Martha Woodward Releases Second Book on Monday

Martha Rose Woodward, local author and former Knoxville/Knox County Educator releases her second book on Monday February 16, 2009. Martha Rose in 2007 authored and published Knoxville's Sunsphere: Biography of a Landmark.

Her second book is Knoxville's 1982 World's Fair. The book chronicles the fair that ran from May 1 - October 31, 1982. There are over 200 images in the book. Images of pre-fair site conditions, construction of the fair site and of course the fair itself.

Martha Rose hopes that the readers of this book "will feel like they've just walked into the front gates and taken on a grand tour all around the 72 acres of the event." The highlights of Knoxville's 1982 World's Fair are the Live Entertainment, Displays and Exhibits, Musical and sporting Events and the Food, costumes, rides, games, arcades and more.

This book is published by Arcadia Publishing. Arcadia is the leading publisher of local and regional history in the United States. The book will be available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers (like Amazon) or through Arcadia Publishing at their website, here or by phone 1-888-313-2665.
