A book signing will be held by Alison Roskos Treat from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Friday, May 10 at Sue Hand’s Imagery, 35 Main St., Dallas.

A former Imagery art student, Treat recently published a book titled “One Traveler.” The historical novel is set in Civil War era and takes place mostly in Wilkes-Barre with a few scenes occurring in Georgia and elsewhere in the Confederacy.

It chronicles the unfolding story of a 17-year old slave owner named Sid, who travels north after his parents’ untimely deaths. Upon his arrival in Wilkes-Barre, he is disconcerted to find the Underground Railroad in operation at his uncle’s home.

There are many reference to local landmarks, including North River Street, Wyoming Seminary, Plymouth, Nanticoke and the historically-correct character of William Camp Gildersleeve.

The cover of Treat’s book is depicted by a painting of Hand’s from her recent “Susquehanna Song” collection, a series of paintings from the North Branch of the Susquehanna River.
