Since this can’t wait until our regular News Roundup, I wanted to make the MissPres universe aware of two events in which you might be interested. First, the Mississippi Historic Preservation Conference will be next Thursday and Friday in Natchez, and registration is open until Friday, April 30th. Second, as you may recall, two Jane’s Walks were held last year in Mississippi, celebrating the legacy of Jane Jacobs and her landmark work Death and Life of the Great American Cities. This Saturday (May 1), Jackson will be hosting another Jane’s Walk, this one downtown, beginning at the very reasonable hour of 10 AM. Meet in front of the Old Capitol and head out to get a pedestrian’s view of downtown and its architectural history. As always, I’ve added these events to the MissPres calendar, which you can always check as it’s conveniently located in the widgets over to the right under the title “Goings-On About MS.”
Also, I’ve changed the blog’s theme again–what do y’all think? This one gives a little more flexibility in the design, and also has some better navigational features than the other one. It also is supposed to print out neatly instead of all akimbo like the other theme did.
