Local historian to publish first book

(Continued)

PLAINFIELD —

Poray dedicated the book to Susan Miller Carter, a long-time employee of the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library. Carter died in 2009.

“She was a great lover of local history and made the Indiana Room what it is today — a robust archive of Plainfield’s history,” Poray said. “She inspired the love of local history to all who knew her. I think she would have been pleased with this book.”

Locally, the book will be available at Barnes and Noble at Metropolis in Plainfield. It may also be ordered through Amazon or Arcadia Publishing.

“It’s nice to be able to conjure up memories, reminisce, and recall what the community was like in earlier days,” Poray said. “My hope is that folks will open the book, look at the pictures, and say, ‘Oh, I remember that!’”
