Local author donates proceeds from latest book

— At 88 years old, Elizabethtown resident Leona R. Warners latest publication “Just Everyday Folks,” Chronicles the life of her Adirondack family over one of the most trying quarter centuries in U.S. history.

The publication compiles never before told accounts joined with previously published memoirs and human interest stories throughout Prohibition, The Great Depression, and WWII.

“A few Johnsburg Historical society members suggested I compile my work over the years into one publication,” said Warner.

An Adirondack native, Warner was born in North River. She resided in North Creek with her husband and family for fifty years. Now Widowed, she moved to Elizabethtown to be near family.

Warner, who “just writes for a hobby,” as she put it, has chosen to give back to the area that’s been so special over years by donating all proceeds to the Adirondack Tri-County Nursing Home and Rehab Center in North Creek.

The book can be purchased at various online sites as well as the gift shop in the Tri-County Rehab Center.
