JAMESTOWN — Lona McDorman of Jamestown was both a writer and poet. McDorman wrote several chidren’s books, among other publications, but her first love was poetry. Perhaps her favorite writings were reflected in her 1944 book of poetry “Between Dawn and Dusk” which covered a wide variety of topics. While other poets were receiving between 10 and 50 cents per line, Lona was receiving $1 per published line.
