Spring Garden Township author Joseph David Cress is at it again. On July 6, he’ll launch his fourth book, “Wicked Carlisle: The Dark Side of the Cumberland Valley,” which dives into true crime cases in southcentral PA.
Thirteen chapters cover almost 200 years of Carlisle history, from the Revolutionary War to the early 1970s, according to a press release.
“History was never meant to be drab and dusty, but alive and active in its ever-changing impact,” Cress said in the release. He’s published three other books with The History Press: “Remembering Carlisle: Tales from the Cumberland Valley,” “Murder & Mayhem in Cumberland County” and “Murder & Mayhem in York County.”
Cress will launch “Wicked Carlisle” July 6 at History on High — The Shop, 33 W. High St., Carlisle. The evening will include two free walking tours, at 5:30 and
6:30 p.m., which will highlight locations from “Wicked Carlisle” and “Murder and Mayhem in Cumberland County.”
For details, contact the store at 717-249-1626 or Cress at 717-324-3921.
