Elizabeth Mayhew

From KentUCKy to KenLUCKY -  How Kentucky Roots Helped Propel Elizabeth Mayhew’s Success

Join Kentucky to the World as style expert and Louisville native Elizabeth Mayhew, a regular on NBC's Today Show, a popular columnist for The Washington Post and currently the Brand Editor for Reese Witherspoon’s Southern-inspired brand, Draper James, shares how being Kentucky born and raised has helped propel her success in some unexpected and amazing directions. She will have a conversation with Shannon Cogan, multiple Emmy award winner and anchor for WAVE 3 News.

Elizabeth has taken her career from growing up in Louisville to the national spotlight. She has been a driving force at a number of publications including House Beautiful, Southern Living, Woman's Day, and REAL SIMPLE. She also is the author of FLIP! for Decorating (Ballantine). As Katie Couric noted, “Learning decorating tips from Elizabeth Mayhew is like spending time with a good friend who has your best interests at heart.” 

Join us for a pre-show reception beginning at 5:30 PM.
