Spotlight Series Lineup:

Aug. 10: Enjoy a fun slideshow presentation from Kathy and John Witt, the author/photographer duo behind Cincinnati Scavenger. The book encourages readers to explore various Greater Cincinnati neighborhoods (including seven in Northern Kentucky). Learn how to use the book, about the woman who invented scavenger hunts, Elsa Maxwell, the publishing process and more.

Aug. 17: Sixty-six men have represented the Commonwealth of Kentucky since 1792. Paul L. Whalen explores each and every one of those senators through his book of essays, Profiles of Kentucky’s United States Senators. At the event, Whalen will touch on a few of those senators.

Aug. 31: Emily Bingham, author of My Old Kentucky Home: The Astonishing Life and Reckoning of an Iconic Song, will close this year’s Spotlight Series with a look at Kentucky’s state song.
