NUMISMATIC AUTHORS FEATURED AT DAHLONEGA MINT EVENT

Whitman Publishing issued a press release this week announcing an
upcoming event in Dahlonega, Georgia of interest to bibliophiles.

"The Dahlonega Gold Museum will be hosting a special authors’ signing
day, “A Tribute To Historic Authors,” on July 28, 2007. Visitors are
invited to the museum—in Georgia’s oldest existing courthouse—to meet
state and national authors who will be on hand with their books and prints.

"Coin collectors know Dahlonega as the scene of an early American gold rush,
and the site of one of the United States Mint’s branches in the late 1830s
to early 1860s. Gold coins were struck there from 1838 to 1861.

"Some of the Gold Museum bookstore’s most popular offerings include The
Georgia Gold Rush, by David Williams; John Kollock’s beautiful books and
prints of some of Georgia’s special places and people, including a new
print of the Lumpkin County Historic Courthouse; Lumpkin County Schools Of
Yesteryear, by Larry Scott; Waterfalls Of North Georgia, by Jack Anthony;
Dahlonega: A Brief History, by prolific local author Anne Dismukes Amerson;
and History of the United States Mint and Its Coinage, by David W. Lange.

"Numismatic authors at this year’s event include Doug Winters, author of
Gold Coins of the Dahlonega Mint; and Bill Fivaz, author of the United
States Gold Counterfeit Detection Guide. Whitman Publishing (based in
Atlanta, Georgia) will provide door prizes throughout the day.

"“This is a great opportunity to meet and talk with some great authors in
the heart of historic Dahlonega,” says Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. “If
you’ve never visited the mountains of North Georgia, you’re in for a treat.”

"Admission $2.50 to $4.00. For more information, please contact Angie
Johnson at the Dahlonega Gold Museum at (706) 864-2257 or visit
www.gastateparks.org."
