A community reception for the unveiling of the latest edition of “Tapestries of Tuscarawas County” will be held in the community room of the Dover Public Library on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 2 p.m.

“Tapestries of Tuscarawas County” is a literary and oral history journal published annually that features work by individuals with connections to Tuscarawas County.

“This is the fifth edition of the publication, and it is once again full of original work that paints a picture of Tuscarawas County,” said Kim Jurkovic, local history librarian. “Tuscarawas County contains a lot of hidden talent, and we have people with inspirational stories to tell, whether that be in prose, poetry or art. We are excited to present this latest edition to the community.”

Contributing authors will read portions of their work at the event. The top writing submissions in three categories will be awarded a cash prize. Copies of “Tapestries” will be available for purchase at the reception for $5 a copy.
