Local author Jim Head will host a book talk and signing at the Wauseon Public Library on Saturday, February 1 at 10:30 a.m. in the library’s Reading Room. He will share some of his treasure hunting and metal detecting stories from his book, “Hidden Treasures in Secret Places.”
The Book Talk & Signing are free, and the public is invited to attend. Head will have a limited number of books available for purchase and signing, so you are encouraged, if you need multiple copies, to order his book online. Refreshments will also be available during the Book Talk.
According to Head, “I started treasure hunting when I was about 11. I started finding Indian artifacts on the farms we lived on. I would be so excited…What is it you dream of finding: a cache (hidden money), a watch or ring, Spanish treasure, civil war artifacts? If you can dream, anything is possible. Hidden Treasures in Secret Places is a book full of everything you’re looking for about metal detecting and treasure hunting with over 20 years’ experience and research. This book will help you make exciting finds, meet new friends, teach others and give back with all you have been blessed with.”
Jim Head is married, with two children and six grandchildren, four of whom love to treasure hunt with him. He’s lived in Archbold and Wauseon, working at Sauder Woodworking for 17 years and Haas Door for 11 years. Now in his retirement, he’s sharing his love of metal detecting and treasure hunting.
