WAVERLY — Author Jim Remsen, a Waverly native and a 1967 graduate of Abington Heights High School, will hold a book signing for his newly-released historical novel, “Visions of Teaoga” Saturday, Dec. 13 at both Barnes and Noble Wilkes-Barre locations — from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 7 S. Main St. and at 2 p.m. at 421 Arena Hub Plaza.

“Visions of Teaoga,” published by Sunbury Press, is based on dramatic events in Indian-settler history inthe 1700s along the Susquehanna River. It is a multicultural saga that weaves together the adventures of the actual American Indian leader known in history as Queen Esther and a fictional modern-day middle schooler named Maddy Winter, with a dash of time travel thrown in.
