On Saturday, June 29, local author, Jerry Eident, will have a book signing at the Effingham County Museum located in the historic Effingham County Courthouse. Eident has recently published another book which presents local history. Entitled "Grandpa Gibson¹s Letter & Early Historical Notes of Mason, Illinois," the work focuses on life in the early 1900¹s, including the nature of work, hunting, churches, schools, and other day-to-day life experiences of residents of the county. There are word pictures of early settlers and the development of the town of Mason, along with a large variety of other topics which will fascinate anyone interested in Effingham County¹s rich heritage. The hours for the signing will correspond with the museum¹s hours, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

The Museum Association also will have raffle tickets available for purchase for both a quilt and a special edition engraved octagon barrel, 22 long Henry rifle.
