By Judy Wilbur Craig - DEXTER - I am please to announce that my long time friend Fred Wintle has published a new book "When Weavers Wove", Short Stories of a Small New England Mill Town. Fred has been a favorite contributor to TheDailyME with his stories over the past few years.
Fred's introduction to his book is as follows:
When Weavers Wove is the story of every small town New England family who lived during the tumultuous transition from Industrial Age to baby boomers of the sixties and seventies and the loss of their innocence. It is an embellished view written by a fifth generation Yankee blessed with the gift of knowing people and capturing their stories from the 19th, 20th, and 21st century.
When Weavers Wove is a collection of short stories written to capture the taste, smell, sounds, and realities of a by gone era. An era that looms large in our memories. An era which, in no small way, still longs for its innocence. When Weavers Wove is by and large a work of nonfiction written as a stroll through Dexter, Maine, a small New England Mill town, which typifies the birth and end of the Industrial Age."
Fred will be having a book signing during Dexter's Winter Festival at the Historical Society Gift Shop on Church Street on Saturday Feb. 17th from 10 to 2. Fred will be reading from his book at the top of each hour during his book signing. There will only be a limited amount of 1st Edition books on hand, so get there early.
Another Dexter 'boy' will also be on hand that day, Artist Mark Robichaud will be displaying his art at the museum.
Local boys showing what great talent we have in Dexter!
The Dexter Historical Society is also holding an OPEN HOUSE with 20% off many items in the Gift Shop. Refreshments will be served. Snow date: Feb. 18. For information call 207.924.5721.
