Dr. Bob Walsh, who spent 40-plus years in public education, has written a book.

He will be available to sign copies of “Life in the Trenches” on Thursday, Aug. 26, at 1819 General Store in Elizabeth from 6 to 8 p.m.

The 230-page, softbound book sells for $12.99 plus tax on Walsh will have copies of the book at the signing available for $15 each, with Walsh donating $10 of each sale to the food pantry at the South Harrison Community Center in Elizabeth.

Walsh said he didn’t write the book to make money, but rather to archive stories for his grandchildren’s children.

The 42 “essays” that comprise the book, Walsh said, are about teaching and coaching moments from the 1950s to 2000s, of Walsh’s years in the field of education, 19 of which were at South Central schools near Elizabeth.
