THIS WEEK

Hello, Charlottesville! Thank you for reading C-VILLE Weekly. I’m excited to introduce this unique issue of the paper, which sports three different covers for discerning collectors. Artist Steve Keene, prolific as ever, offered us eight options when we asked him to paint our cover this week, so we figured we should make an event out of it. (You can see the alternatives Keene sent on the left.) I’m looking forward to seeing which printings of the paper you readers will pick up! Keene (p. 14) paints at a pace of 50 pieces a day, meaning just about everybody in town owns a part of his expansive oeuvre. I admire that kind of work ethic; I imagine that painting so quickly means Keene doesn’t get too precious about the little things. That’s why a deadline is helpful for me as a writer. If I have infinite time, I’ll tweak and rewrite and delete small passages forever—just spin my wheels, going nowhere. I suppose the only reason you’re reading this now is because

“I firmly believe that white supremacy will be rooted out. … Case in point: we’re here, they’re not.”

­— Former city councilor Wes Bellamy, speaking on the five-year anniversary of August 12, 2017

NEWS IN BRIEF

Don’t eat that!

Blood, sweat, and tears PAGE 13

A walking vigil for A12

The University of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Poison Center has seen a sharp rise in THCrelated poison control calls among children and teens, reports the Virginia Mercury. Dr. Chris Holstege, who was assigned to a stateformed task force, attributes the spike to products containing Delta-8, which has soared in popularity since 2020. Experts blame a lack of regulation of the lab-made cannabinoid, as well as “copycat” edibles that resemble popular snacks, like Skittles and Cheetos. In June, the Virginia General Assembly passed a two-year budget banning edibles resembling protected trademarks or made in the shape of a human, animal, vehicle, or fruit.

Bellamy was accompanied by religious leaders and fellow activists. Each stop hosted a new speaker, including Jalane Schmidt, director of the UVA Democracy Initiative’s Memory Project, Rev. Phil Woodson, Rev. Brenda Brown-Grooms, Rabbi Tom Gutherz, and Deacon Don Gathers. At the First United Methodist Church, Woodson asked members of the crowd to raise their hands if they had marched five years ago or if they had served as medics to the injured. Many hands went up. The vigil stirred the community on a Friday afternoon. Shopkeepers poked their heads out of doors to watch the procession pass by, sometimes cheering or joining in on “White supremacy has to go” chants. A speaker noted that state Sen. Creigh Deeds was in the crowd, and members of the B.U.C.K. Squad, including Executive Director Herb Dickerson, made the journey as well.

A FOIA lawsuit against the City of Charlottes­ville seeking records about police misconduct settlements is moving forward after federal Judge Norman K. Moon denied the city’s motion to dismiss the case on Monday and allowed the plaintiffs’ attorney, Jeff Fogel, time to file an amended complaint. The suit alleges the city is withholding information about the amount paid out in cases of police wrongdoing. Tanesha

Hudson, one of three plaintiffs, alleges her First Amendment rights were violated by a nondisclosure agreement she says she was coerced to sign that prohibits her from discussing a settlement she received. A second plaintiff, Cherry Henley, is a member of the People’s Coalition, which filed a FOIA request seeking records. The city claimed it did not have any responsive records, and that settlements are handled by a third party called VRSA, which acts as an insurance

pool for many of Virginia’s municipalities. The third plaintiff is local journalist David McNair. Blaire O’Brien, the city’s attorney, argued that the plaintiffs lacked standing to file the suit, since the FOIA request cited in the complaint was made by the People’s Coalition. O’Brien also said the plaintiffs had failed to show harm. “What we’re dealing with here is simply an effort to delay on the part of defendants,” argued Fogel.

Moon ruled that Fogel may amend his complaint to include subsequent FOIA requests filed on behalf of the individual plaintiffs. “The whole purpose of FOIA is so clear,” said Moon. “I don’t understand why the city makes these arguments that people can’t get this information. What governmental purpose could it serve to have a government not have to do this? It’s inconceivable.”

FOIA suit moves ahead

@cville_weekly

During its Monday night meeting, Charlottes­ ville City Council passed a resolution renaming two city streets. Part of Lankford Avenue is now Dr. Alvin Edwards Drive, honoring the longtime pastor of Mount Zion First African Baptist Church. A portion of Ridge McIntire Street was also renamed Vinegar Hill Boulevard to acknowledge the thriving Black neighborhood that was razed during urban renewal in 1965.

F

ive years after August 12, 2017, when white supremacists clashed with counterprotesters in Charlottesville, former vice mayor Wes Bellamy stood before a crowd at the Jefferson School and announced through a megaphone, “We are not only survivors, we are thrivers.” “We won,” he said. “We will continue to win.” Bellamy’s speech at the school was one stop during last Friday’s walking vigil that retraced the steps of counterprotesters on August 12. It began with a service at First Baptist Church on West Main Street, and continued with participants of all ages making their way through McGuffey Park, to Congregation Beth Israel and the Downtown Mall, and finally the memorial at Heather Heyer Way, where the crowd erupted into a rendition of “This Little Light of Mine.” At the outset, Bellamy aimed to keep spirits high, reminding walkers, “This is not a funeral procession. … I don’t want to see any heads bowed.”

