‘Murder and Mayhem in Kentucky’ book discussion

Join us for the third and final session of a three-part scholar led book discussion series that will cover “true stories of bone chilling cruelty and heart wrenching heroism” that took place in Kentucky and other Appalachian states. The anthology, Appalachian Murders and Mysteries by James M. Gifford and Edwina Pendarvis, will be utilized during the entire series.

The facilitator will be EKU’s true crime author Keven McQueen. He’ll discuss the murder of Mary Magdalene Pitts, the Skyline Drive murders of Don and Brenda Howard, and Charles Manson’s ties to the Tri-State area.

This session will take place on Thursday, October 12 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Kentucky Room at the Laurel County Public Library.

Registration is required. Register online at or call Gwen at 606-864-5759.
