EVART\u00a0-\u00a0The Osceola League for Arts and Humanities will host a new series of monthly book signing events showcasing Osceola County writers. All the book signing events take place from 3 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays throughout July, August and September. Renee Tolgo from Tustin will greet readers in the league studio on Tuesday, July 15, to sign copies of her book, "Finding Family in Romania 2013." Renee and her husband, Joe Tolgo, spent a month in Romania to find long-lost relatives and trace the family history of Joe's father who immigrated to America in 1900. They began their quest in the bustling capital city of Bucharest and then ventured deep into the Romanian countryside, visiting towns and villages including Craiova, Orsova and Timisoara, where old traditions still flourish. Eventually they reached the hamlet of Comlosu Mare, where Joe's father was born. "We knew where Joe's father came from and we had three old photos with names on them," Renee said. "That's all we had for clues as we started out. Fortunately, we met one of Joe's cousins in Comlosu Mare and she gave us some tips on where to go next." The book, which features many photos, recounts the joy of finding and meeting new relatives and the pleasure of exploring the beautiful country of Romania. Marion author Randy Rassoul Johnston will be available for a signing on Tuesday, August 12. Her new book, "I Slept in a Pineapple: A Guide to Historic Vacation Rentals in the United Kingdom and Ireland," was released in July by Ch\u00e2teau Press. In this step-by-step guide, travelers learn how to find and book intriguing historic rentals - a captivating collection of thatched cottages, castles, forts, follies, gatehouses, island hideaways, lighthouse keepers' quarters, grand manors, towers and baronial estates. For the same price as a hotel, or less, travelers can enjoy the space, privacy and enchantment of distinctive one-of-a-kind historic buildings. Featuring beautiful color photos, "I Slept in a Pineapple" is handy for travelers and anyone who enjoys reading about the United Kingdom and Ireland. "For a number of years I owned and operated a European travel and vacation rental agency," said Johnston. "I wrote the book to acquaint readers and travelers with some of the fascinating rentals I discovered during many trips to the UK and Ireland."

Peggy Hoard, also from Marion, will appear with two new books on Tuesday, Sept. 9 - "Christmas Skits for Churches" and "Questions," both released this summer by Paws Printing. "Christmas Skits for Churches" is a must for church libraries and anyone who is looking for skits for preschoolers, children and youth that relate the true meaning of Christmas, Hoard said. Hoard wrote and directed all the skits for her church in Marion. In the book, she presents six easy-to-produce skits in a flexible format that can be adapted to suit the resources and needs of most churches. The "How to Use This Book" section has many practical tips - how to adjust the number of cast members, how to alter the music to accommodate the church pianist and singers, suggestions for simple attractive backgrounds and sets and ideas for finding and constructing props. "Questions" is a novella that relates a poignant story based on real events. It traces a mother's journey as she deals with her 18-year-old son's suicide. Faced with questions she cannot find answers for, her heart and mind are filled with a mix of guilt, anger, hatred, anxiety, grief and a desire for revenge. The story allows the reader discover how one mother overcomes powerful feelings that threaten her physical and emotional health, how she helps her family through the crisis and how, ultimately, she finds the path to peace and forgiveness. "I hope this book will be meaningful to anyone who has had a suicide in the family or is struggling to understand the feelings of a friend who may be dealing with such a tragedy," Hoard said. "It is indeed a book about pain and suffering, but it is also a message of hope and healing that comes from prayer and faith."
