Join us for the second event of this year’s PCAL Cultural Enhancement Series on Thursday, October 12th at 7 PM in the Jody Richards Hall Auditorium as we host author, law professor, and Kentucky State Senator, Cassie Chambers! Chambers will discuss her book, Hill Women: Finding Family and a Way Forward in the Appalachian Mountains. A book signing will immediately follow the talk. A QR attendance code will also be available.

After rising from poverty to earn two Ivy League degrees and then returning to Kentucky to work for Kentucky Legal Aid and as a local legislator, Chambers pays tribute to the strong “hill women” who raised and inspired her, and whose values have the potential to rejuvenate a struggling region. Admission is free, no tickets are necessary, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.


At all PCAL Cultural Enhancement Series events, we will be collecting donations for the International Center of Kentucky, our Adopt a Nonprofit partner. Donations are not required, but strongly encouraged. Click here for the donation list.
