A new pictorial history of Grinnell called “Images of America: Grinnell” will be the subject of Grinnell Regional Medical Center’s Senior Education Program on Monday, Oct. 5.
The authors, Lynn Cavanagh and Mary Schuchmann, will discuss what they learned about Grinnell in putting together the book, which was published in July by Arcadia Publishing Company.
The book contains 209 vintage photographs, starting with the founding of the town and continuing through the 1990s. The photos came from Drake Community Library, Grinnell College Archives, and the Grinnell Historical Museum, as well as through the generosity of local individuals and families.
The program will focus on some of Cavanagh’s and Schuchmann’s favorite photos. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.
This program is free and open to the public. It will be held at 10 a.m. in the Drake Community Library, with refreshments beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Parking is available at the Drake Community Library, along Park Street, on Fifth Avenue, and in the First Presbyterian Church parking lot. Seniors needing transportation may call GRMC Communications and Development at 641-236-2593 by the Thursday before the program.
If you are a person with a disability who requires special assistance, please call 641-236-2593. For more information about upcoming speakers, please check GRMC’s website at www.grmc.us.
