Local Author Returns with Book Signing!
(8/30/2017, Chris Brown)
Please come the library September 6th, 4:00pm to 7:00pm to welcome Marsha Williamson Mohr. She has been photographing for close to 30 years. She has three published books on Indiana, two of which won the prestigious IPPY Awards. One, Indiana Barns sat on Governor Pence’s office coffee table. Marsha has had many publications in national magazines, post card companies and calendars. Living in West Lafayette since the age of nine months she has enjoyed the Wabash River. It made sense for her to pursue a project on the Wabash and its valley.
Taking in all 503 miles to collect the library of images, this book will be highlighting the whole river from its beginning in Fort Recovery Ohio, to its terminus at the Ohio River. She will compose narrative covering the outstanding landscapes, history and cultures.
The importance of the Wabash to Indiana can’t be minimized. The rich history developed this state. Indiana’s state river is the Wabash, and the state song is “Oh the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away.” The unspoiled hollows and waterfalls are bountiful. For these reasons, and for our future generations, this book will be a treasure that can’t be neglected. Marsha will have books on hand to sell and autograph that evening.
