BLANCHESTER — Author Robyn Stone-Kraft will discuss and sign copies of her recently published book, “Blanchester”, at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20 at the Blanchester Public Library.

“Blanchester” is the latest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s series “Images of America.” Stone-Kraft is the granddaughter of co-author and long-time Blanchester resident Richard Read. The Cincinnati resident spent a lot of time visiting her grandparents while growing up.

The book documents in photos — most culled from the collection of the Blanchester Area Historical Society — the history of the village from its beginnings in 1832 to the present.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase for $21.99.

Please contact the library at (937) 783-3585 if you have any questions.
