One last minute item you might want to put on your Christmas list is a new book that was released Monday night.
As the title suggests, it's all about Erie. "The Erie Book, 1813 to 2013", with the subtitle "Niagara Bicentennial Edition", was launched at the Bel Aire.
It was actually out in stores last week, but Monday night was the official release party.
It chronicles Erie's history in a beautiful 420 page, full- color, hardcover book.
"If you think of a subject about Erie it's probably gonna be in the book," said publisher Matt Walker. "It includes profiles about businesses, entertainment, architecture, you name it."
You can purchase the book at Wegmans locations in Erie, A la Carte, and the Tom Ridge Environmental Center.###
