Description

This is a special evening with sisters Carol and Linda Henning, daughters of Ruth and Paul Henning, who created the Beverly Hillbillies.

Ruth and Paul grew up in the Kansas City area and the evening celebrates a memoir written by Ruth about her husband who was a comedic genius and television pioneer.

Carol is a writer and Linda an actress who starred in her father's show Petticoat Junction. The sisters will be interviewed by Karla Deel, a local historian and writer involved with SqueezeBoxCity

The evening includes dinner, a conversation with two sisters and a signed copy of The First Beverly Hillbilly: The Untold Story of the Creator of Rural TV Comedy.

The memoir was published in 2017 by Jackson County Historical Society and the Mid-Continent Public Library's Woodneath Press imprint.

It should be a fun evening.
