March 23rd will be the day, and the Erlanger Branch of the Kenton County Public Library will be the site, of the 26th annual Northern Kentucky Regional History Day.  On the present schedule: At 9:00 a. m. Professor John Schlipp will do the opening presentation on “Music, Musicians, and Entertainers from Northern Kentucky and the Tri-State Region.”

Schlipp (an Assoc. Professor Librarian at the NKU/Steely Library) will show “the development of the region’s music, musicians, and entertainers and how their works resonate yet today.”  His research on regional music and entertainment was presented in Gateway City: Covington Kentucky, 1815-2015, the Kentucky African American Encyclopedia and The Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky.

Three sessions of workshops with three presentations in each are scheduled to follow. Topics will be about the Civil War, “the Anti-German Hysteria during World War I in the Greater Cincinnati Area,” African American troops from Boone County and about specific historical sites and other topics. Historical societies, libraries, museums, historic sites and book authors will show their publications and projects. Breakfast pastries and drinks will be at hand. There should be enough parking very close by. The Erlanger branch recently underwent a substantial expansion of library and meeting space.
