NORWICH – The artists of Made In Chenango Gallery and Gift Shop are hosting a public “Meet the Authors” event on Saturday from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Made In Chenango is known for their fine arts and crafts made by local artisans, but they want to let the community know that the store also features local made honey, maple syrup, coffee, soap, candles and books on topics of local interest that have been authored by county citizens. Three of the authors-on-consignment who have agreed to meet the public at the store are Donald A. Windsor, Thomas Gray and Christine Gibson.
Windsor will talk about his recently published book “Souvenirs of Yesteryear, Exploring Chenango County, New York” which features forty four articles first published as a local history column in The Evening Sun. Windsor says that his writings “represent my early attempts to make local history interesting ... I have been wandering around this place for 42 years.“ In 1997, Don started to lead hikes through BOCES as a fundraiser for the Chenango Land Trust and the articles began as his written version of those hikes. To quote the summary on the back cover “this book, Volume I in a series, takes readers along some of his excursions where he wanders around in the forests, fields and urban settlements of Chenango County seeking out the relics of the past.”
