Vallonia resident to sign new book

John Pesta of Vallonia will be signing his new novel, “The More You Stir It,” during an arts and craft show on Saturday at Trinity Lutheran High School.

Like Pesta’s first mystery, “Safely Buried,” the new book features small-town newspaper editor Phil Larrison, who has a knack for getting himself in trouble. “Safely Buried” has won several honors, including the Best Book of Fiction award in the 2012 Best Books of Indiana Contest sponsored by Indiana State Library.

Pesta’s mysteries also are available on
