Our local historian has a book out

So Barbara Rimkunas has published a book of her columns. There's a book signing coming up. Here's the details:

Get a jump on the holiday season while supporting the Exeter Historical Society by shopping at Barnes & Noble in Newington, New Hampshire. Barbara Rimkunas will be on hand at 1 p.m. signing copies of her new book, Exeter: Historically Speaking, a collection of Rimkunas’s Historically Speaking newspaper column. In an effort to raise funds to aid them in educating the community about the significance of Exeter’s past, the Exeter Historical Society is working together with Barnes & Noble Booksellers by hosting a bookfair—and book signing—at the Newington Barnes & Noble store.

On October 12 from 12 – 5 p.m., Barnes & Noble will contribute a percentage of every sale made with a special bookfair voucher to the Exeter Historical Society. Vouchers will be available online at the historical society’s website——and in hard copy at the Exeter Historical Society.

The Barnes & Noble bookfair will help the Exeter Historical Society and the greater community of Exeter in a couple of ways. First, a percentage of bookfair sales will underwrite the fulfillment of their mission. Second, the libraries of Main Street School and Lincoln Street School have created wish lists for titles to enhance their library collections. Bookfair supporters may choose books from an in-store wish list display to purchase for the schools’ libraries. Purchases from the wish-lists will help both the schools’ libraries and the historical society.
