Area author to be guest for historical society

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Mike Lunsford
Local author Mike Lunsford will speak and sign copies of his books at the Clay County Historical Society meeting in March.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m., Monday, March 1, at the historical society museum, 100 E. National Ave., Brazil.

Lunsford, 53, is a teacher and writer from rural southern Parke County. His second book, "Sidelines: The Best of the Basketball Stories..." was released in November.

His human-interest column, "The Off Season," is regularly published in the Tribune-Star.

"Mike's stories of the glory days of Indiana basketball are a rich introduction to the hardwood state and its wonderful characters," said author Randy Roberts. "Lunsford reminds me why I love Indiana."

Books will be available for sale and signing at the meeting.

More information on Lunsford may be obtained at www.mikelunsford.com.

In addition, the historical society museum will be reopening March 15 from its winter closing.

Normal hours are 1-4 p.m., Monday-Friday.

School groups wishing to arrange a tour of the museum are encouraged to call Larry Branum at the museum at 446-4036 to schedule.
