Local Ventriloquist Museum Benefits From New Book


Tucked in the Northern Kentucky city of Fort Mitchell is a local oddity that has a large cult following.

The Vent Haven Museum is just that, a haven for fans of the art of ventriloquism.

Numerous "dummies" line the rooms of the hidden local landmark. Ventriloquists of varying skills will convene in Covington this month as part of the museum's annual convention.

Also in attendance will be filmmakers and authors Bryan W. Simon and Marjorie Engesser. Their new book, I'm No Dummy Everyday: 365 Days of Ventriloquial Oddities, Curiosities, and Fun Facts, is now available with some of the proceeds benefitting Vent Haven.

Simon and Engesser joined Cincinnati Edition to talk about Vent Haven, the conVENTion and the book.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
