When someone says Butchertown and the first thing you think of is “it smells,” then you definitely need to read Edna Kubala’s new book “Louisville’s Butchertown,” a work inspired by this unique corner of Louisville.

“During the 1960s, Butchertown was a blighted neighborhood with a small group of residents fighting to keep houses from being demolished.” Kubala says. “It’s a neighborhood that has an extremely diverse socioeconomic group of people in it. Now, as a result of those dedicated people, it’s a vibrant neighborhood, is on the National Register of Historic Places, and has a book about it.”

You can buy “Louisville’s Butchertown” at Kaviar Gallery, plus get the book signed during the F.A.T. Friday “Derby Hop.” —Jo Anne Triplett
