PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

On Tuesday, February 2, a panel discussion event will be held at West Kentucky Community and Technical College, centered around the novel Saints at the River by Ron Rash.

The panel, entitled "Real-life Reflections of the River", will begin at 6:30 p.m. on February 2 in the Matheson Library of WKCTC, and is part of the college's One Book Read of 2015-16.
