Lunsford to sign books Nov. 23 at Baesler’s


News Release

TERRE HAUTE — Writer Mike Lunsford will be signing copies of his newest book, “A Windy Hill Almanac,” from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at Baesler’s Market, 2900 Poplar St. This is Lunsford’s fourth book. He also writes “The Off Season,” a human interest column, for the Terre Haute Tribune-Star.

“I want to thank Bob Baesler for allowing me the opportunity to sign books at his store again,” Lunsford said. “Bob promotes all things local, and I appreciate him giving me a place to meet people who are interested in my books and what I do.”

Author and editor Jim McGarrah, the winner of the Eric Hoffer Award for Non-Fiction, says of Lunsford’s writing, “There is something greater than the sum of its parts in Lunsford’s elegant and natural prose that inspires the reader to feel the world, as well as think about it.”

Award-winning Tribune-Star feature writer Mark Bennett says that Lunsford uses “beech trees, streams and cornstalks” as “vehicles to tell stories, rekindle memories, and re-awaken our senses.”

Lunsford lives with his wife, Joanie, in rural Parke County and is at work on his fifth book, “Saving Fort Apache.”
