UI "Seven Southern Tales Plus One" by Dianne Lipscomb is an unhurried stroll into the hot, humid, richly complicat- ed territory of the South. Main Street Artists will host a reception with a reading June 28 in Quincy. Lip- scomb's tales unfold with lush details of slow days, gators, sweet tea and ordi- nary people who find within themselves the extraordinary. -- a people and place where courage, tradition and histo- ry combine to weave the sto- ries she tells here. It is an assortment that de- scribes the interactions of two cultures forever bound by a common history of slaves and slave owners and a deep 'abiding love for the land. Lipscomb knows where- of she speaks, having grown up in Jackson, Miss. She ex- perienced the civil rights movement and the rising leviathan of change moving through the South. Lipscomb went West at the age of 18 to San Francisco and attended college in Berkeley, where she acquired a taste for "street riots" (said with a small inward smile); she is the promise of many such in- teresting surprises. "Seven Southern Tales Plus One" addresses the in- equities of life, and the bal- ance brought about by the acts of conscious people, and sometimes, divine interven- tion. Lipscomb writes of what it is to be human, and the magic of a compassionate universe. She believes every- one is in need of compassion and she hopes her stories communicate this at a deep- er level. She feels that while J BUSINESS EQUIPMENT Sales Service Supplies T her painting is more for her- self, writing is more a ser- vice. She aspires to be an ob- server, rather than a partici- pant. Such are her tales, seven in all, with an extra, the lagniappe. It's a Southern thing. It is the extra some- thing you get beyond what you paid for; you buy a dozen donuts and they toss one in free.

Everyone is invited to a re- ception and reading by Lip- scomb at Main Street Artists' gallery, 436 Main St. in Quin- cy, at 5 p.m. Thursday, June 28. Refreshments will be served.
