A BEHEADING, A BOBOLINK AND BATHTUB GIN – NEW BOOK CONNECTS STRANGE ‘SECRETS’ TO CINCINNATI

ST. LOUIS, MO—Reedy Press is pleased to announce the release of our latest local interest book, Secret Cincinnati: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure, by Kathryn Witt.

Is it safe to photograph bobolinks at a once-contaminated nuclear weapons plant? Is it possible to channel a medium from whatever realm she inhabits in the afterlife? Is that really a bathtub hanging from the ceiling?
Did you know you can watch an unscripted star show with an audience of only eighteen? Find pieces of an exquisite
old castle-like building all over the city? Hear a free concert outdoors in the dead of winter? Conduct your own paranormal investigation at a honky-tonk? See the world’s largest steam engines? Browse and buy animal skulls?
Told with wonder, humor, and a big dose of sentimentality, here is a travel guide that lauds those little (and little-known) treasures all over town. From a tower missing its church and a maze you can meditate your way through to a book relating to a real-life beheading and a memorial to the last passenger pigeon, Secret Cincinnati is an exuberant shout-out to all that makes Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky the sometimes weird and always wonderful place it is.

Secret Cincinnati: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure is available at reedypress.com and wherever books are sold.

Please contact Don Korte at dkorte@reedypress.com to arrange an interview or appearance for Kathryn.
