Title: New Book Celebrates the History of the Nebraska State Fair
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing
Nebraska State Fair, a new pictorial history book detailing the history of the Nebraska State Fair through vintage photographs, will be published June 27.
A portion of the proceeds from the book sales will go toward the 1868 Nebraska State Fair Foundation, whose mission is to raise funds for the overall improvement of the Nebraska State Fair.
The book, written by local historian and author Mary L. Maas, includes more than 200 vintage images and captions to give readers who have experienced the fair a nostalgic walk down memory lane.
"I wanted the photographs to give a bird's eye view of how the fair tasted, smelled, and the wonders that filled everyone's eyes and ears as they walked through the animal barns, sat in the grandstand seats, wandered the exhibition halls, and sauntered along the rows of the vendors," says Maas.
Nebraska State Fair will be available June 27, 2011 at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers, and through Arcadia Publishing at (888) 313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
It will be available for purchase at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island, Nebraska August 26-September 5.
