ERIE, Pa. - Aug. 10, 2016 - PRLog -- Books-A-Million to Host Book Signing for Local Author

Eugene Ware will be available to sign copies of local history books

The Erie Books-A-Million will be hosting a book singing on Saturday, August 20th from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. for local author Eugene Ware. Ware will be signing copies of Pennsylvania Lighthouses on Lake Erie and Presque Isle State Park. Be sure to stop by to get your copies signed.

Pennsylvania Lighthouses on Lake Erie

Four lighthouses remain in Pennsylvania, and Lake Erie is home to three. In 1818, Old Presque Isle Light became the first United States lighthouse built on the lake's shore. But a need for even more navigational assistance gave birth to the North Pierhead Lighthouse forty years later. The Presque Isle Light Station first shined on Lake Erie in July 1873. Thanks to the guidance from these landmarks, Erie's port is one of the busiest in the Great Lakes. Author Eugene Ware offers an edifying history of Erie Harbor lights.

Presque Isle State Park

Located on a seven-mile peninsula on the shores of Lake Erie in Erie, Pennsylvania, Presque Isle State Park attracts four million visitors each year. With its designation in 1921, Presque Isle became the second state park in Pennsylvania. From this beginning, the citizens of Erie and surrounding areas developed an affinity and appreciation for the park. Presque Isle has been left relatively unchanged over the years, and when improvements have been made, they have been executed in ways that have not altered the park's natural beauty. Through images gathered from the collections of the author, Erie County Historical Society, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and various other local sources, Presque Isle State Park reflects the history and unique atmosphere of a park that has come to be known as "a place for all seasons."
