Cayce Day

The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County, Visit Hopkinsville, and Milkweed Health & Harmony Emporium will celebrate the work of psychic Edgar Cayce on Saturday, March 26, 2022. Join us downtown for a day full of FREE activities that center around Edgar Cayce’s roots in Christian County and the major impact he continues to make throughout the world.
Special guests Sidney and Nancy Kirkpatrick, Cayce biographers, and other celebrity Cayce scholars will join us virtually to share an in-depth video tour of Christian County sites connected to the Cayce story that had a profound effect on his work. The video will play in the Pennyroyal Area Museum all day. Stop in for a little or a long while to learn more from these experts.
There are so many opportunities to enjoy throughout the day! Tour the Pennyroyal Area Museum and our permanent exhibit dedicated to Edgar Cayce, grab a Cayce-inspired snack, and pick up books and health products in The Vault by Planters Bank shop in our lobby. Learn about healing stones and their effects at the Chakra Rock Bar sponsored by Visit Hopkinsville. Get a fairy garden kit (while supplies last) to create your very own fairy retreat at your home. Take the Edgar Cayce Cell Phone Tour to travel to local sites and learn more about his life in Hopkinsville. The tour concludes at his gravesite in Riverside Cemetery.

Jane Olmsted, A Poetic Romp Through Women’s History

A Poetic Romp Through Women’s History

What American Women Have to Say Through Poetry

Join us as writer and Western Kentucky University professor Jane Olmsted reads and discusses the poetry of American women, while also sprinkling in readings of her own poetry. Olmsted’s poems and stories have appeared in numerous journals. Her chapbook Tree Forms was published in 2011 by Finishing Line Press. Her essay “The Weight of a Human Heart” won Memoir Journal’s prize for the guns issue in the fall 2013. Her collection of poems, Seeking the Other Side, was published in 2015 by Fleur de Lis Press.

From “Ghazal by Thread” by Jane Olmsted:

It seems the life I’ve called my own is but an echo of
someone else, someone who can only be heard—or found
—if she lets go of that life

sloughing off the skin and baring the rawness, pulling
hand over hand and gathering the lines of this deep-
shadowed life.
