2/21/18   Joe Flickinger releases book 

 JOE FLICKINGER  publishes second book


CHS Member JOE FLICKINGER is a teacher at Northwest High School in Colerain Township.  He currently teaches AP European History and World History to grades 9-12.


Published in 2010, his first book focused on Green Township. "A Bicentennial History of

Green Township; Uncovering a Jewel in the Crown of the Queen City".


For Joe’s second book published in 2018, he worked extensively with CHS President Mary Burdett to find many of the pictures featured in his book. The new book is

 "A History of Colerain Township: From Frontier Wilderness to Suburban Sprawl".

Both books are available from Heritage Books, Amazon, or CHS Museum.


On July 6, 2018 Joe was on live at WMKV-FM (89.3) for their program called the "Book Show", hosted by Mike Martini and Kevin Grace.  They discussed local histories, the problems and issues these books have, and the work that the local historical societies do that makes these books possible. 

Here is a link to the digital recording they did of the show (FYI, it is 46 minutes long):
