The Cushing Library will sponsor a book sale Sunday, Dec. 5 from 2 to 5 p.m. featuring books written by local Cushing authors — some unknown, others already famous. Many of the writers will be on hand to sign their works, an added benefit for buyers searching for personalized holiday gifts.

Recent books from the Cushing Library also will be available to purchase.

Joan Thibault, Library Board President, said the library is pleased to offer this sale as a service to our community.

“Until recently, Cushing authors have been a somewhat forgotten group of local artists. This display and sale will go far to improve their visibility,” she said.

Authors whose books will be available include Elizabeth Ogilvie, Jeannette Chapman, Hugh Aaron, Luthera Dawson, Joe Yamello, Glennis James, Judy Knowlton, Gwen Southgate, Tom Johnson, Virginia Olson and many others. The library is located in the community building on Cross Road.
