— A program of great local interest is coming to the Northern Wayne Community Library.
Mimi Steffen, author of The Rural Schools of Wayne County and the recently published The Rural Schools of Preston Township, will be presenting a program/book signing at the Library in Lakewood on two different dates during the summer.
The evening program will be held Wednesday, July 24 at 6:30 p.m., while the daytime, weekend program is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 24 at 2 p.m. Linda Dix Lee, her collaborator extraordinary, will be on hand to assist.
Mimi will be speaking about her search for the schools, teachers and students who were once a part of the educational system in Preston Township. She will give just a glimpse into the beautiful photographs and interesting individuals she met.
What school did your ancestors attend? What do you know about the school? Are any of your family names in the book? Both books will be available for purchase for the benefit of the Northern Wayne Community Library and the Wayne County Historical Society.
