The top daily newspaper in the United States with an average print and digital circulation of 2.11 million readers, the May 7–8, 2011 Wall Street Journal devoted its back page to an article I wrote on Louisville as a travel destination, “Louisville, Ky.: Day at the Races” (online version, .pdf of print version).
Running on the day of the Kentucky Derby, the feature in the Journal’s Off Duty section included
- a 500-word essay sharing insider insight on Louisville
- the top local picks from notable Louisvillians I interviewed: musician Jim James (lead singer of My Morning Jacket), novelist Sue Grafton, chef Edward Lee, and hotelier Laura Lee Brown (owner and curator of 21c Museum Hotel)
- a sidebar on five of my favorite local venues
I also assisted the editor and photographer with selecting subjects for the nine pieces of art that accompanied the article.
