A book tracking the history and growth of Godfrey through the decades is hitting local book stores.  An official kick-off celebration will be held Saturday afternoon at Piasa Harbor along the Great River Road, and will be hosted by the Great Rivers Land Trust and book author Jill Moon.  

The books are in stores around town, and Moon says you can also buy a book at the book signing tomorrow from noon to 4pm.

Moon comments

Key book contributor Erwin A. Thompson, will join Moon as a special guest, and will have his own recently published literary works on hand.  Thompson turned 98 years old earlier this month.  Ringhausen Orchards will provide apple cider and apples for guests at the signing, as well as other light appetizers and snacks.
