Join us at the Milford-Miami Township Branch on Tuesday, August 23 at 6:00PM to meet award winning local author Jinny Powers Berten. A volunteer at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, her books include Littsie of Cincinnati and Littsie and the Underground Railroad. Ms. Berten will speak about Cincinnati’s role in the Underground Railroad and how the Underground Railroad shaped Cincinnati. According to Vanessa Seeger, Youth Services Librarian, “This will be a great opportunity to meet a local author who’s incorporated extensive local history research into her stories.” While the Littsie books are targeted for readers aged 8-12, this event is for everyone. It’s an excellent opportunity for homeschoolers, adults who like to read along with the children in their lives, and anyone interested in local history.
