Harry Caudill, Man of Courage

May 6 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Harry Caudill, Man of Courage – Kentucky Writer & Filmmaker Jerry Deaton’s interest in the issues facing eastern Kentucky moved him to write and produce a film on the author and activist Harry Caudill of Whitesburg, Kentucky. This presentation focuses on Mr. Caudill’s life and on his provocative best selling book “Night Comes to the Cumberlands.” Deaton offers his perspectives on the social and environmental messages Mr. Caudill presented more than 50 years ago, messages perhaps as relevant today as then.
This presentation will be done through Zoom and live streamed to the library’s Facebook page on May 6 at 5:30. To join the Zoom Meeting, click this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84270132114
This program was funded in part by the Kentucky Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
