Everyone is invited to the Katy Depot this Saturday, for the opportunity to meet some of the area’s local authors, do some last minute Christmas shopping, and get your books autographed. According to a media release from the Katy Depot, writers Madge Gressley, Becky Imhauser, Jeff Smith, and Jerusha White are expected to be in attendance. All of these writers have new books in circulation including children’s fiction, adult fiction, Sedalia pictorial histories, and regional narrative histories.

Signing autographs, as well, will be well-known local artist, Myrna Rager. Her artwork is featured on the 2016 Sedalia Commemorative Christmas ornament—the Wheel-Inn Drive-In. People who have already purchased the ornament are welcome to come by the Depot and have theirs signed by the artist between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.  Due to its popularity the Wheel-Inn ornament is out of stock but a waiting list is being collected for those still interested in purchasing one.

The fun and festive event goes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Samples of Missouri-made products such as Wind & Willow and Forever Herbs will be available along with hot cider.

For additional information, contact Jill White, the Site Manager, at 826-2932.
