Book Signing with Sandy McBride – June 13 at 6:30 pm

UntitledLocal author and freelance writer Sandy McBride has published a new book entitled “A Hometown Is…”.

“A Hometown is . . . ” is a small collection of stories Sandra has written for The Express, a weekly newspaper that for more than 35 years has given voice to the happenings in our small town world here in Mechanicville, Stillwater and Northern Halfmoon in Saratoga County, New York. As she embarked on this quest to find the good stories she knew in her heart were waiting to be told in this community of “neighbors,” to tell of the good things they have done and are still doing, she had little trouble finding a topic to write about nearly every week for 470 weeks. “I have been blessed to be able to bring to our hometown readers a small sampling of the caring, compassion, courage, doing, endurance and just plain fun that goes on right here.”
