Paul Mattingly, who spent his young years in Orange, will be introducing and signing his new book, From Orange to Singapore: A Shipyard Builds a Legacy, on Saturday, June 3, 2-4PM, at the Orange Train Depot Museum, 1210 Green Avenue.

At the beginning of World War II, Paul moved with his family from Houston to Orange when his father became CFO of Levingston Shipbuilding Company. His book centers on the can-do spirit that combined human ingenuity and hard work that was the culture of Levingston. Visitors who arrive at 2PM will be treated to a 15-minute journey through the book by the author.

Mattingly will be signing books behind an actual donated desk that was used at Levingston back in the time.

Tours of the Depot will also be available the day of the event.