Lawsuit says revocation of expanded early release credits violates rights By Courteney Stuart courteney@c-ville.com

I

n June, when the Virginia General Assembly approved Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s budget amendment reducing the number of people eligible for early release from Virginia prisons through a new expanded earned sentence credit law, prison reform advocates cried foul. About 500 people, who’d been expecting to go home immediately after the law went into effect on July 1, suddenly learned they were no longer eligible. Now, an incarcerated man has filed suit against the head of the Virginia Department of Corrections alleging his continued incarceration is unlawful, and demanding his immediate release. “The impact he’s suffering is very similar to that of the stories I’ve heard now from hundreds of other inmates and their loved ones who are going through the same thing,” says attorney Elliott Harding, who is representing Derrick Renaldo Edmonds in the suit filed August 9 in Richmond Circuit Court against DOC Director Harold Clarke. The expanded earned sentence credit law passed the General Assembly during a special session in November 2020. Its effective date was delayed by nearly two years to provide the DOC time to calculate new release dates and prepare for expanded reentry services. The new law increased the amount of “good time” an incarcerated person could earn from 15 percent up to 30 percent. The expanded earned sentence credits applied only to nonviolent offenses, but individuals who had sentences for both nonviolent and violent offenses could earn the extra time for their nonviolent crimes. Critics of the law claimed it would result in thousands of violent criminals flooding an unprepared reentry system and putting the public at risk. “Releasing a population of inmates early, 62% of whom are incarcerated for violent offenses, is not the solution to the growing crime spike across the Commonwealth,” the spokesperson for Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares wrote in an emailed statement in May.

When the opponents of the enhanced earned sentence credit failed to amend the new law during regular session, Youngkin added a budget amendment making anyone with a violent offense ineligible to earn expanded good time on their nonviolent charges, suddenly upending expectations and plans already made by hundreds of incarcerated people and their families. With support from several Senate Democrats who had previously voted for the new law, and the absence of several House Democrats at the time of the vote, the budget amendment passed. Harding says the process was not only unfair but unlawful, leaving Edmonds and hundreds of others with feelings of grief, confusion, and isolation. “That kind of goes to a fundamental aspect of this whole case … how arbitrary this was and how unplanned and how there’s no sense of clarity or certainty within the department or the General Assembly, really, as to what’s going to happen going forward,” says Harding, who notes that the budget amendment only prevents these people’s release under expanded sentence credits for the two years the budget is in effect. Edmonds, who is serving a 35-year sentence for multiple counts of robbery and attempted robbery as well as using a firearm in the commission of a felony, had completed all the rehabilitative requirements for early release and had obtained health insurance and a DMV-issued identification card. As a result of the amendment, the suit says, he has suffered “severe mental anguish.” A spokesperson for the Department of Corrections declined to comment on an ongoing lawsuit. A hearing has not yet been scheduled. At press time, the ACLU of Virginia filed a similar habeas petition in Albemarle Circuit Court challenging the rollback on behalf of another inmate. Courteney Stuart is the host of “Charlottes­ ville Right Now” on WINA. You can hear her interview with attorney Elliott Harding at wina.com.

New UVA exhibit shows student resistance during Unite the Right rally

Former UVA students who protested against white supremacists on August 11, 2017, have created a new exhibit sharing their personal narratives of the deadly Unite the Right rally.

By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com

“We’re trying to build a world where there are no neo-Nazis and white supremacists.” HANNAH RUSSELL-HUNTER, EXHIBIT CO-CURATOR

Since interim Charlottesville City Manager Michael Rogers announced this month that the city would not be terminating an employee who participated in the January 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, there’s been community backlash—and the decision has stirred up concern among other city employees. One employee (who wishes to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation) disagrees with the city’s claims that it cannot discipline the employee—IT analyst Allen Groat, who works with emergency services—because Groat has not been charged with any crimes related to the insurrection. The employee believes Groat should have been fired back in 2020, when he pleaded guilty to aggressive driving with intent to injure after pulling a gun on a woman at a red light. The employee, who works with Groat, says the city’s refusal to discipline him for his actions has increased concern for their—and their co-workers’—safety. “It’s pretty serious what [Groat] tried to do, and it shows him to be an unstable person … especially in light of the Virginia Beach shooting,” says the employee, referring to the 2019 mass shooting during which a city employee fatally shot 12 people at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center. Groat also has access to sensitive information about city residents and employees, which the employee worries he could use to target minorities. “He is homophobic, anti-Semitic, [and] part of the most violent racist people in this country,” says the employee. By allowing a potentially dangerous person to remain on staff, the employee claims the city is in violation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, which states that employers must provide “a place of employment [free] from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm.” Matthew Lawless, who previously worked in the city’s Human Resources Department, and now serves as Scottsville’s town administrator, believes Rocky Mount, Virginia, handled a similar situation “really well.” Last January, former town manager James Ervin fired two insurrectionist police officers, who were charged with offenses related to the insurrection. “[Their town manager] thought their conduct reflected very poorly on the reputation of the town, and that was all he needed,” adds Lawless.—Brielle Entzminger

