Join local historical author Lela Hartsaw, author of The Adventures of Abigail Rose - Ida Patten's Antebellum Doll Saturday, November 12th for a book signing event!
During the book signings, the author will dress in Civil War-era attire while she reads passages from The Adventures of Abigail Rose. Children’s toys from that era will be on display, and there will be crafting projects for children and a raffle. Hartsaw will discuss the inspiration for her novel and autograph copies of the book, which will be available for sale.
Researched and written by Hartsaw as historical fiction, the book entertains readers while candidly detailing just a brief moment in nineteenth century Florida. This book, intended for “children” ages 8-108, is a delightful read for the whole family. Proceeds from sales of this book will go toward upkeep and restoration of the historic Patten House (built in 1895), on the Gamble Mansion property in Ellenton, Florida.
