Murder and Mayhem in Kentucky – Session 1

Thursday, August 10th | 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Free

Join us for part one of a three-part scholar led book discussion series that will cover “true stories of bone-chilling cruelty and heart wrenching heroism” that took place in Kentucky and other Appalachian states. The anthology, Appalachian Murders and Mysteries by James M. Gifford and Edwina Pendarvis, will be utilized during the entire series.

Guest facilitators include EKU’s true crime author Keven McQueen (sessions 1 and 3), current Letcher County Sheriff Danny Webb (session 2), and current Whitesburg Mayor James Wiley Craft (session 2).

The first 20 people who register for session one will receive a free copy of the book. Recipients of the free copies are encouraged to attend all three sessions. If you do not receive a free copy, the library will have a few copies for check out or you can obtain a book through interlibrary loan. Interlibrary loans may be requested at www.laurellibrary.org and are the participant’s responsibility. Participants must register for each session separately.

Registration for session one will open at 9 am on Wednesday, July 19th.

*Initial registration has closed. Free books are no longer available on site. If you are still interested in attending to listen to the presenter only, please call Gwen at the library at 606-864-5759 for more information.
