Albert Southwick book signing events and other news

As regular readers of this blog know, Telegram columnist Albert Southwick has several new books available.  Last month he had two book signing events — one at the Worcester Historical Museum, and another at the Leicester Public Library.

If you missed those, you’re in luck — there will be two more book signing events this month:

Saturday, January 18, 2014
1:00-3:00 pm
Food For Thought Bookstore at the Worcester Public Library
3 Salem Sq., Worcester
Cash/check only at this event
(snow date January 25)
Facebook event

Sunday, January 26, 2014
2:00-4:00 pm
Annie’s Book Stop
65 James Street, Worcester
Cash/credit cards accepted

The newer books will be available for sale at either location, or order some in advance and bring them with you to be signed.  Here are the new book titles, with clickable links in case you want a sneak peek at what will be available at the book signing events:

Down on the Farm: Volume I (1956 – 1958)

WWII Correspondence between Albert B. Southwick and Maple Hill Farm: February to June 1942

  WWII Letters from Albert B. Southwick to Maple Hill Farm: June 1942 – May 1943

Selected Writings: Volume 1

Maple Hill Farm & Al Southwick

I’ve reviewed one of the new books already; before the upcoming signing events, I hope to have reviews of two others for you.

It’s unclear whether some of his popular books from years ago (such as Once Told Tales of Worcester County, More Once Told Tales of Worcester County or 150 Years of Worcester: 1848-1998) will be available at the book signing events, but several of these titles are still available for purchase on — one could order a copy & bring it to the event to be signed.

Mr. Southwick has been embracing modernity lately.  He finally has a web page; it’s fairly basic, but has links to all of the books that are still available for sale.  Check it out:

The book signing events at Annie’s Book Stop & the library are both being promoted on Facebook.

What’s next?  Historical tweets?  Only time will tell.

Go, Al!
