Local author Dee Yoder celebrated the release of her new book by visiting Main Street Books in downtown Mansfield. The Miting: An Old Order Amish Novel is Yoder's first novel in a series that will focus on events that actually happened in Amish communities, albeit with scenarios slightly altered and names changed.

"My book is based on the lives of my former Amish friends," Yoder said. "Most of them come from the stricter Amish groups that are mostly living in the Ashland and Richland County areas. I wanted to tell their stories - what happens when they leave, the problems they face when they go out into the world, and also the problems they face after they leave home, what that does to their family relationships."

Along with the book signing, Yoder held a discussion on myths of the Amish, where she dispelled a few persistent myths about Amish culture, such as the Amish mafia, taxes they pay, and the notion of rumschpringe.
