David K. Flake, author of An Academy in the Wilderness, the story of the Snowflake Stake Academy, will be at Shevell’s Books and Frames during the annual Snowflake Pioneer Days celebration. He will be available to autograph copies of this significant Snowflake-Taylor history from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Friday, July 26, and from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 27. Local descendants of pioneers of the Silver Creek Valley and out of town guests will find this history to contain the names and stories of hundreds of these hardy settlers, who created a noteworthy educational system and erected two magnificent buildings, the second of which is now 100 years old.
