Poet Norb Krapf to read from his new book at Dubois County Museum

On Saturday, July 20, 2024, Jasper native and Indiana poet Norbert Krapf will visit to read from his new book called “Ida Hagan of the Pinkston Freedom Settlement” at 1:30 p.m. at the Dubois County Museum at 2704 N. Newton Street in Jasper.

He is excited to share his poems on the life of this remarkable woman.

Miss Hagan grew up in the Pinkston Freedom Settlement, which was located in the present Huntingburg Conservation Club area in Dubois County. Miss Hagan achieved much in her growing-up years in Ferdinand, and Krapf is excited to share his 14-year research into her life. Krapf will have copies of his book on hand and will be available to sign his book. The Museum’s Gift Shop also has several more books written by Mr. Krapf on hand for purchase.

Visitors are invited to also visit the exhibit on Ida Hagan and the Pinkston Freedom Settlement on display at the museum.
