Caudill, whose husband Harry Caudill became world famous after his book “Night Comes To the Cumberlands” was published more than a half century ago, is slated for a meet and greet this Saturday at the Scott County Public Library in Georgetown, health permitting.

“It will give visitors who come a once in a lifetime opportunity to interact with an individual who can tell some very remarkable stories about Kentucky’s history at that time and how passionate she is about social causes, literacy, and public libraries.," said Sharon Roggenkamp, media coordinator for SCPL.

Mrs. Caudill will appear alongside Terry Cummins, author of the recent book, “The Caudills of the Cumberlands, Anne’s Story of Life with Harry.” 

The event, which is free and open to the public, takes place this Saturday at 2 p.m.
