Albany- Author Mary Sterner Lawson held a book signing at June Bug's Grocery. Her book, June Bug's Grocery and the Cornfield Jook, is an oral history of South Albany during the forties and the fifties.

The book is a compilation of interviews given by 60 Albanians and it's cover is a reproduction of a painting by Lawson of the original store.

"It gives the history of the community and a sense of the comradery and brotherhood, and it gives a sense of what life was like in South Albany starting when it was more rural in the 40's and 50's on in to when it was more connected with Albany," Lawson says.

The book is on sale at June Bug's and will be sold in several area book stores.
