he says. "As a kid, I always wanted a hoverboard." — Jenny Kiefer
