The book, to be published by Hometown Memories Publishing Company of Hickory, N.C., will be a collection of unusual, nostalgic, humorous, and inspirational stories and anecdotes about the people, places, and institutions in the region.

The publishers urge contributions of stories, anecdotes, and information, which may be suitable for the book. They wish to specify that writing ability or experience is not necessary.
