Susie Thurman book signing and reception

The Friends of the Library is hosting a book signing and reception for Susan Sommers Thurman and her latest book, Henderson. This book is part of the Postcard History Series of books from Arcadia Publishing. These vintage picture postcards take readers on a trip through the history of Henderson. Featured are the city’s many remarkable parks, businesses, hotels, schools, and homes—some lost to time and some transported into the 21st century. The images and stories in this book will entertain and educate architecture buffs, rail fans, river enthusiasts, historians, and visitors and residents, past and present.

Lifelong Hendersonian Susan Sommers Thurman began collecting local postcards more than 20 years ago. A teacher and writer, her first published work was Currents—Henderson’s River Book, which she coauthored with Gail King. Thurman is the author of over 50 articles dealing with English education, along with a number of study guides, textbooks, and other books. Currently she is an instructor at Henderson Community College.

The event will take place on Thursday, May 29, 2008, at 7:00 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church in Henderson. Books will be on sale for $20. The Friends will be providing light refreshments and all are invited to attend. For more information, please contact the Library at 826-3712.
