Front page news - in Westfield, Massachusetts

A close-up of two of my books on the shelf at Blue Umbrella Books in Westfield, Massachusetts, along with a notice about my upcoming visit to the bookstore on Saturday, December 3rd.

On November 16th, the local daily paper, The Westfield News, featured an article on my upcoming meet-and-greet at the store by Lori Szepelak.  That it made the front page of the paper was an special kick for me, for, as I mentioned in the interview, I used to write a weekly column for this newspaper over thirty years ago when I was a senior at Westfield State College (now Westfield State University).

I'm looking forward to meeting readers and shoppers at Blue Umbrella Books, where all my books will be available for sale and signing.  Blue Umbrella Books is located at 2 Main Street, Westfield, right in the center of town on the common.

Susan B. Anthony - Massachusetts Girl

Susan B. Anthony would have loved to have voted in this election.  She fought hard for the right for women to vote.  She was a Massachusetts girl.  Have a look at our previous post here on the Susan B. Anthony birthplace in the western Mass. town of Adams, now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Many leave their "I voted" stickers on her headstone at her grave in Rochester, New York. 

Go vote for president today.  She never got to.
