Based on the Smithsonian Festival’s annual narrative stage—where visitors get up-close experiences with artists from around the world—Lincoln Days will present local festival participants sharing their stories and experiences about their role in the festival. These oral histories will be presented in the Lincoln Museum Community room on Saturday, Oct. 5.
The LaRue County Public Library will host a book signing by Eddie Price, author of Widder’s Landing, on Oct. 10.
Widder’s Landing is a historic novel about frontier life in Kentucky in the early 1800s, and the state’s role in the War of 1812. It centers around a young gunsmith from Pennsylvania who arrives in Kentucky via flatboat. He falls in love with an outlaw’s wife and learns to make whiskey.
