Frank Hedges, local author and businessman, will visit the Highland House Museum in Hillsboro at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1 to sell and sign his books.

Hedges has written three popular books of humor. “Look on the Bright Side” relates family and funeral stories while “Are We Having Fun Yet?” tells of growing up in Hillsboro and his life’s experiences. The last book, “Stop, I Need a Time Out,” is a hilarious account of situations Hedges has had to solve.

Stop in and hear Frank relate some of his funny experiences.
