Mack book signing slated for Saturday

Alberta Mack, widow of the late Chuck Mack, will be signing copies of Chuck’s book, “Remembering Mount Harris,” from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Downtown Books, 543 Yampa Ave.

Much of the content in the stories of Mount Harris appeared in columns Chuck wrote for the Craig Daily Press.

The late author Carol Valera Jacobson assisted Chuck with the preparation of the manuscript for publication. Carol states in the book’s preface: “This was an important story about growing up in a coal camp that I thought would enhance the understanding about the coal industry in Northwestern Colorado.”
