Madison County Historian Mary E. Messere, also known as Back Street Mary, will be doing a presentation at the Writer's Jubilee at the Edward R. Andrews Elementary School in Morrisville Saturday April 25. The presentation, which will highlight the history of the upcoming historic 170th Madison County Fair, of which Messere is co-director, will also feature the debut of her new book titled simply "Eaton."
The book is part of the Arcadia Press series, "Images of America," and features not only the history of the town of Eaton, but also more than 120 pictures.
The book is due to be officially released Monday April 27, and all proceeds from the book will benefit the Old Town of Eaton Museum, for which Messere is curator.
The book will be available at book stores and also on line at madisoncountyhistorian.org.
