Forward Radio was thrilled to live broadcast for the entire duration of the 2022 How-To Festival at the main Louisville Free Public Library! Listen in as we drop-in on all kinds of workshops and talk to a wide variety of local experts and enthusiasts about everything from How to do Stage Combat, to How to Raise a Herd of Urban Goats! These are just some of the more than 50 things you could learn in five hours at the Library’s annual How-To Festival -- Saturday, May 14, 10:00 a.m–3:00 p.m. at the Main Library. This year’s Festival was a mix of past favorites—how to do Tai Chi, homebrew beer, or grow delicious tomatoes—along with new lessons, such as how to make and decorate tasty dog treats, perform modern dance, and create digital music. Other timely topics include how to plan a cross-country trip in an electric vehicle and how to buy and sell a home in a crazy market. And thanks to our continued partnership with the Louisville Urban Agriculture Coalition, How-To once again featured three gardening tents with classes presented by Urban Ag member groups, including Kentuckiana Beekeepers, Wild Ones, and Master Gardeners. The How-To Festival is FREE and takes place throughout the Main Library and surrounding grounds. https://www.lfpl.org/how-to/
This week we talk to our first mystery series author: Jess Montgomery. The first book in her 4-book Kinship mystery series is The Widows which introduces us to Lilly Ross, a wife and mother in 1920s rural Ohio whose husband Daniel, the county sheriff, is killed in the line of duty.  The town council asks Lilly to take over the sheriff’s position for the rest of the term and the first crime she wants to investigate is the murder of her husband.  Lilly Ross is inspired by a real Ohio woman named Maud Colins who also became one of the first female sheriffs in the United States after her husband, also the sherrif, was murdered.     Jess’ most recent novel, The Echoes, was published this past March and follows Lilly and the townspeople of Kinship, OH as they reckon with ghosts of World War 1 some 10 years later.  Many of the men served. While some, like Lilly’s brother, died in The Great War, many others came back with emotional scars that affect their personal choices and the town at large.  You can find Jess Montgomery on instagram at @jessmontgomeryauthor or on her author website, www.jessmontgomeryauthor.com .
