Local authors are about to take over the History Center exhibit gallery for a book fair.
This book fair will take place on on Saturday, November 18th 2023, from 12:00PM - 3:00PM at the Oneida History Center. Twenty regional authors will be on hand to sell and sign books, including Dennis Webster, James Pula, Cheryl Pula, Janice Rielly, Diedre Sinnott, and many more.
