CHSTERTON | Janet Edwards will return to the Westchester Township History Museum to present her book "Diana of the Dunes: The True Story of Alice Gray" and her continuing research into the life of one of Duneland’s intriguing women. The program will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Sturday at the museum, 700 W. Porter Ave.

The book is the result of 10 years of extensive research done by Janet Edwards of Beverly Shores, and St. Louis,  into the life of Alice Gray and her family. She conducted much of her research at Westchester Township History Museum with the assistance of museum researcher Eva Hopkins.

Edwards will have her original research materials available to visitors to peruse. Attendees will be able to chat with Janet and ask her questions about her current research.
