An author with local ties will be in Bellefontaine Saturday evening. Beth Deisher (pictured), who's expertise is in the world of coin collecting, is holding a book signing at Peach Tree Books & Gifts.
Deisher lived in Logan County with her husband for 35 years before moving out of the area to be closer to their grandchildren. Deisher still has ties to the area. She says they visit Logan County about once a month and enjoy visiting and catching up with friends. Beth says it is a little weird doing a book signing here since she knows so many people, but is excited to see everyone.
Deisher began writing books about coin collecting back in the 80s when she began working for Coin World published in nearby Sidney. Her new book, Cash in Your Coins: Selling the Rare Coins You've Inherited, is different because it focuses on the "non" coin collector - the person who happens to come across an old bag of coins lying around after a family member passes away. Her other 8 books were focused towards the actual collector.
Deisher is now retired from Coin World, but is still writing.
Listen to Deisher preview her visit.
You can see Beth Deisher at her book signing Saturday night at 5:00 at Peach Tree Books & Gifts in downtown Bellefontaine.
