12:00 – 2:00 pm – Food for Thought – John Bradford: Newspaper Publisher & More, at the Kentucky Historical Society, 100 West Broadway, Frankfort

This month’s Food for Thought program focuses on John Bradford.

Known as Kentucky’s first newspaper publisher, Bradford was much more. While editing and publishing the Kentucky Gazette, Bradford also became the state’s first book publisher and historian. He helped start Kentucky’s first public library and was a key figure in the meteoric rise of Transylvania University, whose board he chaired for most of three decades. Lexington Herald-Leader columnist Tom Eblen will speak about this fascinating early Kentuckian.

Registration required by Nov. 11. $25 KHS members; $30 other patrons. Call 502-564-1792, ext. 4558 or email nina.elmore@ky.gov.
