From SOuthWind Gallery:
Topeka, KS. SouthWind Gallery, 3074 SW 29th, Topeka, will host a Book Signing Event with Kansas Author Marci Penner this Saturday, May 21, 2011, from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Copies of the book are available for sale at SouthWind Gallery.
Marci Penner is a published author of several books about Kansas, and also serves as Executive Director of the Kansas Sampler Foundation. The 8 Wonders of Kansas! Guidebook is a 272-page book filled with over 800 photos of the 216 winning entries in the “8 Wonders of Kansas” contest. The contest was organized in 2007 by the Kansas Sampler Foundation to inspire awareness of the beauty and value of Kansas, and to encourage travel in the state. When the contest ended in 2010, more than 100,000 people had voted for their “8 Wonders” choices. The book features the top 8 Wonders in the “Overall” category, and the top 8 Wonders in each of the “Rural Culture” categories which includes Architecture, Art, Commerce, Cuisine, Customs, Geography, History, and People.
The stunningly beautiful and imaginative photography by Harland Schuster puts this book in the category of an “art’ book, while the informative narrative and color-coded travel maps make it an engaging read as well as a highly useful travel guide. Whether it's used as a coffee table book or a travel guide, the 8 Wonders of Kansas! is certain to become a treasured Kansas classic.
