Kuna Melba News helps publish new book by Madge Cook Wylie
We at the Kuna Melba News are happy to help publish a new book by Madge Cook Wylie, “Of This ‘n’ That: 50 Years of Articles, Musings and History.” The book is a compilation of Wylie’s columns from five decades of The Kuna Herald and, later, the Kuna Melba News.
Wylie is Melba’s unofficial historian and the recipient of the Esto Perpetua Award, given annually for outstanding accomplishments in preserving Idaho’s heritage. She began her writing career at the tender age of 15, when she took second place in a local radio show writing contest.
Copies of “Of This ‘n’ That” will be available for purchase on Monday, July 4, at the Wylie home at 520 Carrie Rex Avenue in Melba. Stop by anytime between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. for your signed copy. Price is $12. You can pay by check, cash or credit card.
