Retired farmer, insurance agent and banker, Nelson Leet is proud to announce the publishing of his book. “Our Flying Vet and Other Country Tales” contains forty-five chapters of local history, humor, and Americana.
The first chapter and inspiration for the cover is the story of local retied veterinarian, “Doc” Watson from Orson, PA. Doc’s story is a great start to a book that offers something for everyone. Nelson then goes to WWII POW Steve Simpson, a classmate of Nelson’s in their younger days. Nelson captures a whole different view of our treasured war hero.
In addition to telling his own story, Nelson interviewed over twenty local neighbors and included their “tales” as well. Each chapter begins with an illustration that captures the story to follow. Local artist Lauren Floden from Sherman, PA was more than happy to help bring his book to life.
To launch his book, Nelson is inviting the public to a book signing to be held on Sunday, January 28 at the Preston School starting at 2:00 p.m. (snow date Feb. 4). Refreshments and social hour will follow a short program. Nelson has asked Doc Watson, Steve Simpson, and Lauren Floden to share a few memories as well.
“Our Flying Vet and Other Country Tales” will be available for sale at the signing. All profits from book sales at the signing will be donated to the Northern Wayne Community Library. Copies can be purchased by calling (570) 798-3625.
