APPALACHIAN HEROES : Tuesday, July 7th, 6:30pm at the Main Library

“With flesh and bone, heart and soul, a single thread; I weave my cultural traditions and wisdom into the fabric of the human experience.” A native of eastern Kentucky, Octavia Sexton grew up in a rich tradition of storytelling, hearing stories handed down from her English, Irish, and Cherokee ancestors. Her natural dialect transports the listener into the Appalachian Mountains - where ’haints’ (ghosts) chill your blood, Jack tickles your funny bone, and the hills and hollers’ are full of surprises. Octavia also shares personal experience stories and humorous anecdotes based on her life. She attended a one room grade school in Eastern Kentucky; lived most of her growing up years without television or the convenience of indoor plumbing and had many experiences that range from the hilarious to the poignant. This event is family friendly. No registration is required.

HAUNTED HEROES : Tuesday, July 14th, 6pm at the Main Library

With over 30 years of paranormal research and ghost investigations Patti has captured many anomalies in photos, videos and audios while investigating haunted locations. Her goal as an experienced and accomplished paranormal investigator is to collect evidence to support the premise that life goes on even after death. She is very active as a ghost researcher, author, lecturer, consultant, dowser, and teacher. Her book, Ghost Hunting in Kentucky and Beyond, is widely hailed as a must-have resource for all serious ghost hunters. Patti has been teaching ghost hunting courses at the Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Lexington, Kentucky since 2001. She is currently lecturing at numerous universities, colleges, and libraries throughout the United States. This event is family friendly, no registration is required.