the Right rally. The exhibit also features a controversial video of Sullivan claiming that no one told the university administration about the tiki torch march. (A 2017 report by former university counsel Tim Heaphy found that the university administration was warned of the impending violence, and did not properly prepare for and respond to the march.) The exhibit also details the decades-long history of student activism at UVA—including the fight for desegregation and coeducation—and criticizes the university, city leadership, and police for not taking action against rally organizers or preventing the violent events. To provide further historical context and background, the exhibit includes QR codes linking to news articles, City Council meeting minutes, the Sines v. Kessler civil lawsuit, and other important sources. As the fifth anniversary of the rally heightened the nationwide focus on Charlottesville, Russell-Hunter believes it’s especially critical to uplift survivor and organizer voices, and reflect on what has—and hasn’t—changed in the city since 2017. She hopes visitors will come away from the exhibit with an increased recognition and appreciation of “the rich history of organizing” at UVA and in the community, she says. “I hope that this is a starting point for more research and curiosity about the city, the [rally], and all of the circumstances around it,” adds Russell-Hunter. “We have such a deeper history to learn from.” “No Unity Without Justice” will be on display until October 29.

uring the now-infamous tiki torch rally at the University of Virginia, hundreds of white supremacists marched across Grounds on the evening of August 11, 2017. Shouting racist and antiSemitic chants like “White lives matter” and “Jews will not replace us,” the group later surrounded and attacked student counterprotesters at the Thomas Jefferson statue in front of the Rotunda, throwing lit torches, spraying pepper spray, and hurling threats and slurs. Five years later, students who took a stand against these white supremacists are sharing their personal narratives from the deadly Unite the Right rally in a new UVA library exhibit entitled “No Unity Without Justice: Student and Community Organizing During the 2017 Summer of Hate.” Last week, the 37-item exhibit opened to the public at the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library. “It was really healing to be able to articulate a lot of things that I had been journaling about, [and] processing on my own and with fellow survivors and students over the past couple of years,” says co-curator and UVA alumna Hannah Russell-Hunter, who was a student counterprotester at the August 11 rally. Kendall King, a fellow UVA alumna and community organizer, first approached Russell-Hunter about creating the exhibit in 2019, but the pandemic forced them to put the project on hold until this year. In partnership with Jalane Schmidt, the UVA Democracy Initiative’s Memory Project di-

rector, King worked with guest alumni curators Russell-Hunter and Natalie Romero, as well as Memory Project postdoctoral fellow Gillet Rosenblith, to collect personal artifacts from student and community counterprotesters, including: a shoulder bag used by an activist as a shield on August 11, a tear gas canister launched at counterprotesters during the August 12 rally, and activist Emily Gorcenski’s dossier—which she provided to Charlottesville leadership before the rallies—detailing violent threats made online by Unite the Right organizers and attendees. Throughout the curation process, the alumni consulted with and gathered input from community members. Particularly moving to Russell-Hunter is a photo of student counterprotesters holding a banner that says “VA Students Act Against White Supremacy,” while they’re surrounded by white supremacists during the torch-lit rally. On the first anniversary of the rally, she created a collage of flowers and placed them over the white supremacists in the photo, symbolizing activists’ efforts to deplatform white supremacy. “Not only are we resisting neo-Nazis and white supremacists … [but] we’re trying to build a world where there are no neo-Nazis and white supremacists,” she says. “[And] where there is going to be no future Unite the Right rally 2.0.” Other Summer of Hate artifacts on display include Russell-Hunter’s original draft of UVA Students United’s demands to the university, as well as her notes from a meeting student activists had with former UVA president Teresa Sullivan following the Unite

Steve Keene has produced more than 300,000 paintings in his lifetime, so when we asked our readers to share images of the prolific artist’s work that they own, we were delighted by the brisk response. Here’s a look at some of the Keenes that are displayed locally.

its denizens, ensuring that his art is accessible to nearly anyone. To date, Keene has produced over 300,000 paintings. But for the artist, it’s been one big painting. “The individual plywood panels are just puzzle pieces that together make up one great masterpiece,” he says. Keene’s Brooklyn studio is a large cage of sorts, constructed of cyclone fencing that provides 80 linear feet in which to work. He paints assembly-line fashion on plywood boards hung in multiples on the fencing, producing the same image simultaneously.

Daniel Efram spent six years gathering material from art collectors, friends, and associates of Keene’s to create The Steve Keene Art Book, a comprehensive survey of the artist’s career.

