BCPL and Green River DAR Host Author Eddie Price

Eddie Price

If you are interested in Kentucky history, like to read historical fiction or enjoy hearing an entertaining speaker, then mark your calendars for a special event on Monday, August 18 at 6:00 p.m.  Eddie Price, author of Widder’s Landing:  Life and Love on the Kentucky Frontier, is coming to Butler County Public Library to speak about his book.  Set during the years 1811-1815, the book tells the tale of Craig Ridgeway, a 21 year-old gunsmith from Pennsylvania who rides a flatboat down the Ohio River and settles in Breckinridge County, Kentucky to try his hand at farming.  Overcoming inexperience and hardships, Craig builds a promising new life.  But good fortune comes at a high price.  The looming war with Great Britain disrupts the economy and soon overshadows Craig’s life.  He must make choices that affect others in times of conflict. Readers will recognize famous historical events woven throughout the book, such as a comet, a great earthquake, and early steamboat travel on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.  As one local reader said, “You can learn about everything from planting corn and stripping tobacco to making rifles and moonshine in this book.  With adventure, battle scenes, and romance, this novel kept me reading to see what would happen next.”

Author Eddie Price is a lifelong native of Kentucky.  A graduate of Kentucky Wesleyan College and Western Kentucky University, Eddie taught history for 36 years at Hancock County High School.  He has also taught classes for Owensboro Community and Technical College.  His presentation in Butler County is co-sponsored by the Green River Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution and the Butler County Public Library.  The program is also funded in part by the Kentucky Humanities Council, Inc. and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  The public is invited to attend this free presentation in the library meeting room on Monday, August 18 at 6:00 p.m.  Entrance is through the library’s back door.  For more information, contact Elaine Daugherty at 270 526-3513 or Kenna Martin at 270 526-4722.
