Kathryn Witt’s Cincinnati Scavenger challenges you to figure out riddles, learn region; book signings

Local author Kathryn Witt has book signing and mini-scavenger hunt events in December for Cincinnati Scavenger, published by Reedy Press.

Witt’s new book is a fun, challenging, and memory-making way to explore the city on foot as you uncover its mystery and history among the diverse neighborhoods of the Queen City’s region.

Take your family or a group of friends to puzzle out 345 riddles and clues spread through 19 neighborhoods — and hunt through the streets of Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana..

An avid traveler who grew up and chose to stay in Greater Cincinnati, Witt brings her love and enthusiasm for its varied and vibrant communities to this one-of-a-kind adventure, whose clues are presented entirely in rhyming verse and accompanied by visual hints.

Locals and visitors alike will be inspired to see Cincinnati in a brand-new way as they tackle one or all the clues and put their curiosity to the test.

Can you guess the clues? The main characters of a Norwegian folk tale. An outdoor lipstick. A prehistoric creature who hails from the Mesozoic Era. A restaurant linked to Shakespeare. . .Just to hint at a few.
