Images of America - Itawamba County

I am thrilled to announce the publication date for Images of America:  Itawamba County.  This photographic history book, containing over 200 vintage images, will be available for purchase on January 7, 2013.  The Images of America series of books by Arcadia Publishing chronicles the history of counties and towns across the country using vintage photographs that capture by-g0ne times, people and events that help define a community.

The book, which will cost $21.99 plus a shipping and handling fee if mailed, will be available for sale at the Itawamba County Historical Society, or directly from me, or a local retailer, and also online from Arcadia Publishing.  I recently spoke to the Itawamba County Historical Society and was pleasantly surprised to learn from someone at the meeting that the book is already listed on the company's websiteHow exciting!

The book was a pure labor of love, and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet both old and new "cousins" and learn more about our county.   Hopefully, the book will be both entertaining and informative.  Pre-sales will start soon, and gift cards will be available to give as Christmas gifts.  

E-mail me at ItawambaConnections@gmail.com if you are interested.
