Spotlight Series: “Cincinnati: An Illustrated Timeline” with Jeff Suess

Thursday, August 19, 2021
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In 800 BC, the Adena Culture inhabited southwest Ohio, leaving behind burial mounds such as Serpent Mound in Adams County. In 2019, FC Cincinnati brought Major League Soccer to our region. Jeff Suess explores those moments along with everything that happened in between in his book, “Cincinnati: An Illustrated Timeline.” Join us as he guides us through the history, legends, and landmarks of the Queen City.​

Jeff Suess is the author of Lost Cincinnati, Hidden History of Cincinnati, and Cincinnati Then and Now. He is the librarian of the Cincinnati Enquirer, where he keeps the newspaper archive and writes about Cincinnati history. He regularly does presentations on local history and leads discussions on graphic novels at the Mercantile Library. Jeff also writes fiction and has had stories published by Pocket Books, Post Mortem Press, and DC Comics.

Jeff grew up in Modesto, California, and graduated from San Francisco State University. He lives in White Oak on Cincinnati’s West Side with his wife, Kristin, and their daughter, Dashiell.
