Thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth or rode around in a trolley with me last Saturday. The event was a smashing success; congratulations and thanks to everyone on the committee who worked so hard to put it all together.

There are plenty of new Shiretown tales coming this fall, with an emphasis in October on the mysterious, the scandalous, and the just plain weird!

Happy Terquasquicentennial, Dedham!

September 8, 2011

According to Wikipedia, Terquasquicentennial is a word that means 375th anniversary. Maybe.
Whatever it’s called, all of Shiretown will be celebrating this Saturday at the Endicott Estate starting at noon. Check out the Facebook page and be sure to come on by!!/event.php?eid=145732555508180
There will be historic trolley tours with a script written by yours truly! I will also be signing copies of my book and sharing fun and wacky stories, so be sure to drop by my tent. I hope to see lots of friends, old and new on Saturday, September 10 (which is a pretty important date in Dedham history- see my post of May 18, 2010 called “A Tragic Anniversary”).
