The New Books are Launched

On Sunday, Joe Sonderman and I presented our first program for our new book, Route 66 in Illinois, in Edwardsville, Illinois. Madison County Historical Society graciously hosted our first program and book signing at their Archival Library. We had a good crowd who stayed engaged with us through our slightly-long presentation - there are just so many stories we want to share!
Special thanks to Mary Westerhold, Research Manager, Cindy Reinhardt for great publicity and handling cashier duties while we signed books, and Steve Rensberry for snapping some photos.

 Joe's beautiful new hardcover, full-color book, Postcards from Route 66:  The Ultimate Collection from America's Main Street," was also available and on display.


Today, Monday, June 9th, is the official release day for Route 66 in Illinois so it is now available for shipment from Amazon. Don't give up on your local book stores as well. In speaking with our Arcadia Publishing sales rep, I learned that he will be working book stores from Chicago to Bloomington in the next couple days, so stores in the northern part of the state should be stocked any day. As for our book stores in central Illinois down through my neck of the woods in the Metro East, they should hopefully be in stock by the end of the week.
