Book Signing at Anderson’s in the City

News Release:  Book Signing at Anderson’s in the City

Local author Margy Vogt will sign copies of her books, Massillon:  Reflections of a Community and Fourth Street:  A Century of History and Design, at Anderson’s in the City on Saturday, April 18, from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.  

Reflections, a pictorial narrative of the community, includes 700 local history images from more than 100 public and private collections, includig the Massillon Museum, in a 240-page hardbound volume.  Photographs and identifications are arranged on horizontal 12-inch by 9-inch pages in a loose chronology representing Massillon from the early 1800s to 2008. (2008, $39.90)

Fourth Street, a 48-page softbound book, highlights—through photographs and details—the architecture and some of the former residents of Massillon’s finest old neighborhood. (1998, $14.00)

"Neither of these books is new, but some people who purchased or received the books for Christmas have been asking to have them signed," Vogt said.  "When Claudia Anderson suggested hosting the event, I was pleased to do so in support of Anderson's and the Museum and to accommodate the people who want to have their books inscribed."

Additionally, three copies of Towpath to Towpath, Vogt's comprehensive story of Massillon's past (2002, $30) will be available at the book signing.  The book, a hardbound history, has been out of print since 2009.  "These are copies I've been holding back for an occasion like this," Vogt said.

Anderson’s in the City, located in the Massillon Museum lobby, 121 Lincoln Way East, in downtown Massillon, will be open for lunch (sandwiches, soups, and salads), coffee, and sweet treats during the book signing. For information about Anderson's, call 330-833-7255.

Guests are invited to bring copies they already own or they can purchase Reflections and Fourth Street in the Museum shop, OHregionalities.  For information about the Massillon Museum, call 330-833-4061.
