PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” A new Punxsutawney-based publishing company, Unknown Authors LLC, will host its first-ever book launching event to honor one of its own, Dee Lyle, on the first printing of her childrenâ€™s book, â€śRunning With Miles.â€ť
The book launching will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Walston Club, where state Rep. Sam Smith will honor Lyle on her noteworthy accomplishment.
Lyle, and her husband, Doug, are long-time local residents. Her two sons and daughter-in-laws, Jason and Jennifer Bochert and grandson, Miles, to whom the book was dedicated, and Jeremy and Michelle Bochert, have since moved from the area. Her in-laws, George and Naomi Lyle, reside in Reynoldsville.
Dr. Kitty Lee Scott, founder of Unknown Authors and accomplished author, said local residents have called the book launching a â€śvery unique event.â€ť
Since many residents have shown great interest in attending the event, the Walston Club has graciously opened its doors for all interested guests. Pre-market copies of â€śRunning With Milesâ€ť will be available, with Lyle signing your copy.
While the goal ofÂ Unknown AuthorsÂ is to bring excellent literary works into the homes of residentsÂ by availing its publishing services to local authors, it also seeks new authors who would like to see theirÂ stories in print, but donâ€™t know how to get publish.
Unknown Authors LLC, also offersÂ writing workshops to assist new authors in bringing their talents to print.
â€śWe helpÂ future authorsÂ accomplish their dreams, as one local woman has recently found out,â€ť Scott said. â€śWe applaud Dee Lyle and recognize for herÂ talents and her dedication toÂ bringing her story to print. We encourage everyone to come to this extraordinary event and help Dee celebrate this special day.â€ť
