You are invited to the publication party for Rosemary Enright and Sue Maden’s new book Historic Tales of Jamestown, May 7 from 5 to 7 pm at the Jamestown Art Center. All profits from the book go to the society.

The book is a collection of essays about the town. Some appeared in the Jamestown Press as part of the Jamestown Historical Society’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2012 and 2013. Others are brand new or are adaptations of essays by Maden in the 1990s and early 2000s.

The cover price of Historic Tales of Jamestown is $21.99 ($23.53 with tax). Members buying the book directly from the society, either at the publication party or later, pay $20. Non-members pay $23. Buying directly from the society generates more revenue for the society than buying from other sources. So come to the party and get an autographed copy, personalized by the authors.
