It’s been just over a month since Jay Turner unveiled his book, “Fading Memories of Pulaski Virginia,” but only about 50 of the 300 numbered first editions are left.
As a matter of fact, the book has been so popular that Turner has already repaid Friends of the Pulaski County Library System the seed money provided to publish it, and he was able to make an additional $1,000 donation to the group.
The 200-page book contains color photographs, with descriptions, of Pulaski County memorabilia Turner has been collecting for more than 20 years. The books, $52.50 including tax, are available for purchase at the Pulaski and Dublin library branches and by calling turner at 540-239-6204, preferably after 4 p.m.
When the second, unnumbered, editions are printed, they will be available at more locations, including Wilderness Road Regional Museum and Valley Auctions in Newbern, where Turner is employed.
A 1976 graduate of Pulaski County High School, Turner said he wanted to put his collection into book form to document local memorabilia for future collectors.
