Special to 1808Delaware

The Delaware County Historical Society (DCHS) has announced an author presentation and book signing event in support of The Underground Railroad in Ohio by author Kathy Schulz.

The free event will take place on Sunday, January 22, at 2:00 PM at The Barn at Stratford, located at 2690 Stratford Road, Delaware. Tours of the Meeker Homestead Museum are available following the book signing.

“We’re delighted to welcome Ms. Schulz to share her research,” said Donna Meyer, DCHS Executive Director. “Her personal knowledge, having lived near two major Underground Railroad junctions, should make for fascinating discussion and a unique educational experience for the entire community.”

The Underground Railroad in Ohio explores a dark time in American history and the role the state of Ohio played as host to nearly half of fugitive slave traffic during the antebellum era.

The book is available on Amazon and the author will have copies available at the presentation.

Kathy Schulz is a retired college librarian. She has deep roots in Ohio and degrees from three Ohio universities. Kathy and her husband currently live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she stays busy with friends, hobbies and grandchildren.
