Area author Virginia C. McKinzie will be signing copies of her new book "The Lady Who Lived in a Caboose" at Hastings from 1-3 p.m. Saturday.

This children's book — meant for all ages — is written in poem form and follows the travels of Millicent, who lives in a caboose.

When her neighbors express concerns over her abode, Millicent reminisces about why she loved living in a caboose, and decides she will take her home to the rails and travel. Along the way, she meets new friends and begins new adventures.

The book will be available for purchase at the signing.
