Edgar Light imageWho was this mysterious man? And what can we learn from him?

We have all heard of Edgar Cayce, but many of us do not know much about the phenomenal life that he led. The most well-documented psychic of the 20th century, the father of holistic medicine, a medical clairvoyant, the sleeping prophet: these terms have all been used to describe this Christian County native.

William T. Turner offers his expertise and charm in his presentation on “Edgar Cayce’s Hometown” on Saturday, July 23 from 10:30am to 12:30pm at the Pennyroyal Area Museum. The program features historic photographs of the area and of Cayce’s family that have been collected and compiled over decades. Come to the presentation to learn about Cayce’s local heritage and how growing up here contributed to his astonishing gifts.

Book Signing: In 2010, Turner partnered with Chris Gilkey to develop a book that explores the life of Edgar Cayce in Hopkinsville through photographs. Titled Edgar Cayce’s Hometown, the book provides historical context for the community that helped to define the young man with an extraordinary gift. Grab a copy from the Museum Shop and have both authors sign it at the conclusion of the program!
