Dear –

The 64th Annual Spring Coin Show, sponsored by the Indiana Coin Club Inc., will take place March 12 at the S&T Bank Arena at the White Township Recreation Complex.

The lounge will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature nearly 40 tables with coin dealers from Pennsylvania and surrounding states. Vendors will have coins, currencies, tokens, bullion, and other numismatic items for sale.

There are no admission fees.

A special Coins 4 Kids program will be offered at 1 p.m. and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Local author Mary Kathryn Koma has released the sequel to her debut novel, “The Creek Don’t Rise,” titled “Cobwebs a’Plenty: A Search for Solace in the Shwanee Valley.”

Koma writes historical fiction, so although the story is fictional, the story in her novels is true, as well as many events, she said.

In his works, Koma describes growing up in a small mining town. The sequel centers around the towns of NuMine, Rural Valley, and Shannock Valley High School.

Her books are available at Book Nook on Philadelphia Street in Indiana. She will have book signings every Wednesday night at the R&P Coffee Shop in Rural Valley and will be signing books at Kittanning News on March 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Koma will also be at the Indiana Mall on Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and again on Wednesday, May 4, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
