Camel resident, Tim Wright, will have a book signing for “The Valley Boys,” from noon to 4 p.m. March 10 at Coats Wright Fine Art & Design in the Indiana Design Center, 200 S. Range Line Rd., Suite 122.
The book is the story of the 1957-58 Springs Valley Black Hawks, who reached the state high school basketball semifinals. The season was the first of consolidation of West Baden and French Lick high schools.
“Tim Wright weaves the story of how this unusually successful basketball season brought two towns together,”’ former Milan star Bobby Plump said in a press release. “People told me they thought the days of the ’David vs. Goliath’ Indiana tournament basketball games could never happen again. But only four years later, here comes little Springs Valley to the state tournament Final Four. The writer takes you on the journey with folks across the state who thought that the ‘Milan Miracle’ would be repeated with another small-town team.”
