Cortland woman writes 3 books


Judy Lennington of Cortland, a retired factory worker of 38 years and graduate of Beaver Local High School, has written three books.

They are “Saving Diana,” about a young woman coming of age in Pennslvania before, during and after the Civil War; “Daniel’s Day,” about a lawyer who works at a firm whose biggest client is the mobster who had his father murdered; and “Snow,” about a thoroughbred-horse breeder in Kentucky.

Lennington will have a reading and signing at 6 p.m. Friday at Leetonia Library.

Library hosts book signing


Wayne A. Cole will be signing his new book “Ghost Rails IX State Line Legends,” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at New Castle Library, 207 E. North St.

The 232 page hardback book details the history of the P&LE Gateway Yard in Struthers, the Lowellville Sharon Steel plant and the Bessemer and Hillsville limestone industry.

The keynote history of this volume also covers the legendary history of the former New Castle American Cyanamid dynamite plant and the early Lowellville Burton black powder mill.

Other copies of his books also will be available.

World Book Night


Best-sellers James Patterson and Ann Patchett will help lead a nationwide effort to spread the good words of books.

Patterson and Patchett are the honorary chairs of the U.S. chapter of World Book Night, an international project for which hundreds of thousands of free books are handed out by volunteers.

U.S. organizers announced recently that copies of 30 works would be distributed April 23, including Tina Fey’s “Bossypants,” Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451” and Michael Lewis’ “Moneyball.”

World Book Night was founded in Britain in 2010.

Books are chosen by a panel of booksellers and librarians.
