LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.18 91 Lots of locals on the Forecastle lineup this year, including Wax Fang (see page 56), Houndmouth, White Reaper and what's becoming an annual collaboration between Louisville Orchestra director Teddy Abrams and other artists (Ben Sollee, Carly Johnson, surely a few surprises). Some others that have us excited: Louisville Leopard Percussionists Kids playing xylophones and steel drums on a hot July afternoon? That's practically like being on the beach in the Caribbean. Maiden Radio Hour As if the trio of nationally acclaimed singer-songwriters Joan Shelley, Cheyenne Mize and Julia Purcell isn't a big enough sell, the show will include special guests and collaborations. Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper The Southern Indiana native and fiddle virtuoso will blow your fanny pack off. West Louisville Showcase With rapper and curator Jecorey "1200" Arthur, rising singer Chanson Calhoun, "slam master" Lance Newman, the River City Drum Corps. and others. Iroquois Amphitheater, the Belvedere and the Louisville Zoo all host movie nights this summer. Plus, from July 22 to 27 the Louisville Film Society's Flyover Film Festival will screen eight movies, including five that were shot in Kentucky. We asked the folks at the zoo (screening Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle July 6 and Coco Aug. 3) for a movie list. Zoo PR manager Kyle Shepherd spoke for the group. THE LINEUP WATCHLIST The Lorax "With its strong environmental messaging about protecting the world around you, the film resonates deeply with the zoo's mission. While we work daily to better the bond between people and planet, the Lorax similarly teaches viewers: 'Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.'" The Wizard of Oz "This classic film would be a great choice even if it didn't feature lions and tigers and bears — oh my!" The Lion King "How could we not love a movie about animals in the African savannah learning their place in the circle of life?" A Bug's Life "The story of an ant with a knack for invention who is able to save his entire colony from their foes. This movie always reminds us that one simple act can often lead to big impacts tomorrow and for a lifetime." And, finally, the obvious picks: The Jungle Book and Zootopia. The champion of this spring's Zaner-Bloser National Handwriting Contest for the eighth grade is taking her time writing thank-you cards after her eighth-grade graduation. Fourteen- year-old Leyna Lehenbauer has been learning cursive at Our Savior Lutheran School, off Shelbyville Road, since about the second grade. She has always been a perfectionist — something that translates well to her interests in biology, archery, basketball, soccer — and if it takes her a bit of extra time to get through an assignment, well, she's OK with that. That pristine handwriting "shows you took time, you care about it," she says. She'll take that work ethic to Ballard High School next year. At this point, Lehenbauer doesn't need to practice much outside school. I ask her if her cursive has grown individual over the years. It has, she says, carefully drawing out a capital L that could be a carbon copy of the one over your elementary school chalkboard. Then she writes her personal L — a letter so similar I feel like I'm playing one of those games where you try to spot the differences between two images. Her expert eye helps me out: the top starts a little higher, the loop in the bottom just a tad smaller than perfect. — Dylon Jones MY METHOD
