SRAC's Deb Twigg will join other authors at Strawberry Festival Book Signing
The Tioga County Historical Society Museum, at 110 Front Street Owego NY, has announced that it will play host to the authors of local history books on the afternoon of Owego’s Strawberry Festival, June 18th, 2011, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. The general public is invited to come in, visit with the authors, get books signed, ask questions, share your memories, old photos and stories, and see the exhibits of local treasures currently on display at the museum.
Practically every author who has produced a book related to Tioga County history in the most recent few years will be present:
Carol Henry, who recently finished her book on the Town of Candor, for their bicentennial will have copies available. Carol has written several books on Candor’s history, and has plans for more.
Berkshire historians Ray Hunt, and Maurice Stoughton will have copies of their first book on Northern Tioga history and will be accepting advance orders for their next book, which will be published this summer.
Authors of the History of Tioga County Schools, Joan Hunt, Linda Williams, and Ray Hunt will be on hand, with copies of their recent book, and looking for more information and different pictures for a second volume on local schools.
R.W. White, who has written several historical novels, as well as a biography of Tioga County’s first historian, early lawyer Charles P. Avery, will be on hand to greet visitors and share stories.
Deb Twigg, Director of The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center in Waverly, will be bringing copies of her book on Spanish Hill and Carantouan. This will be the first time Ms. Twigg will be signing her books in Owego.
Emma Sedore, Tioga County and Town of Owego Historian will discuss local history and sign copies of her recent book on the Town of Owego, or her earlier book on Hiawatha Island.
This will be the largest gathering of local authors in one place and the best opportunity to collect autographs ever held at the museum.
