The Madison County Historical Society’s June Speaker Series event will take place June 9 at 2 p.m. at the Main Street Community Center, 1003 N. Main Street in Edwardsville, Illinois. The speaker will be local historian Cindy Reinhardt who will introduce listeners to Madison County's "Famous but Forgotten." The event is free and open to the public.

Reinhardt has been researching and writing about Madison County history for more than thirty years. During that time, she has uncovered dozens of former Madison County residents who were at one time known across the country and beyond but are no longer remembered. The list of those forgotten includes inventors, politicians, authors, entertainers, and more.

Reinhardt's publications on Madison County history include two books, “150 Years of Hometown News,” a book that celebrated the sesquicentennial of the Edwardsville Intelligencer, and “Leclaire,” a pictorial history of the Leclaire National Historic District from Arcadia Publishing. She has written hundreds of articles highlighting Madison County history for local, regional and state publications. In addition, she is the author and editor of the award-winning MCHS News, published by the Madison County Historical Society.