He moves down the row adding the same dab of paint until he reaches the end. Going back to the beginning, he takes another color and repeats the cycle, over and over until the group is completed. Though the image is the same, the works aren’t identical; variations occur as he goes down the line. He paints eight hours a day, five to six days each week. It’s physically demanding and obsessive. On an average day, Keene runs through five gallons of latex and acrylic paint and produces about 50 works. “It’s like making a hundred pizzas or a hundred birthday cakes at the same time,” he says. And when he finishes painting, the job’s not done—Keene packs and ships about 18-20 orders each week. Though he’s garnered plenty of attention, with museum exhibitions in Cologne, Germany, and Melbourne, Australia, as well as Los Angeles, Houston, and Santa Monica, along with appearances in Time magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and on NPR, Keene has never cashed in in the way art stars Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons did. His model of cheap multiples doesn’t support their kind of revenue. Keene is after something more enduring than money, and he may just achieve it. Certainly, The Steve Keene Art Book goes a long way toward elevating his profile and providing context for the prolific artist. Keene considers the demand for his work an affirmation and enjoys hearing where his paintings end up, such as the late Dennis Hopper’s L.A. bathroom, and in the hands of influential New York Times art critic Roberta Smith. Original Steve Keenes can still be ordered from his website stevekeene.com. For $70, he’ll send you a random selection of six paintings, sometimes more. There’s a backlog of orders, but knowing Keene’s character and workmanlike approach, you’ll get them eventually.

selecting images that were designed to be seen. Knowing this, you can see the particular appeal of album covers. It’s tempting to label Keene’s work as outsider art or visionary art on account of its DIY, raw, manic quality. But Keene holds an MFA from Yale (he went to VCU for his BA). Far from being a naïve artist, Keene incorporates conceptualism, installation, and performance art into his work. His low prices and enormous output is a revolutionary act, defying the established art world with its preciousness and “the ‘pickled’ coolness” of

August 17 ‑ 23, 2022 c-ville.com

f you lived in Charlottesville in the early ’90s, you’re probably familiar with Steve Keene’s art. Keene worked as a dishwasher at Monsoon Café, which opened on the Downtown Mall in 1992, and owner Lu-Mei Chang gave him free rein to paint the walls, tables, and chairs. Chang’s early efforts to promote Keene are immortalized in an essay by her daughter, Elle, which appears alongside terrific pieces by Sam Brumbaugh, Shepard Fairey, and Ryan McGinness, among others, in The Steve Keene Art Book, produced by Daniel Efram. Efram spent six years gathering material from art collectors, friends, and associates of Keene’s to create this comprehensive survey of his career. The book comprises 265 pages, over 200 of which are images of Keene’s work drawn from more than 600 submissions from around the world. Spencer Lathrop of Spencer’s 206, a funky second-hand CD purveyor and coffee shop that was situated on the ground floor of what is now Common House, was an early Keene promoter. At Lathrop’s comfy, casual, and authentically hip establishment, you could browse the selection of used CDs, or get a coffee and sit in one of the mismatched chairs by the plant-filled window. Along with the coffee and CDs, Lathrop had bins of Steve Keenes for sale. In nice weather, he’d move the bins outside with an honor system box where you’d slip in the money. The paintings, almost always on plywood panels, cost a dollar, sometimes two. I was drawn to the unusual flickering quality of the paint and arresting subject matter paired with enigmatic titles. And the price was right. As I filled up my arms, shelling out the requisite bills, I didn’t think much about the work beyond its aesthetic appeal (which has held fast all these years). I was not alone. You began to see Steve Keene paintings popping up all over Charlottesville. To paraphrase Keene, it was bleeding into the landscape. “I was obsessed with leaving a mark, leaving a trace of me,” says the man whose goal was to be the Johnny Appleseed of art. After his wife, Star, finished architecture school, the Keenes left town and the continuous supply of paintings dried up. The couple had been immersed in Charlottesville’s music scene and had UVA student friends who’d go on to form the bands Silver Jews and Pavement. In New York, they were swept up into the burgeoning indie music scene. “The music world was my world,” says Keene, 64. “That was our community, and so my art kind of mirrored that community.” The Steve Keene Art Book captures the era’s atmosphere with vivid descriptions of the Threadwaxing Space, an alternative art and live music venue in downtown Manhattan that “was regularly packed with Keene’s bright, inexpensive paintings, and everyone bought one—or five.” While continuing to make his art, Keene worked with musicians on album covers and merch. He also continued painting portraits of album covers, an ongoing project commenced during his days as a DJ at WTJU. As the book points out, Keene has always painted pictures of pictures, or more precisely, pictures of the simulated world,

Fire of Love

PG, 93 minutes Violet Crown Cinema

It’s rare to see a documentary that is so extraordinarily strong in certain respects and so weak in others, but Fire of Love has so much in its favor that it’s worthwhile viewing. The film clocks in at 93 minutes (a miracle in these days of ridiculously overlong movies), proving that economy is an artistic virtue. Fire of Love is a vivid reminder that all it takes to make exciting spectacles beyond mainstream Hollywood’s explosive CGI excess is two intrepid souls with vision, bravery, and a camera.

What the Kraffts recorded isn’t dry science, but a sweeping visual feast.

is largely well-written, but her delivery is tonally completely wrong for this epic tale. Aside from this misjudged artistic choice, a string of interstitial animated inserts is also jarring and unwelcome. Done in a simplistic style, they come off as twee and out of place. Like the narration, their calculated clumsiness (à la Wes Anderson) clashes with the Kraffts’ films’ majesty.

