The opening chapter of “Images of Berkeley Springs” is called Overlooks. Betty Lou and I had a great time marking the year of the photos by picking out which buildings were still there and which were gone. We plan to offer that same fun to anyone who wants to partake.
On Wednesday, August 31 at 7pm and Saturday, September 3 at 11am and 2pm, we’re staging a free “overlook” event at the Ice House. We’ll be projecting more than a dozen photographs to giant size on the walls of the Paradox Room, point out the various buildings and invite people to explore the historic streets of the town in detail. We are numbering the first 100 and will offer them for pre-publication sale at these events.
“Images of Berkeley Springs” is due out September 19. We will be set up to sell them on the street in front of the Star Theatre on Saturday and Sunday, September 24 and 25 plus we’ll be set up at the Apple Butter Festival. There will be plenty of chances to buy copies of this historic book in time for Christmas.
The price is $21.99 plus tax.
