Episode 22: Baton Rouge Books, Baton Rouge, LA
December 20, 2022
This week, we visit a shop in the making! James Curtis, founder of the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, art studio Outside Stimuli, has launched a creative fundraising campaign as he prepares to open Baton Rouge Books in 2023. He's elevating the everyday pencil holder into a medium for works of art, activism and awareness. He tells us how listeners can order their own hand-carved pencil holder, celebrating the works of Black authors and artists like Toni Morrison, Zora Neale Hurston and James Baldwin. Learn more about the project and order your own at OutsideStimuli.com.