N

ational Geographic’s documentary Fire of Love is easily one of this year’s most engaging films. Its larger-than-life subjects are the late Maurice and Katia Krafft, the world’s only well-known volcanologist couple. Devoted to studying volcanoes closely, the Kraffts shot astonishing footage under extremely dangerous conditions. The intensity of the film relies on the couple’s fascinating archives, but an unfortunate series of precious animated vignettes and pretentious narration partly undercut the story’s extraordinary power. From the 1960s until their death in July 1991 on Japan’s Mount Unzen, the Kraffts led globetrotting lives, exploring volcanoes as intimately as humanly possible. Throughout the film, we see them venture into risky situations that most people would avoid at all costs. Maurice Krafft aptly refers to their lives as “a kamikaze existence lived in the beauty of volcanic things.” In contemporary interviews, the pair come off as personable and warm, making light of the life-threatening

circumstances their métier took them to. The Kraffts were daredevils, but with a quiet courage and cheerfulness that makes them all the more appealing. What the Kraffts recorded isn’t dry science, but a sweeping visual feast. Countless hours of film are distilled into mesmerizing montages of volcanic power, alternating between epic eruptions and smaller, specific details of their aftermath. The scenes of devastation volcanoes leave in their wake are chilling. The tight shots of glowing molten lava, pyroclastic flows, and other volcanic phenomena become almost abstract. The volcanoes are the true stars of Fire of Love, and in what is likely a cinematic first, they get screen credits. The Kraffts were fully aware of how puny human beings appear alongside their subjects’ primeval fury, and their footage continually bears this out. The film also explores the pair’s daily life and work between missions. Occasionally, they take even wilder risks, like when Maurice goes rafting on a lake that’s mostly sulfuric acid. Where the flow ebbs in Fire of Love is in its narration, delivered in a pretentious deadpan by actress Miranda July. The text

We have a new crush—it’s free of GMOs, pesticides, and hormones, and full of flavor. The Shops at Stonefield welcomed Organic Krush Lifestyle Eatery in July to the delight of Charlottesville health nuts (and nut nuts). OK is all in on its mission to make delicious, healthy food available in a fast-casual setting, and the small, independent chain is as intent on being good for our community as it is on being good for our health. Through September, Organic Krush will donate $1 from every sale of their Krush Classic Entrées to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, so you will feel extra good when you treat yourself to a helping of gluten-free, dairy-free Spicy Korean BBQ, complete with mushrooms, zucchini, and spicy kimchi.

How ’bout them apples? Trail rides in Virginia just got juicier. The American Cider Association has launched the Digital Virginia Cider Trail as a way of celebrating the many great orchards and cideries throughout the state, including Charlottesville’s own Potter’s Craft Cider. The program is free, and offers deals for those partaking at any of the 29 participating cideries. With each location visited from now until the end of June 2023, guests can get a digital passport stamp (ciderculture.com), which enters them into the Cider Trail Raffle. Meanwhile, the eastern area of Central Virginia has developed its own trail of quaffable goodness. Route 231’s wineries, breweries, meaderies, cideries, and distilleries became an official tourist attraction when Governor Glenn Youngkin stopped at Keswick Vineyards in June to snip the ribbon and let the bevvies flow along the 50-mile state highway.

Beyond the pale Starr Hill Brewery has partnered with UVA to release Wahoo Pale Ale. The fruity,

hop-forward ale, available throughout the commonwealth, is an homage to UVA and a rumor that the university’s students are called Wahoos for a type of fish that can drink twice its own body weight. There’s little evidence that this is where the name actually comes from, but hoo needs proof to enjoy a refreshing beverage?

Portion control Hot woks coming through! The newest addition to 5th Street Station is Pei Wei Asian Kitchen, a fast-casual take on classic Asian street food developed by celebrity chef Jet Tila, who’s known for setting records with large portions. Tila made the world’s largest stir fry (4,010 pounds) and the world’s longest California roll, which measured 440 feet long. However, it’s going to take more than a Food Network star connection to compete with the muchloved, well-established Chimm, serving from-scratch Thai and Southeast Asian street food just a few steps away.

Colonel Mustard, in the lounge Want to dress up and dine in elegant Southern comfort? Look no further than the newly reopened (under new ownership) Bobboo at the Quirk Charlottesville. This intimate, lavishly decorated bar gives off a mansion drawing room vibe that may cause you to wonder who murdered the butler. Bobboo has a small, seasonal menu that includes some Quirk classics as well as a curated selection of whiskeys from Virginia and beyond.— Will Ham

2021 Viogneir The Viognier grape was almost extinct in the 1960’s, with only 35 acres growing in France, but Virginia has played a big role in its dynamic comeback. While the color and aroma may suggest a sweet wine, Viogniers are predominantly dry and are known for producing heavy aromatics with low acidity. Our 2021 vintage is fruit forward with a creamy feel and light acidity, making it delightful to sip or pair with food.

