Reflecting the culture wars of our time with humor and irony, Latent Image exposes the absurdities of language that inhibit communication between warring factions.
Having lost his parents and his wife, Tommy Tremaine feels abandonded and longs for reconnection with his twin sister Dinah after years of estrangement. In trying to maneuver through the emotional baggage that bedevils them, Tommy discovers to his horror that while he was able to cast off the religion of this youth, it’s not so easy to shed the shame that the religion had fostered in him.

Park Plaza, Lafayette
Thanks to a reader for sending word that the hugely popular, Danville-based, Sideboard Neighborhood Kitchen and Coffee Bar is opening a second location in Park Plaza in downtown Lafayette and are hoping to open in Spring, 2016. Last year we learned that the gluten-free bakery Mariposa was coming to Park Plaza as well so this is going to be a happening place this time next year! Check out their Danville morning menu here, lunch menu here, dinner menu here, and beverage menu here. As a huge fan of Sideboard I’m really excited that they’re coming to Lafayette. Still not sure where to park but hopefully parking will be available near the library?
