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.

Participants are given the opportunity to draw an occupation based on their grade point average. They are then given the equivalent salary and proceed through the “Reality Store”.

Sponsored by Kentucky Employees Credit Union and Co-Sponsored by Franklin County Public Schools and Frankfort Independent Schools; Reality Store has been a staple in the Frankfort and Franklin County community for over 20 years.

6:30 – 7:30 pm – Book Signing: Ron Elliott, at the Paul Sawyier Public Library, 319 Wapping St, Frankfort

The Paul Sawyier Public Library is proud to host Kentucky author, Ron Elliott, as he reads from and discusses his new historical fiction release, Assassination at the State House: The Murder of Kentucky “Governor” William Goebel. In this book, Elliott examines the vitriolic 1899 political campaign, the ensuing assassination of Goebel, and the resulting political and civil turmoil of one of the darkest corners in Kentucky’s history. A book signing will follow with numbered special edition copies available for purchase. These limited editions will only be available at this event!

Ron Elliott, a native of Lincoln County, is a graduate of Stanford High School, Eastern Kentucky University, and the University of Kentucky. His background includes working on the historic Apollo missions and a stint on Kentucky’s community college system faculty. Having a relative involved in the assassination of Kentucky’s would-be governor, William Goebel, piqued his interest in history and launched a writing career. A much-in-demand member of the Kentucky Humanities Council Speakers Bureau, Elliott is the author of several books, including Inside the Beverly Hills Supper Club Fire, Through the Eyes of Lincoln, From Hilltop to Mountaintop: The Life and Legacy of One Iwo Jima Flag Raiser, American El Dorado: The Great Diamond Hoax of 1872, and Sinister Influences: Kentucky’s Fabulous Five and the Point-Shaving Scandal of 1951. He and his wife, Carol, currently live in Nelson County.

This free event is sponsored by the Friends of PSPL. It will take place in the Library Community Room, and no registration is necessary. For more information, contact Diane Dehoney at 352-2665×108 or diane@pspl.org.