By Rob Brezsny

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In his poem “The Pupil,” Virgo-born Donald Justice speaks of how he spent “a whole week practicing for that moment on the threshold.” I advise you to do the same, Virgo. The goal is to be as prepared as you can be for the upcoming rite of transition—without, of course, being neurotically over-prepared. It’s fine and natural to honor the tension of anticipation, using it as motivation to do your best. One other thing: As you get ready, please have as much fun as possible. Visualize the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when you’ve reached the other side of the test.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “One is always at home in one’s past,” wrote author Vladimir Nabokov. But I encourage you to rebel against that theory, Libra. For now, find a way to not feel at home in your past. Question it, be curious about it, re-evaluate it. My hope is that you will then be motivated to change how your history lives in you. Now is an excellent time to reconfigure your life story, to develop a revised relationship with its plot twists and evolution. Revisit and update some of your memories. Re-evaluate the meanings of key events. Enchanting healings will materialize if you do.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Scorpios are most likely to regard that old pop tune by the Animals as your theme song. “I’m just a soul whose intentions are good,” croons lead singer Eric Burdon, “Oh, Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.” But you may have less motivation to express that sentiment in the coming weeks, dear Scorpio. I suspect you will experience record-breaking levels of being seen and appreciated for who you are. For best results, do this: 1. Inform your deep psyche that you have no attachment to being misunderstood. 2. Tell your deep psyche that you would very much like to be well understood.

Sagittarius

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): “I’ve swung from ancient vines in the caves of Jamaica,” exults Hoodoo priestess Luisah Teish. “I’ve danced with delight around totem poles and pressed foreheads with Maori warriors. I’ve joked with the pale fox in the crossroads, then wrestled with the jaguar and won. I have embraced great trees between my thighs and spoken words of love to thunder while riding lightning bolts.” I offer Teish’s celebratory brag to inspire you as you formulate plans for the coming weeks and months. What exhilarating adventures will you give yourself? What expansive encounters will you learn from? What travels outside of your comfort zone will you dare? The time is right for upsurges and upturns and upgrades.

rainbow, my little music, my inexpressible delight, my tenderness, my lightness, my dear life, my dear eyes, kittykin, poochums, goosikins, sparrowling, bird of paradise.”

restless urge to transform what already exists can be expressed in how we do our jobs, our parenting, our intimate relationships, and every other activity. You are now entering a phase, Sagittarius, when this initiatory energy will be especially available, needed, and valuable.

Pisces

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In her poem “Valentine,” Capricorn poet Carol Ann Duffy tells a lover she won’t give her a “red rose or a satin heart.” Instead, her token of affection is an onion, a symbol of multi-layered complexity. “Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,” Duffy writes, “possessive and faithful as we are, for as long as we are.” She adds that the onion will “blind you with tears like a lover.” Okay. I understand the tough attitude expressed by Duffy. Romance isn’t a relentlessly sweet, sentimental romp through paradise. But I don’t recommend that you imitate her approach to your love life in the coming weeks and months. Appreciate the sometimes shadowy and labyrinthine convolutions, yes, but don’t make them more important than beauty and joy and love. How about invoking the symbol of a pomegranate? It represents fertility and rebirth out of the darkness.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be extra expressive with the people and animals you care about. Be even more amusing and generous than usual. Dare to be abundantly entertaining and engaging and empathetic. Make it your goal to draw out your allies’ dormant potentials and inspire them to love themselves even more than they already do. I’ll tell you about the endearing terms that author Vladimir Nabokov called his wife. Consider using them with your dear ones: “My sun, my soul, my song, my bird, my pink sky, my sunny

(Feb. 19-March 20): Sometimes, you may feel you’re under the influence of a debilitating spell or hindered by a murky curse. Pisceans are prone to such worries. But here’s a secret. More than any other zodiac sign, you have the power to escape from spells. Even if you have never studied the occult or read a witch’s grimoire, you possess a natural facility for the natural magic that disperses curses. From the depths of your psyche, you can summon the spiritual force necessary to cleanse the gunk and free yourself. Now is a perfect time to prove to yourself that what I’ve said here is true.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Aries filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky wrote, “All my life, I’ve been going around waiting for something—as if I were waiting in a railway station. And I’ve always felt as if the living I’ve done so far hasn’t actually been real life but a long wait for it—a long wait for something real.” If I could speak with Tarkovsky right now, I would cheerfully tell him that his wait will soon be over. I’d say that in the coming months, Aries people who have been postponing and postponing, who have been standing by and holding on and biding time, will have an excellent chance to begin inhabiting their full, rich destiny. I invite you to imagine what that will feel like.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Taurus poet Sherko Bekas wrote, “Each joy I wear, its sleeves are either too short or too long, too loose or too tight

