East Side Book’s first booksigning celebrating the new Images of America – Bishop book by Pam and Brendan Vaughan was a wonderful success. The Laws Museum provided most of the photos for book, and helped sponsor the booksigning event with advertising, food and more copies of this quickly selling book. A portion of the book sales from our store last week will go back to benefit the museum. The authors signed stacks of copies, heard even more stories from the valley’s history, and visited with dozens of friends. It was especially fun to hear the many excited folks who knew their pictures were inside – although there are at least three people claiming ownership of the car parked on Main Street on the cover! Attendees enjoyed an awesome and eclectic mix of music from guitarists Greg Smith and Jeremy Freeman. If you get a chance to hear them play, by all means go listen! I’d like them here every Friday night….
We sold out our stock of Bishop books as of Saturday, but more are on their way. The Laws Museum still has some on the shelf, as well as an excellent selection of local history and of course railroad books. Check out the new Stamp mill and Textile Building while you are there!
Thanks to everyone that helped out and attended this booksigning. Looking forward to the next one!
