The Wife Takes a Farmer
Tuesday, January 8, 2019
The Wife Takes a Farmer  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by: Mary Popham
The sequel to Back Home in Landing Run, Mary will discuss her latest book – The Wife Takes a Farmer.  Beginning in 1911, Emmalene goes from small town farm life to the big city of Louisville – a daunting task for women today but for a woman in the early 1900 when life was very different, it was a scary venture.  We will see life through Emmalene’s eyes as she discovers the wonders of 1900 Louisville.  We see early automobiles, Churchill Downs, the Seelbach Hotel and the Portland area to name a few.  Emmalene’s perspective is very different than the fancy ladies and gentlemen she meets on her visit.  The title of this book alone is intriguing but as usual, Mary weaves an interesting tale while enlightening us on what life was like during that time period.  With masterful ease, Mary teaches us a history lesson while entertaining us with a very intriguing story.

Come listen to this intriguing story about ROSE ISLAND Indiana, the now deserted amusement park  on the Ohio River across from the old ferry port at the end of Rose Island Road in Prospect, Kentucky. Used as the locale for her debut novel ROSE ISLAND, An Almost Accurate Account of Days Gone By,  author Terry Chambers both entertains and educates as she tells about the legends and lore surrounding this 1920s-1930s summer camp located right here in our own back yard. What a unique and fun way to look back to those people who lived in days gone by.
