Train enthusiasts and history buffs are invited to a special presentation on Tuesday, Dec. 5 at 4 p.m. in the Lopez Library Community Room. Charles Givens will talk about his new book, “From Main Lines to Logging Lines.”

Givens is a lifelong learner who retired with his wife, Nancy, after a varied career as a mechanical draftsman, industrial photographer, printer and publisher, and model railroad retail business owner. The magazine he co-founded, The Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette, is still going strong today. His interest in trains and photography led to a passion for history and then for the environment.
