Bill Conger and Kim Parks give us a visual experience of local history
Story by Randy Rudder and Tilly Dillehay
The two people who were signed for two similar book projects with Arcadia Publishing last year couldn’t be more different.
He works as a school counselor, with a long history as a radio personality, a writer for entertainment publications, and book author. She is the Executive Director of Historic Lebanon, a nonprofit that works for historic preservation, community revitalization, and economic development.
What do they have in common? A love of local history.
And because of that, they were both invited to join the Images of America team. Over the past year, Bill Conger was signed to write Images of America: Mt. Juliet, and Kim Parks was signed to write Images of America: Lebanon. These books are local editions of a huge series that focuses in on photographic history in local communities across the country. There are over 7,000 editions so far.
