Book featuring county's history now available

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Remember "Faces and Places of Clay County Indiana?"

The hardback book was published by The Brazil Times in 1998 in cooperation with D-Books Publishing. The book was put together under then Times' Publisher Bill Harper.

The book depicts photographs -- submitted by members of the community -- that represent Clay County's past.

Another book, "Reflections of Clay County," was also published in the early 1990s. It was created under the guidance of then Times' Publisher Joe Redenbarger.

Recently, a reader came into contact with a copy of the original book, spurring Times' General Manager Lynne Llewellyn to contact D-Books Publishing about the prospects of having the book re-published.

It was discovered that the publishing company still had a box of "Faces and Places of Clay County Indiana" in its archives.

The Times recently purchased the remaining copies of the second edition of Clay County history and the books are currently on sale.

The book features 95 pages of historical pictures, including one of the Clay County Courthouse in Bowling Green dating back to the 1870s.

The book costs $25 and is available on a first-come-first-serve basis. No reservations will be allowed. There are a total of 25 books available for purchase.

Currently, there are no copies available of "Reflections of Clay County," but Llewellyn said the book might be reprinted in the future.

In addition, Llewellyn added a third edition of Clay County's past in pictures could also be published at a later date.

This is such a great idea! I have to have one! :)