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Tips on how to get the most out of the coming weeks: 1. Create a big spacious realization by weaving together several small hunches. 2. Keep a little angel on your right shoulder and a little devil on your left shoulder. Enjoy listening to them argue, and don’t get attached to anything they say. 3. Do the unexpected until it becomes expected. Then abandon it and try a new, unexpected experiment. 4. Meditate expansively on the question, How many careers can I have in one lifetime? 5. Enhance your home so it feels even more comfortable.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Be fluid and flexible while still being rooted and sturdy. Be soft and sensitive even as you are also firm and resolute. Be mostly modest and adaptable, but become assertive and outspoken as necessary. Be cautious about inviting and seeking out challenges, but be bold and brash when a golden challenge arrives. Be your naturally generous self most of the time, but avoid giving too much. Got all that, Cancerian? Carrying out the multifaceted assignments I just described might be nearly impossible for most of the other signs of the zodiac, but they are in your wheelhouse. You are a specialist in fertile complexity. Expanded weekly audio horoscopes and daily text message horoscopes: RealAstrology.com, (877) 873-4888

on me. And each sorrow I wear fits as if it were made for me wherever I am.” With this as our starting point, Taurus, I’m pleased to report some good news. In the next three weeks, you will have zero sorrows to try on and wear like a garment. And there will be at least three joys that fit just right. The sleeves will be the correct length, and the form will be neither too loose nor too tight.

She believed that to be soulful humans, we must always make new things, generate fresh possibilities, and explore novel approaches. The

rea literary buffs, devotees of the printed page in a state with the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and a city with a great university: What’s cooler than a pop-up bookstore in a vintage camper? Stumped? Here’s an easier one: How many bookstores are there in and around Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall? At the time of this writing, four. How many local authors are nationally read and celebrated? By last count . . . You get the picture; pick a font and write the caption. You can’t plop down a book in a coffee shop around here without heads turning to see the title. You can’t open a Word file without folks presuming it’s a manuscript. And they may be right. Here in Charlottesville especially, but all around the area, we love our authors and we cherish our books: We read ‘em, we write ‘em and we donate ‘em to the library book sale to make room on our shelves for more. We have the annual Virginia Festival of the Book, five days of readings, talks, panel discussions, and school visits by popular and prominent authors, plus workshops for writers. We have excellent privately owned shops carrying books from roughly the time when writing was invented to this past Tuesday, and we

have used bookshops where the vintage of the volume and its unknown history connect us to a previous reader we can only imagine.

Heartwood It’s only natural that a town with a school like UVA should have a great used bookstore practically across the street. And it does. Heartwood Books on Elliewood Avenue (on “the Corner”), which owner Paul Collinge opened in 1975, is one of the oldest bookstores in town, and one of the most delightfully jam-packed. Walk up the three outside steps, open the door, inhale the paper smell, and enter: the aisles are narrow, the shelves and tables are overflowing. It’s an atmosphere that gives serious readers a good feeling. “The history of literature is sort of our main thing,” says Art Collier, the man most likely to be seen behind the Heartwood desk, talking books and making recommendations. “We’re especially interested in good fiction, some literary criticism, and books about Thomas Jefferson.” Excellent sections of volumes on the classics, the arts and performing arts, Virginia history, philosophy, and pretty much everything else the general reader loves are to be found here—and to be savored slowly. “The fine art of browsing is being

lost,” Collier laments. But not at Heartwood. This may be the digital age, but “the people who come in to the shop love to browse, love to hold their books.” They value that “tactile connection to reading. “People are just so complimentary all the time,” he says enthusiastically, “People who haven’t visited for a long time are always so happy that we’re still here. They’ll say ‘Half of my library came from you.’ It’s a wonderful experience; people feel such loyalty to us, from all over the country and even the world.”

Daedalus Bookshop Bookish types know Stephen Dedalus of James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man and Ulysses. They also know the original Daedalus (with an “a” before the “e”), the mythological Cretan inventor who designed the labyrinth to contain the Minotaur (and later the wings with which his son Icarus flew too close to the sun, which melted them and plunged him to a watery death). Owner Sandy McAdams meant to name his new used bookshop on 4th Street NE after Joyce’s first anti-hero when he painted the lovely tile sign flanking the door of the business back 1976 or so. But he accidentally spelled it like the hapless father. When he realized his mistake, he decided it was too much

trouble to fix. Exploring Daedalus and perhaps laying yourself a trail of intended purchases, the better to find your way out after wandering its three floors with their 100,000 books, you might say his memory slip was fitting. “We’ve got a map, or you can look around,” newcomers might be told. Daedalus is a well-stuffed labyrinth that bibliophiles get happily lost in. McAdams, who co-opened Charlottesville’s venerable C & O Restaurant as well, may not be in the shop much anymore, but “his eclectic thumbprint” is all through it, the shop’s Seth Millner says. “A lot of this was a passion project for him over the years. It’s really just a mountain of books. He runs it almost like an adoption center, and it’s a place to treasure hunt more than anything else.” Look for the poetry and literary magazines upstairs.

