The Arizona Matsuri Festival, a two day festival celebrating Japanese Culture, happens this weekend, Feb. 21 and 22 at the Heritage and Science Park in downtown Phoenix. The annual festivities included a quiet lyrical prelude this year – Haiku. The centuries old art form is now highlighted in the Arizona Matsuri’s Haiku Expo.
Call Me Debbie—True Confessions of a Down-to-earth Diva, by Deborah Voight, Harper, 2015 "...you’ll come away from this book not only loving Voights artistry and talent, but also loving her as a person, and admiring her for going through this ring of fire and coming out the other side. After reading this memoir, Debbie’s more than a talented Diva—she’s family." --Randy Kinkel, KBAQ (Meet Debbie at Changing Hands bookstore at 3 pm Feb 15th!)
