History on Tap — A family’s experience in the coal mines

When: 6:30 p.m. Sept. 20

Where: Hopkinsville Brewing Company

Info: Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County is hosting local storyteller Ann Roseberry who will skillfully weave a tale about her family’s experiences in the coal mines of Hopkins County, “In Coal Mining Country.” She combines an account of the Daniel Boone Mine Disaster of October 27, 1941 in Hopkins County and her family’s personal narrative of that event. Did her grandmother’s premonition or second sight keep her grandfather from being among the dead that day? She also tells the story of her paternal grandfather and his long and hard life in the mines of Western Kentucky. Did a random act of kindness save him on the day when a section of the mine collapsed?
