Project Then and Now ended with a book publication

YAC Cyclones Sharun P. and Malavika R. helped Mrs. Marolyn Stout, a resident of Brookdale, Independent Living, make her dream a reality, publish her memories of "50 Years Behind a Fitting Room Door" before her 90th Birthday. 

Cyclones typed Mrs. Stout manuscript in PressBooks, a Metropolitan Library Systems online resource that empowers self-publishing.  Miss Elisabeth Wright, Village Teen Librarian, trained the Cyclones on the program and connected Mrs. Stout to the Metropolitan Library Systems graphic designer, Mr. Rick George, who did the art for the book cover.

The Village Library and Brookdale had a book signing and birthday party for Marolyn on Sunday, October 22nd from 1:30-3:30 pm.  Marolyn signed 100 books and 70 people attended her birthday celebration.
