This Week in Reno is a weekly feature. Rather than trying to put up a comprehensive list of everything happening in the upcoming week, every Tuesday I’ll post a curated list of events that are noteworthy or look like fun to me. I’ll let you know which I plan to attend, so make sure to say hey if you see me!

My older daughter, Adrienne, and I took Ruby and some of her friends to the Nevada Museum of Art for their Second Saturday free museum day. There were two fun Nevada art projects for the kids to do, plus we got to see the exhibits. There’s a pretty amazing Civil War exhibit there now, by the way. Obviously going to a museum with five kids ages 9 and younger isn’t the best way to really absorb the exhibits, but we had a lot of fun. I’m pretty excited that the original Emancipation Proclamation will be displayed at the museum at the end of October in celebration of Nevada’s 150th birthday.
Literary Arts & Wine is a monthly literary reading series held at Uncorked in old downtown Truckee to promote the work of exceptional writers. I’ll be attending this weekend! Hope to see you there.