Blue Whale Books A blue whale head sits on top of the signboard advertising rare and out of print books, original prints, and antiquarian maps outside of Blue Whale Books on the west end of the Downtown Mall. Owner Scott Fennessey was thinking of naming his place the Leviathan when he opened it in 1994, but decided a less dark and heavy name was called for. Everyone loves blue whales, don’t

they? And they love the store’s sole feline employee, Gizmo. Nowadays some customers head straight to the back of the shop, to the full room’s worth of art books and bios. Others are drawn by the antiquarian books or the thousands of original prints from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, as well as original maps from as early as the 1500s. Recently added are five whole shelves’ worth of Medieval studies volumes. Shelves of newly acquired volumes flank the doorway. “We focus on books that are in excellent condition,” says manager Andrew Hniat, the main buyer and cataloger of the shop’s inventory. “Sometimes people don’t realize that it’s a used bookstore. They comment on the selection, and they love how organized it is; they can find what they want.”

2nd Act Books

THE REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.C-VILLE.COM

Just across the Mall from the Paramount Theater is a spot that’s been full of books for a quarter of a century or more—or so estimates Daphne Spain, owner of 2nd Act Books, its current in-

carnation. Spain has been running the shop that used to be Read It Again, Sam since 2019. “I had been a volunteer there when I was teaching at UVA,” she remembers. “I would go in every week”—and as her website has it, “she wielded a fierce feather duster.” Today, like all of Charlottesville’s privately owned booksellers, 2nd Act has character, a comfortable lived in—read in—feel to it. When she reopened the store under its new name, Spain says, “I knew I needed a different niche. “The kids is what I focused on—and outreach to the African-American community.” Look around and you’ll note her children’s section with its train set, its puzzle on the table, and its space to read. Of 2nd Act’s 15,000 books—nonfiction, fiction, sci-fi, mysteries, history including Black history, science, and much else—a couple of thousand are for kids.

New Dominion Bookshop New Dominion Bookshop on the Mall opened way back in 1924, making it the oldest bookstore in the Commonwealth.

A gentleman named C.C.—for Christopher Columbus—Wells bought it in 1926, and ran it in several downtown locations until 1987, when it was purchased by one of his employees, Carol Troxell, who made the store a center for Charlottesville literary life with regular readings and signings by both local and nationally known authors. Julia Kudravetz, co-founder of the monthly Charlottesville Reading Series featuring poetry and prose, purchased New Dominion, now Charlottesville’s only independent new bookshop, in October of 2017 after Troxell’s untimely death, and has carried on the shop’s much valued traditions, including what she calls “old-fashioned touch things.” Things like helping customers eager for recommendations, something members of the staff, several of whom are writers or have graduate degrees in the humanities to their names, are well-qualified for. There is a lot to choose from. “We try to carry all kinds of writing,” Kudravetz says, and that includes volumes on everything from gardening, art, and interior design, to history, philosophy, biography and memoir, plus no small amount of serious fiction and poetry—“literary things you wouldn’t find,” she notes at a chain store. Not to forget the kids either: “I love having the kids section,” Kudravetz says. “I love it that we’re not a separate children’s and adult store. Adults like to read Calvin and Hobbes sometimes.” More than that, New Dominion is more of a community hub than ever. Its book club, with an average attendance of about 25 people, meets once a month, up the flight of stairs at the back of the store, or in the lovely mature rose garden just out the window. The UVA Creative Writing Department holds readings Thursday evenings. More open-to-the-public readings and book talks take place Friday and Saturday evenings. “We are lucky that John Grisham has had a wonderful relationship with the Bookshop for many, many years,” says Kudravetz. “He comes and he signs inscriptions for people.” Other authors who maintain similar ties to the shop include fantasy writer Alex Harrow, and Jocelyn Nicole Johnson, whose collection of short stories, My Monticello, garnered much critical acclaim.

Crozet’s Bluebird Bookstop One great place to find popular fiction is just out of town in Crozet at Blue-

bird Bookstop. Flannery Buchanan, a mother of four avid readers, established it to provide a community hub for eager bibliophiles in her area. Buchanan began in April 2021 with a piece of vintage vacation equipment more associated with public parks than private libraries: a 1966 Banner custom camper she filled with books and took around to wineries, breweries, craft festivals and the like. “People would come to the trailer wherever I was and they’d have a drink and we’d all sit around talking,” Buchanan says. That led to Bluebird’s “bookish meet-ups”—“friends hanging out” talking about whatever they’re currently reading. In the meantime, Buchanan found a

spot in Crozet on Three Notch’d Road, opened a regular terra firma bookstore, and stocked it with “new and notable” volumes including young adult and graphic novels, and kids’ books. Today along with meet-ups there are frequent events including author’s readings, a new mom’s group and, yes, a book club. Once a month or so, the bookmobile still goes someplace fun.

A Community of Readers “People come in and say, ‘Oh my gosh, you’ve got four bookstores right here on the Mall,’ Daphne Spain says. Spain made a business card size map with all four of them on it for her employees to give to customers who can’t find what they want at 2nd Act. She even took them around to the other three bookstores. “I think it makes us more of a bookstore community,” she says. “There is this whole community of book readers out there.” Art Collier agrees. “No matter what country you come from, no matter how old or how young you are, when you come into our shop,” he says—and he might as well be speaking for them all—“you are part of that community.” Indeed.
