It was fun putting this exhibit of local Watertown authors together and also to see my husband's book, Flight Path, in such good company. Barbara Blais

I was pleased to find out about the Watertown Library's Local Author Shelf. It was fun to browse! I found a book of my uncle Stow Wengenroth's art and Kay the most friendly and knowledgeable librarian pointed out another book illustrated by Gloucester artist Tom O'Hara. The Library was kind to accept my two books for their collection, "Gloucester: A Photographic Portfolio" showing 24 years of my Gloucester photography and "Trees & Gardens: An Exhibition Catalog" showing my exhibit at Arnold Arboretum in November 2011.

Joseph Weiler, I'm glad you were able to add your two books of photographs to the collection of local authors at the main library.
