Hello all! I have some exciting news: I have two upcoming author events scheduled for July! It’s going to be a busy month!
Stop by the annual Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival on Friday, July 5, when I’ll be selling and signing copies of my book, Ligonier Valley Vignettes: Tales from the Laurel Highlands from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The festival will be held at Twin Lakes Park near Greensburg, PA and features a variety of performing arts, handmade crafts, cultural heritage activities and ethnic food. Later on that day, I will be helping out at the Westmoreland Heritage booth from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., providing information on all of the wonderful historical and cultural sites throughout Westmoreland County. Additional festival details, directions to Twin Lakes and information about recommended shuttle transportation can be found on their website. Also, Pittsburgh Dad is going to be there that day from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. – I hope he stops over!
If you can’t make it to the festival, I will also signing my book at the Westmoreland County Historical Society Pollins Library during an Ice Cream Social on Thursday, July 18 from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. The WCHS will also have copies of my book for sale. Please call 724-532-1935 x210 for more information. Please come out and support this wonderful organization that promotes the education and preservation of Westmoreland County history through its enormous research library, archival and archaeological collections, the historic site at Hanna’s Town and various educational programs and materials, among the Society’s many other endeavors. The WCHS is where my local history research started in 2004 with my article on Idlewild Park, so we go way back. Plus, YAY for ice cream!
I hope to see you all soon! Thank you to both the Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival and the WCHS for their support! Keep updated on the places Ligonier Valley Vignettes will be this summer and fall by checking out my Author Events page!
