Even at my non-famous level (9 out of 10 times no one recognizes me at the Farm & Fleet) (and then half the time it’s a relative, neighbor, or Moose Country 106.7 listener), my calendar is such that I meet many, many thoughtful people in passing and simply cannot do justice to their kindnesses or adequately recognize their hard work or support their latest project the way they might hope and deserve. In addition, my email and snail-mailbox overflows weekly with manuscripts, CDs (ok–not so many CDs anymore), advance copies, digital links and attachments, and requests for me to review or discuss more smart, powerful writing and heartfelt art than I could lay my eyes on if it was my full-time job. That said, I keep a box of books and notes and CDs and miscellaneous objects given to me on the road, and when I can I jot a note or make a mention. Thus, Posts from the Box.
Some time ago I promised Yolanda DeLoach I would mention her book “Squatter” when it came out (the Ice Age Trail runs right through my figurative back yard of Population 485) and here it is. The reviews for this one have been terrific.
Also longtime supporter, journalist, author, and kind fellow Greg Peck published Snakes, Squirrels, and Bears, Oh My! last year. Here’s where to find Greg and his books.
