Several events are taking place in October, and one of them involves our May speaker.  On Friday, October 5, at the EKU Libraries, Kathryn Engle will be making a presentation about the book she has edited, Madison's Heritage Rediscovered:  Stories from a Historic Kentucky County.  When she spoke to the Historical Society last May her book was in press; it was published later this summer.  With columns by Fred A. Engle, Jr. (Kathryn's grandfather) and Robert N. Grise, and with illustrations from EKU's Special Collections and Archives, the book is a fine treasure of information about historical Madison County.

The October 5 event begins at 4:00 p.m. in the Library Discovery Classroom, 204D, in the John Grant Crabbe Library.  In addition to Kathryn, Fred Engle and Robert Grise will be in attendance to discuss the contents of the book.  So, if you have a yen for the Madison County past, come and join Kathryn and participate in the discussion!  Afterwards, you are welcome to purchase an autographed copy of Madison's Heritage Rediscovered.
