Where we are this week

The Kentucky Humanities Council programs are in action across the state this week.

First, our Between Fences Smithsonian Institute exhibit continues at Wrather West Kentucky Museum on Murray State University’s campus until April 18. For more information about the museum, click here.

Prime Time Family Reading Time programs are underway in Boone, Adair and Mason counties. These programs reach out to reluctant readers ages 6 to 10 and their parents with the message to “read.” In each of six weekly sessions, a discussion leader and storyteller lead programs for families that demonstrate effective reading techniques. The books introduced to children and their parents explore timeless issues of humanity — fairness, greed, courage, coping and determination — while helping them understand the dynamics of making life choices.

Finally, our Chautauqua performances and Speakers Bureau engagements this week include: (All events in Kentucky unless otherwise noted.)

April 8: Mary Owens: Lincoln’s First Mary Chautauqua, 1 p.m., Willard Elementary, Busy.

April 9: African and African-American Musical Connections in Appalachia with presenter Kathy W. Bullock, 7 p.m., Emma B. Ward Elementary School Library, Lawrenceburg.
