Local authors Kenneth Farnsworth, Dr. John Walthall and Robert Mazrim sign copies of their recently published books in The Museum Store. Farnsworth and Walthall’s book, Bottled in Illinois: Embossed Bottles and Bottled Products of Early Illinois Merchants from 1840-1880, describes and illustrates nearly 1,100 different Illinois embossed-bottle varieties produced before, during or after the Civil War. Mazrim’s book, At Home in the Illinois Country: French Colonial Domestic Site Archaeology in the Midwest 1730-1800, focuses on the archaeological reflections of French domestic life in Illinois during the eighteenth century. Both books are published by the Illinois State Archaeological Survey. The Musuem Store offers unique Christmas shopping during the event with refreshments served after 5 p.m.
