The Paul Sawyier Public Library is proud to host the official launch of Frankfort native Ron Rhody’s book, Concerning the Matter of the King of Craw. Set in the Roaring Twenties in Kentucky’s capital city, the story spins around John Fallis, a handsome, charismatic grocer, gambler, bootlegger, and political boss, and the two boys who fell into his orbit. Rhody will be on hand to read from and discuss his new historical fiction release, with a book signing to follow. Also featured will be Jim Wallace, well known oral historian of Frankfort’s Crawfish Bottom. Copies of the book will be available for purchase from Poor Richard’s Books.

Rhody was born and raised in Frankfort and attended both Georgetown College and the University of Kentucky. He worked as a reporter, a sportswriter, a broadcast newsman, and covered the Kentucky legislature before moving on to a career as a corporate public relations executive in New York and San Francisco, and later as a consultant to Fortune 500 companies on communications and public relations issues. He is the author of The Theo Trilogy which includes Theo’s Story, Theo & The Mouthful of Ashes, and When Theo Came Home. Rhody currently resides in Pinehurst, North Carolina with his wife, Patsy.

This free event will take place in the Library Community Room. No registration is necessary. For more information, contact Diane Dehoney at 352-2665×108 or diane@pspl.org.

7:30 – 9:30 pm – Russ Hatter’s Murder & Mayhem Walking Tour, at Capital City Museum, 325 Ann St, Frankfort

While it may be commonly known as the Singing Bridge today, Frankfort residents and capital visitors in 1894 may have referred to the bridge crossing the Kentucky River to St. Clair as the hanging bridge.

Adults brave enough to learn of the city’s unsanitized and sordid past such as this tale can be both entertained and educated starting at 7:30 p.m. every Thursday in October for the Capital City Museum’s Murder and Mayhem Tour.

Well-known Frankfort historian, actor and radio personality Russ Hatter dons a late 1800s police costume and takes groups of as many as 40 adults on walking tours through downtown Frankfort.

Taking attendees to nearly two dozen locations stained by a dark past of mob rule, shootouts and murder from the late 1800s into the early 1900s, Hatter reveals the history not told in school textbooks of the capital city’s violent and unruly past.

The Murder and Mayhem tours are every Thursday in October beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Capital City Museum located at 325 Ann St.

Tours are for adults 18 and over given the graphic, gruesome and terrifying details. Tickets are $10, and reservations are required.

For more information call 502-696- 0607 or email russh1214@gmail.com.
