LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Books about bourbon are becoming almost as common as bourbon brands themselves.
Seven prominent bourbon authors will be featured at evening receptions next month in Louisville.
The receptions will coincide with a five-day event called the Kentucky Bourbon Affair, which gives bourbon fans an up-close look at the industry.
The Kentucky Distillers' Association says the authors will talk about their books, sign autographs and discuss bourbon.
The signings will be held May 15-16 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. EDT at the Marriott Louisville East. Books will be available on-site for purchase.
The featured authors will include Tim Laird, Bernie Lubbers, Fred Minnick, Susan Reigler, Clay Risen, Mike Veach and Molly Wellman.
The Kentucky Bourbon Affair will offer behind-the-scenes tours and events at bourbon distilleries in the Bluegrass state.
