Used book sale marks an annual York, Pa., blast
I’ve previously posted on yorktownsquare.com about how the York County Heritage Trust’s Book Blast solved a puzzle for me.
I was trying to figure out a way to frame the massive amount of World War II material available into a story line for a local book on the topic. I ran across a box of war-era “Shop News,” the company newsletter for York Corporation, now Johnson Controls.
Yorkco’s people would become my framing device… .
Anyway, the result was the book “In the thick of the fight”, and I’ve been grateful to Lila Fourhman-Shaull and her annual used book sale ever since.
The Book Blast is now under way, and here are the particulars:
Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Agricultural & Industrial Museum, 217 W. Princess St., York.
Books are $2 for hardbacks and $1 for paperbacks, with collectibles priced separately. On Friday, all books except collectibles are half price. On Saturday, books are a buck-a-bag and the special collectible section is half price.
