Gallery 50, Waynesboro – New Book Signing, by John Poniske

Friday June 17th, 2022 * 4:30 PM
50 West Main Street, Waynesboro, PA.
Mr. Poniske will discuss and read excerpts from his Civil War era novel, Snakebit, Prelude to War, the first in a series that spans the years of the Civil War and Reconstruction.
Following the discussion, the author will sign books, which will be for sale at the gallery.
“Snakebit is a well-researched fictional account of the Maryland Garret family in the years leading up to our very un-Civil War.
Characters recognize and fear the growing divisiveness within the U.S. government all the way down to rural communities.
It was a time when neither side wanted to listen to the other … sound familiar?”
John was raised in Springfield, Illinois (Lincoln’s hometown), so the Civil War has always held him in its thrall.
He has been a feature reporter, freelance writer as well as a teacher.
He holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in history.
It has long been his ambition to write Civil War fiction.
The Arts Alliance is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and we are delighted to share this type of event with our community.
