Show Notes

     Just how much do you love where you live? To what extent does that love extend to fellow residents who profess to love the same place you do? Does it affect the way you interact with people who hold different perspectives than you?
 
     Questions like that have inspired Main Street Eureka Springs to devote the month of August to what it's calling "civic love," with a series of events examining what love of where one lives looks like and whether people can take steps to grow the love and pride they feel for the place they call home.
 
     On this episode of Speaking of Arkansas, Jacqueline Wolven, who has served as executive director of Main Street Eureka Springs for 15 years, joins host Greg Harton of the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Wolven discusses a series of events scheduled in February to explore the concept of civic love, which she suggests is needed in communities across Arkansas.
